I am setting up full bleed pages for a screw post book in In Design (creative cloud). I've set up 1/8" bleeds and a 3/4" interior slug (I need extra width along the interior of each page to punch the holes for the screw posts). I have facing page spreads with images that run across the gutter. This seems like it should work, when I print the layout is what i intend.
BUT- I want to be able to draw guidelines for the screwpost holes within the interior gutter - to help me make sure I get them in the same place on each page. I'd make some marks in the interior slug area, which won't be visible once the pages are bound. Within in design, if I have facing pages, I can see the top/bottom/exterior bleeds and slug. But i can't view the interior bleed or slug, it just shows the facing pages butting up against eachother (even in bleed/slug mode).
Is there a way to view facing pages WITH interior slugs/bleeds shown as page space?
thanks for any help!
See InDesignSecrets » Blog Archive » Breaking Pages Apart to Bleed Off a Spine. Harbs posted a script in the comments that will do all pages.
Note that images that cross the spine may be on only half the spread after you do this. if that happens, copy, then change to the other page and Paste In Place.
thank you! I did stumble across that post but was hoping there was a way to do it without copying all my images that span the binding. I also thought I would have to split each page manually, thanks for noting the script. I will check that out.
