Indesign Export to PDF is Shifting Pages to the Right

When I am exporting my Indesign pages in a Book to PDF the pages are shifting to the right by .25, which is the width of my bleed from the edge of the page and the edge of the content.  However, when I export that pages of the chapters per individual Chapter they do not shift.  I am at a loss of what is occuring in the exporting of the book vs. individual chapters.
I am including an example of pages from each for better understanding.

 

TIA

To add context, can you show a screen shot of the InDesign page, with bleeds and margins showing, and also of your pdf export settings?

Hi levid37094220,

will contents shift if you export to PDF ( instead using the Print menu ) ?

File > Export… > Adobe PDF (Print) (*.pdf)

 

What's your version of InDesign?

What's your version of Windows?

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender

So you may have it offsetting because of a setting, when you export check the marks and bleeds section and see if you see any offset
