I have a book I need to export to PDF for a printer. The book is made of several documents (chapters). When I go to export to PDF from the book I select pages not spreads and .125 bleed for both top and bottom and then .125" for outside and 0 for inside. My problem is when it makes the pdf it puts the bleed on the right side only of every page.
How do I set this up so I get bleed on three edges only and not where my spine will go? I tried setting it with making spreads in each individual document then in the book changing to pages but when I do that I get overlap and my page numbers are half covered.
What version of ID? Have you tried setting the bleed in Document setup, then checking the "use document bleed settings" checkbox?
There was a bug several versions back that behaved this way, and it apparently wasn't high enough priority to fix at the time.
