    Can you have multiple bleed allowances (along with the multiple page sizes) in InDesign CS5?

      Hi there,

       

      I'm new to InDesign and have a question about documents with mixed page sizes in CS5.  I'm preparing an illustrated book for print and was hoping to be able to contain all the pages (including the covers) in one document.  My basic setup is 140 mm x 210 mm with a 3 mm bleed on each side.  I've managed to add the different cover page (146 mm x 216 mm) and spine (10 mm) dimensions easily enough, but can you have multiple bleed specifications too?  The bleed allowance I need for the case layout is 15 mm.  I've scoured InDesign and the net, but can't find any information about this anywhere.  It would seem rather silly to be able to have multiple page sizes in your document without being able to change the bleed allowance too.  Here's hoping it's possible!  Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. 

       

      Thank you!
