This bug is with the release version of Axure 8.
If you’ve got a repeater set to “fit content in html” with a horizontal layout, and it contains shape whose text is set to “fit to content” (i.e., its left/right drag handles are yellow), it initializes perfectly, but any update to the repeater causes it to no longer fit content in html.
Instead all of the column values squash together, since the repeater is now ignoring the length of the text string and instead is using the authored width of the shape containing the text. The repeater basically turns “fit content in html” off after any update or filter.
