I designed a folder containing 8 pages in Illustrator, that makes it 5 seperate Illustrator documents.
To make it clearer for the printer, i want to make a pdf from it all in indesign.
Now, i already placed those 5 ai documents in Indesign.
- i already defined 4mm bleed marks in Illustrator,
- it seems that everything that pops into the bleed space has not been placed inside the Indesign document...
- i have set up the same bleed marks in indesign as in illustrator
My question is:
--> HOW can i have the 4 mm bleed that is contained in my Illustrator page also in the Indesign page?
Hope someone can help me...
When you place the first Illustrator file, show the import options and change the crop setting to Bleed (you did define the bleed box when you set up the file in Illustrator, right?). The setting will stick until changed.
If you didn't set up the bleed box correctly in AI, you are going to have trouble placing the files because there is no other crop option that will give you the art outside the crop margin but maintain a consistent size and positioning. Cropping to Art or Bounding Box will include any of the art off the page, but they are variable in size depending on the artwork.
Thank you so much Peter! This just saved me a lot of time
I really need to get into indesign more
