Question on Export PDF with Printer Marks > Crop Marks

Recommended Posts

So I have a simple business card artboard that is 2.25" x 3.75" with a margin and bleed of 0.125" on all sides. This means that after the printer, prints my business card they will cut it down to 2" x 3.5"

What I don't understand about Affinity Designer, is that when I goto Export PDF with Printer Marks > Crop Marks, the Crop Marks correspond to the edges of the artboard. Shouldn't the Crop Marks correspond to the margin & bleed I setup in my document? In other words, the resulting PDF should show the entire 2.25" x 3.75" artboard but the Crop Marks should be set at 2" x 3.5"

How can I achieve this?

I've attached the difference between AD vs. AI (desired output).
