Hello,

I'm sorry if this has been asked before or if the solution is very obvious!
But I'm setting up a large document with 128 pages and I've just realised I need bleed on the inner part of the facing pages "spread". If I disconnect them there is a 3mm bleed as I need but I prefer seeing two pages at once. Is there any way to add a bleed at the seam of those two facing pages? Long story short: I need bleed on all sides of every page!

Thank you!

Welcome to the forums.
Unless I have misunderstood something, I think you may be confused about what bleed is used for.
Bleed is used to extend the printed part of your document so that you don’t get any white space at the sides if the paper is not cut absolutely precisely. Since you wouldn’t normally cut the paper in the middle of a spread you don’t need a bleed area there.
I think you may need to use separate pages rather than facing pages.

I think Dinan wants to see separate pages with bleed shown side by side. The only way I know of is floating windows with a new view of the same document to have them side by side. But you have to scroll both views and you are not able to drag elements from one view to the other.

There are several programmes capable of a two-page-view with simultaneous scrolling.

Do you need bleed (which you can already do in the bleed settings), or do you need to see the bleed? It's present in your Facing Pages document, but Publisher doesn't display it when you're viewing the pages. You'll only see it if you break the pages apart for viewing within Publisher, or during Export to PDF when you choose All Pages rather than All Spreads.

If you use spiral binding you need bleed in spine part... otherwise bleed should be 0 towards spine.
