I am fairly new to InDesign. I have been creating documents and it seems like every time I try to print it doesn't print on the whole page. I want it to cover the whole page but it seems like there is always a quarter in of white boarding the whole page. I am using the bleeding and it still doesn't seem to work. I am lost as to what I need to do. I don't know if it is because my layout is letter and not A5 or something. I am doing a very important piece in a magazine and need it to cover the whole page and have no white boarder space around the page.
That is your printer, not InDesign.
Most printers have a white space around the edges when printing for the printer grips, etc.
Only if your printer allows for edge to edge printing will it go all the way to the edge.
An easier solution is to print to a large sheet with trim marks and bleeds and cut to size.
Most home and office printers are not capable of borderless printing. That quarter-inch in gripper, and is required for the printer to function properly.
When you send your files to the magazine, they will print it full size on a larger piece of paper, and then trim it to size.
Oh I get it know. Thanks for the information!
