Bug introduced in 8.0.4 or earlier and persisting through 11.0.1 or later

I believe this is a bug in GraphicsGrid.

x = Graphics[Circle[]];
g1=GraphicsGrid[{{x, x, x}, {Item[x, Background -> Red], SpanFromLeft, x}, {x, x, x}}, Frame -> All];
g2=GraphicsGrid[{{x, Item[x, Background -> Red], x}, {x, SpanFromAbove, x}, {x, x, x}}, Frame -> All];
g3=GraphicsGrid[{{x, Item[x, Background -> Red], x}, {x, SpanFromAbove, x}, {x, SpanFromAbove, x}}, Frame -> All];
Row[{g1,g2,g3},"   "]

enter image description here

SpanFromAbove do not works like expected, formats are not respected.

Changing GraphicsGrid into Grid we get:

enter image description here

I tested this in V9 for Win and in V10 for Mac and Win.

  • $\begingroup$ confirm in MMa 8.0.4 and 10.0.0 under Win7 x64. Note that by default GraphicsGrid has Alignment -> {Center, Center} while Grid has Alignment -> {Center, Baseline}. $\endgroup$ Jul 16, 2014 at 6:45
