    Export to pdf does not show artwork extending to bleed despite correct doc settings and layout!

      This is driving me nuts. I've never had this issue before with InDesign but have recently gotten onto Cloud and upgraded to CS6. None of my artwork is extending to the bleed and it only extends to the crop marks when I export it to a pdf. I am using the same process that I have used in InDesign CS4 and 5 but the result is not the same. I'm familiar with both InDesign and prepress production so I am not sure what is going on. These are the screen shots below:

      And this is the result

      So you can see that despite the fact that my document bleed settings are 0.125", that the artwork extends even past the bleed box in InDesign, and that I export with crop marks using the document bleed settings...the final pdf is still cutting off the artwork at the crop mark instead of extending past it. It's driving me insane as I wouldn't be able to send things like this to the printer!
