    custom bleeds for each page?

    Eric Greenfield Level 1

      i changed the size of a page using the page tool to be smaller than other pages in the same document. but the bleed is huge?

      i set the bleed to be .5 all around and it looks good on all the pages except this one

      can i set custom bleeds for each page?

          First, .5 whats? .5 inches, for example would be huge for normal work, .5 pica or cm a bit large, and .5 mm or pt exceptionally small. and essentially useless.

           

          And bleed guides are set as a document level attribute, so one size fits all pages. That actually is a good thing, by the way. Bleed is there to provide a buffer against misalignment in cutting. The size you need is based on the sheet-to-sheet registration capabilities of the printing equipment and the accuracy of the cutter and skill of the operator, and it doesn't change with the page size.
