Extraneous lines when export to pdf for print with bleed

Recommended Posts

I'm using Affinity Publisher on Windows desktop and am a new user.

I set up my document with .125 bleed.  Then I worked on the document.  When it comes time to export as pdf for print, if I check the "include bleed" option, I'm getting strange extraneous lines along the sides or tops of some pages.  Some of the lines go half way.  I don't know what I'm doing wrong.  I did see another post discussing white lines around a page, but I don't think this is the same issue.  In the attachment, please see the extra vertical line along the left side of the page.  Thanks for any help you might offer.

It might be an idea to upload the file.

.125 what unit of measurement is that? inches, cm...

Are the horizontal lines an image or pen drawn?

Don't you have a frame or rectangle on this page with a border that would show in the bleed area when it doesn't cover the full page from bleed to bleed?

I'll answer the above questions and also attach a portion of the affinity pub file and also the exported documents.

When I set up the document, I set the bleed to .125"

The horizontal lines are pen drawn.

There is no rectangle frame - I didn't draw one or insert one.

When I export without bleed checked off, it is a clean pdf with no extraneous lines (I did get a border around a picture, but I probably placed the image in an incorrect manner.  I will research/figure that out.  I inserted it just for this example anyway).

When I export with "include bleed" - then I get extraneous lines.  See lines next to questions 2, 6 and 8.

Also, preflight does not indicate any bleed issues
