Hello everyone...!

 

I'm trying to export PDF file with crop marks 1mm, but it shows 12mm in exported file.

I cant' affect an output by changing setting in export menu. Can anyone help and explain 

why this happens and how can I change it...?

 

Thanks...!

Can you be a bit more specific? I'm not sure what you're talking about.

 

BTW, a lot of printers don't even want them. The crop / bleed info is included in the exported PDF and they prefer to create their own.

Offset is the distance from the art. Your screenshot looks fine.

I have to deliver PDF with dimensions on Image 1.

But when I'm exporting file, it adds some parameters, which I can't reduce 

to the prefered size. See Image 2

I would pick up the phone and get all of this clarified because I believe you are overthinking this.

I think you misunderstand this image. It explains that your InDesign document must measure 172 mm x 55 mm with a bleed of 1 mm. That's all.

Hi @defaultbp54urts306h , The Offset is the distance the Crop marks are offset from the page trim:

Also, in your first capture you’ve exported the bleed area, but your black fill is aligned to the page trim and is not included in the bleed area:

Oh, that is a rare question!

Also, there is a script called: "CropMarks.jsx" that can be customized.
