    Bleed settings come out wrong when export to PDF

    it@caotti.net Level 1

      I'm working on a 5x13 door hanger in InDesign with a .125" bleed on all sides. I did the front in Illustrator and brought it into ID and I did the back entirely in ID since it's text heavy.

       

      When I export it to PDF with bleed and crop marks showing, the crop marks show up where the color ends instead of .125" in from the edge of the color.

       

      I keep double checking both the ID and Illustrator documents, and I can't see anything wrong. Maybe I'm missing something, but I can't think what.

       

      Has anyone run into this problem before? Any thoughts on what I might be missing and how to fix it? Maybe ID handles bleeds differently than what I'm used to?
