My exported pdf file for an InDesign document with a set bleed is showing the first two page spread incorrectly. The bleed from the right facing page is showing on the blank page and appears to be much larger than the actual bleed size indicated/selected. I have tried exporting a couple of different ways and the problem persists. Help!

Yes, for saddle-stitch, you'll have to de-couple the spreads.

I've moved this from the Using the Community forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the InDesign forum so that proper help can be offered.

THe export is correct. If you want to avoid taking the bleed from the opposite page you have to separate the pages into two spreades.

Hi Willi,

or move one of the pages with the Page tool selected up or down in the same spread.

Do that with the Transform panel.

That's somewhat normal if you have facing, 2-page spreads, and you've applied bleed to the inside edges. What's the binding method?

@John Mensinger we are looking to booklet print with saddle staple. I am going to try splitting the layout, called out above, just to be safe.

Thank you! I went in and turned off facing pages in the document set up and it seemed to work when I exported again. Is that what you mean by de-couple spreads?

@John Mensinger Not necessarily...

I believe saddle-stitch pages are usually joined at the spine at the page edge. The bleed is mainly used on the outside to compensate for shingling. 

Also, if an image or text runs across the spread, you don't have to de-couple.

That being said, I would follow the printer's instructions.

You could change the inside bleed to 0 (zero).

If you have a mix of cross-gutter bleeds, you can output in two ways then combine as needed in Acrobat.

Hi @Laurianne24675104u3mw  Also, unless the binding method has a visible inside trim, e.g. wire-o, the spreads will be imposed and folded. The inside bleed would be removed during the imposition so its content doesn’t really matter.

For saddle stitch binding you don’t have to do anything. Leave the pages as facing and either export with a 0 inside bleed, or if the printer is asking for a bleed let it come from the facing page. The printer might want some bleed to handle paper creep in the imposition, but by definition creep is not visible—it is hidden in the binding.
