I can confirm these and additional image display object issues.
OS System: 10.14.6
PDF and/or JPEG files will display in an IDO using all versions of the “align:” option.
However - only when using the align options “Scale to fit” and “Tile” will any other PAN 10.2 object show above an image display object - regardless of selecting “Arrange --> Bring to Front.” This makes it impossible, for example, to display a PDF (tax form) and use the text display object to complete the form without risk of distorting the PDF or having it tile on it’s own.
For me - Image Display Objects with any other align option are opaque edge to edge (even if the image displayed is not edge to edge in the IDO) and are always displayed as the top most layer on the form. I have tried every object from the object library - all are covered by the image display object when “align” is set to anything but “Scale to fit” or “Tile”.
A new observation with 10.2 - when printing a form with any Image Display Object on the data tile - the print preview that comes up as part of the Mac OS Print dialog box also does not show the contents of any Image Display Objects at all - unless the IDO align option is either “Scale to fit” or “Tile.” Then… if I’m using “Tile” for alignment - the preview is messed up/distorted, but the page does print as expected; and if I’m using “Scale to fit” with the IDO’s, the page preview in the Print dialog box DOES look correct, and the page prints as expected.
I still hope to be able to display, print and compile a library of one page pdf images (sheet music) using “Top Center” - as none of the music pages are the same size - all are slightly different. I can’t use “Scale to Fit” as it will distort the music, and unless the pdf mostly fills the IDO using the “Tile” setting, it does what it should… and tiles the pdf for that record.
Also - as was reported a year ago or so - none of these issues appear using Mac OS 10.12.x or earlier. I have a Parallels Desktop virtual Mac High Sierra OS using the latest PAN 10.2 beta and the Image Display Objects function perfectly using any “Align” setting.
Can anyone else confirm this type of Image Display Object issue?
(this got long… apologies)
