  1. Thanks
    serge got a reaction from meg.petrillo in Handling bleed in 1.7.0.58 (split)   
    Here are the blurb specifications for the document (premium magazine) that I created on affinity publisher (see blurb_settings.png image)
    I set in publisher  bleed options (see publisher_bleed setting.png image) the bleed specifications that are stated there and, in the export option (see export_options.png image), I have to select "all pages" instead of "all spread".
     
    If, on the other hand, I set the bleeds to 0 in publisher options (see bleed_options_set_to_zero_in_publisher.png image), the resulting pdf uploaded to blurb pass is accepted with success (see blurb_successful_upload.png image).
     
    So, in effect, like I said before, my document is only accepted by blurb if I do not set any bleed at all.

    Now if you look at the blurb specifications (see sizes_specs.png image) you can see that:
    - there is a setting for the "Final exported PDF File" which states  8.625 inches x 11.25 inches,
    - and there is a setting for the "page size/trim line" : which states 8.5 inches x 11.0 inches.
    but in Affinity publisher, there is no option to set the difference between the "Final exported PDF File" and the page size/trim line. there is only an option to set dimensions of page (see page_dimensions.png image).
     
    So the question is, what values do i need to enter in the publisher settings to have the bleeds included in my document and for the exported pdf file to be compliant with the blurb requirements.
    I used scribes before, and I was able to have my pdf document complying with blurb, even with entering the bleed value specified in the blurb specs. Am I missing something on publisher?

    Be that as it may, On my document, I have to put 0 in the the fields on the bleed section ( and export the document to pages, not to spreads), otherwise, the exported pdf document is not compatible with the Blurb requirements showed in my initial post. It is weird.

    serge reacted to A_B_C in Inside/Outside Bleed instead of Left/Right Bleed   
    Hi there,
    wouldn’t it make sense to change the current Left Bleed / Right Bleed implementation to Inside Bleed / Outside Bleed. At the moment, it doesn’t seem to be possible (a) to design on spreads and (b) export to pages without adding a bleed area along the binding edge. See my schematic below. Exporting to pages will add bleed along the edges indicated by the red arrows.
    However, as described in this thread, there are some print services that do not accept PDF documents due to this limitation and force the user to manually set up the document. This issue could be easily solved by adopting Inside Bleed / Outside Bleed instead of the current implementation. This is the more general setting which is suitable for a larger number of use cases.
    Thank you for considering,
    Alex
