hello. i have set my document to have bleeds at .125 (as requested by printer). I have pulled all graphics over the bleed area. See screenshot #1. However, when i export this with the pdf setup as requested by the printer, the bleeds are not going past my page size -- i'm not seeing the bleeds. Screenshot 2.
i know something is off - any ideas? think it is within my pdf presets? should i have the bleed marks box checked even though the printer's suggested presets don't show that?
thanks for helping me clear my thoughts about bleeds and such! I'm not 100% sure about bleed marks, registration marks, crop marks etc.

In your pdf print export, did you switch on Use Document Bleed Settings?
As a workflow habit, I make bleed regions snap to the bleed lines. This helps convey meaning to the prepress people.
i feel idiotic; i just found that; and right below that had all my bleed settings set to 0. Duh! all fixed and good now.
