primary text frames threading is not honored on document pages
- Adobe InDesign 15.0.1 x64 (Windows 10)
- Facing pages document. I create a master page that includes two text frames per page--creating a two column spread on each page. I designate the leftmost frame as the primary text frame, and then manually link it to the frame just to its right. That frame is then linked to the leftmost frame on the right side page, and that one is linked to the frame furthest to the right. So the frames are linked, from left to right: frame 1 is primary, which is linked to frame 2, then to frame 3 (on the other page) and then to frame 4.
Using the pages panel, I manually insert four pages into my document, assigning the new master page to these pages. The first three text frames are threaded correctly, but then the threading goes completely haywire.
I would expect the new blank pages to replicate the text threading order that I created on my master page.
The text threading goes wacky. I have included an image to demonstrate.
This seems similar to the problem posted in this Bug report (34661228-based-on-master-pages-don-t-inherit-primary-text-f.html) however on the document pages my text frames ARE threaded, just not threaded in the same manner as they were on my master pages. Plus, I am using a much later version of InDesign than the one that fixed that particular problem.

I can confirm the same behavior with CC2018 and CC2020. Discovered, that reapplying the same master to a newly created pages fixes the proper order of the text frames threading. Which definitely means a bug IMHO.
