Duplicating pages moves content
It seems duplicating pages in Indesign 2019 or 2020 moves content around the page. This is the first time I have experienced this after opening an old file, saving it as a new file and then trying to duplicate a page. The fix I found for this is to UNTICK 'Adjust layout' in the 'Layout/Margins and Columns' dialogue box and then try duplicating the page again. This time the content should not move. Definitely an adjust layout bug.

When I duplicate a page with placed items, they duplicate but scale down in increments per duplication until they disappear into the centre of the page.
Yep - unticking 'Adjust Layout' stops it from happening, but it's extremely annoying and should be fixed.
I have the same issue, and ADJUST LAYOUT was unticked... I turned it on, and back off... nothing helped.
Here is an example of the copy and pasted circle on the left moved the font inside... altho its set to be align vertically within the shape, baseline grid is off, etc...
Thank you! I was trying to figure out why both my image and text boxes were getting larger when I duplicated pages.

Duplicating Pages scales down content. I haven't figured out why this happens as it doesn't happen with all documents.
It shouldn't happen with any document, however. It's just duplicating a page. Should not transform in any way.
- Adobe InDesign 15.0 (has happened with earlier versions as well)
