I'm new to Affinity, and maybe I'm missing something, but I design and print labels for various products.  I start with one file in Publisher that has the labels for a product type, then I'll export certain pages to a PDF, and import them into a new Publisher file that has the layout for the label sheets I'm using.  Some designs have a bleed, and I always make sure to include bleed on export, but when I import (place) them into the new file, the bleed isn't included.  I'll double check the pdf file dimensions to make sure the bleed is there, but the file gets trimmed to size when I import them.  Is there a setting I am missing somewhere?

Welcome to the Affinity forums :)

Select the placed PDF with Move Tool. The context toolbar has a control labeled Page Box where you can choose from "BleedBox", "CropBox", etc.

Hiya, do you know if this function is available on Affinity Designer for ipad? I can’t find it anywhere! I used to import PDFs onto a blank page in Designer for desktop all the time and then use the PageBox function but I can’t find it on the ipad. :(
