I have a document that has art (like photographs) that go out to the trim, top, left and right, on chapter openers. I have set the document bleed to 1 pica and made sure these photos extend past the margins on the InDesign pages. However, when a chapter opener is a verso page, and I do all this, the part of the art that extends past the right margin shows up on the left side of the PDFs created in the way I create all PDFs for printers (using their Distiller settings). If this is not going to show up on the final printer, I don't mind, but I don't understand why I see these parts of images from verso pages, given that the bleed is supposed to go all around the document page, including the spine/fold area, are showing up on the following recto page on the PDF. Worrisome for my production staff who check printer PDFs. Any insight would be most welcome.
I am assuming that your document is setup as spreads.
In your pages window:
Highlight all pages in spread
Check: Allow Document Pages to Shuffle
Check: Allow Selected Spreads to Shuffle
I will ask you:
Do you want to maintain the current number of pages on these spread?
Your document will go from spreads to single pages, from here you can make your PDF without overlapping from previous page.
Thanks 33 Steps. I should have thought to try changing from spreads to single pages. That worked very nicely.
