Crop marks out of alignment on double sided pdf

Mar 10, 2013 11:45 PM

I have an Indesign CS4 two page document I have saved as a press pdf with crops. The client has just told me the double sided proof has come back with the crop marks out of alignment (offset vertically). Isn't this something the printrer can easily sort, or should I be setting it up differently in Indesign??

 

Cheers

Jacqui

    Can you please describe what you have done?

    How did you set up your document? Single or facing pages? Bleed?

    How did you export the PDF?

    A screenshoot of the problem would also a help to help.

    You should set it up as facing pages if it is double sided.

    Did you set up the bleed in the document set up?

    Please provide a screenshoot of what you are doing.

    I don't see a reason to do that for a two-page document. It makes it harder to scroll between the pages since thay are not vertically aligned on the pasteboard and it should have no effect on things like crops.

     

    And yes, screen shots of the page in ID and the PDF would help a lot....
