Hello my fellow InDesign friends

 

Greetings from Australia. Hope you are keeping safe wherever you are.

 

I was wondering if anyone knew how to solve this strange bleed issue that I am having. I set my bleed (3mm x 4 sides) in InDesign and exported to PDF. Every other page seems to work fine but then these 2 are giving me a bit of headache (Fig 1).

While in InDesign, everything seems to look fine  (Fig 2).

I would appreciate your tips and suggestions.

 

Thank you,

With facing page documents the inside bleed comes from the spread’s opposite page. That is normal behaviour—with most binding methods the inside bleed is removed when the book is imposed because the inside edge is folded not trimmed.

Do you mean the difference between Normal and Preview screen modes? (Keyboard shortcut, with nothing selected w.)

Or is it another issue?

Hi Derek

 

I was hoping to find a way to resolve the issue I see in the PDF version. Image 2 (the InDesign picture) was provided to show that while the InDesign setup looks okay, when I export it to PDF, the issue appears.

 

Many thanks,

 

Suzi

Are you stating that the bleed does not appear in your PDF, if so, have you ticked "Use Document Bleed Settings" in the Export Adobe PDF dialogue box under the Marks and Bleed tab?
