    Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding

    MagicToaster Level 1

      I'm running Indesign CS5.5, on Win 7.

       

      When I set up my documents with bleed and I alternate with between normal and bleed view (W), the bleed is always visible.  Is there a way that I can tell InDesign not to show the bleed in normal view?

       

      Also...

       

      "♫ I 'don't care what they say,

      it is normal view.

      They try to pull me away,

      but they don't know the truth

      My heart's crippled by the preview that I keep on closing.

       

      You cut me open and I...♫"

          Just to clearify—your setting the bleed from Document Setup and not manually right?

            Yes, I'm setting the bleed from the Document Setup window.

              If I am understanding your request, then the answer is, I believe, no. There is not a way to turn off or hide the bleed in normal view. Normal view is where you are able to see the entire structure of your layout and elements on the pasteboard. Unless, of course, you are one of those people who turn off everything (hide guides, hide frame edges, etc.) from the normal view.

               

              I prefer to use the normal view to see what I am working on, where the frames are, how they align to the guides, etc. When I want a preview of the printed page, then I use one of the other view options to hide the page elements for me.

               

              If I want to see the page and all the elements, use normal.

              If I want to see the page without bleed, use preview

              If I want to see the page with bleed (but nothing on the pasteboard outside the bleed), use bleed

              etc.

              PS: Once you select one of the preview modes (preview, bleed, slug, etc.), using the 'w' key will toggle between the modes until you select a new alternate mode.

                Preview!  That's exactly what I needed!
