Hello,

maybe I missed something, but I still don't understand how I should create useful print PDF with crop marks and blending area. If Publisher could be serious working software, this is real basic, as well as more sophisticated export dialog.

Any Idea,

 

Thank you very much,

Jirka

The only issue this is still lacking. It is impossible to print a spread -  facing pages as a single page pdf and there is no gutter bleed. Something that is very needed for glue binded books.

Thanks, yes.. I see now where is the option to print as single pages. Did not notice that.

I am still having issue with placing two object on the gutter, both in the bleed. Is there a way to do it?

placing them both in the middle 3 mm into the bleed, makes them show on the other page.

That's pretty normal behaviour for a spread - as you can see it's on the trim edge. 

If you want to bleed off the gutter - then you'd need to use single pages. 

Sorry - I don't think there's a way to automate this in Publisher. 

As the object will only go so far - think if it was a complex image of a face, if the image stopped at the nose, then there's no further information. So how would it know what to bleed to the next page? 

 

Basically - doing any wirebound books etc, requires bleed on both edges - so you'll need to turn off Facing Pages to use single page instead.

What are you talking about. It is pretty common to set up a book in spread mode with the intention of creating a glue bound book. ID offers gutter bleed. And there is nothing special about this feature. It actually makes more sense to create a book in spreads than single pages. Single page documents brings other issues. If you want to put an object on both spread, you have to put it in the document twice. Let's not forget the whole issue of not being able to see what you are actually creating. 

I hoped I was missing something and this was actually possible in APub. Since this is not resolved, I think it is fair to point it out. Would be great to get this implemented. I use this kind of placement pretty often, so for me is quite must.

I may be misunderstanding your issue here. 

I have exported both INDeisgn and Affinity files to PDF and get the same result. 

Untitled Aff.pdf

Untitled-1.pdf

 

Please can you clarify? I would love to help you with this. 

 

This actually was very helpful. It was on me. Idk what I was thinking. I went on replicating your thing and tried a few more thing. Two objects that go in the gutter and one that spans over, and it works well.

Thank you Eugene!

I have though notice something else. In facing pages, the bleed cannot be set separately for inner and outer edge, only left and right. I don't know if that was intentional.

Wow, thanks a lot Eugene Tyson - and the others that contributed for this answer -  that difference between "All pages" and "All Spreads" is what I have been missing for a couple of weeks!! :)
