I have an issue that is more of an annoyance than a major problem. I put togethers ads in Illustrator and then place them in my InDesign template. Instead of a 4.75" x 5.375" ad placing in a 4.75" x 5.375" space, I get the ad plus the blue frame edge surrounding the ad. The problem is when I want to precisely place the ad using InDesign. If I want the border of the ad to be placed right at 0 and 0, I can't do that because InDesign instead places the frame edge at 0 and 9 and the border of the ad might be .1" or .2" inside the frame edge. I can hide the frame edge, but that does not solve the problem. Is there any way to make the frame edge exactly the same as my ad borders? I have made sure there are no stray points in the Illustrator files prior to placing them in InDesign.
Thanks. I'm not sure how well you can see this, but there is a blue frame box around the ad at the left side of the page that is larger than the ad itself. This causes a problem when I try to precisely place an ad using InDesign. For example, it I want the ad at the upper left of the page, I type 0 and 0 for X and Y. The frame box will be at 0 and 0, but the ad border itself is not. If I use "Fit Frame to Content," that doesn't seem to fix things. Apparently, the Illustrator file is showing content outside of the ad border but I don't see any and cleanup founds no stray points. I could copy and paste the ads into InDesign to solve the frame problem. However, I update many of the ads month to month and want to have links so the ads update automatically in InDesign.
Wish List Preference, not set in stone...occasionally Show Options was not last used, as noted in this post, it defaults to the last used setting. I know when I want it, and what I want; the only worthwhile instance of eps is that it seems to always place to bounding; the new norm of ai usage dictates toggling Bounding as opposed to trim. I place one ai to every 20 pdf's, on average.
