Resize Document/Canvas is trimming the bleed area

Recommended Posts

I found this issue in the Mac version and I've verified the same behavior in the Windows version. In working with a PDF template, when changing units using Resize Document or Resize Canvas, the dialog strips the bleed from the dialog. This was not the behavior in 1.7.3. This is why I am NOT a fan of combining two functions in the same command (e.g. Rasterize & Trim) There are times when I want to change the unit of measure without resizing the document/canvas. Note the transform dialog versus the resize dialog. The difference appears to be the bleed outside the visible area, so it's trimming the bleed or the non-visible elements outside the visible area.

Hi @wshill,

I'm not entirely sure I follow you on this.

You resize the document

Your document size does not include any off-canvas shapes/objects. However, when you resize, the offcanvas elements(bleed in your case) will resize accordingly.

I am somewhat confused, @wshill.

You seem to be working in Photo, which as far as I know doesn't directly support Bleed. There are no Bleed settings when creating a document in Photo, for example. So where did you get a Photo document that contains Bleed?

you can open a AFPub-Document with bleed in Photo.

True, but it would be good to know if that is what happened, for diagnostic purposes.

And in any case, the file wshill showed is a PDF file. It is unclear to me whether Photo would understand Bleed from a PDF file that it opened.
