@Gab5CAC

Those lines are on the parent page B, remove them from there...

Hi @Gab5CAC , Are you viewing in Acrobat? By default the Acrobat trim is a green line—should look like this when crops are included:

@Gab5CAC,

 

I downloaded your pdf and found that there's two grey lines on each side of the page as you described. These lines are coming from your InDesign document,  you'll need to go back and remove them there.

Thanks, I think you are - the problem is: I don't know how. I took over the project and this was already there - but I only noticed it now.

Hi @Jumpenjax , as Mike noted, the lines are in the ID file and PDF, Acrobat’s Object Inspector shows them as stroked paths.
