Publisher needs bleed previews to be implemented, even more than designer.

Recommended Posts

Yeah I thought I was missing something - but obviously there is no bleed preview option in this first beta...

I put the same thing in a different request about ways to improve the New Document dialog. Margin sync lock + bleed settings with sync lock were 1 and 1a.

As the title says, the bleed area is more necessary than ever now.

I was OK with it being pushed back on designer, but publishing definitely needs to have it as soon as possible.

I second that! Being able to view your bleed area not only helps you guarantee you are making optimal use of it, but also helps you to minimise cropping your content any more than necessary. It is a crucial part of creating a document for publication.

I believe the implementation of this feature to be simple. It could be a menu item under 'View', nested right next to Show Guides and Show Margin. Call it 'Show Bleed Area'.
