Can I view bleeds in Designer?

Recommended Posts

I have a .25 inch bleed for a document I've set up in Designer. But it appears there's no way to actually see the .25 inch bleed. You just have to push a shape off the edge of the page and hope it's enough to cover the entire bleed area.

Is there any way to actually see that bleed on the screen? Thanks!

So basically, being able to see bleeds — an essential thing for designing print material — "will be available in a future version" for the past 3 years. Which probably means it's not going to happen any time soon, if ever. 

It's really incredible that I end up hating Affinity apps even more than I hate Adobe apps, but once again, it's happened.

It is available in Designer 1.7 beta. Behaves well – though bleed lines are light grey, and if you have set pasteboard to light grey you are not able to see them...

I'm happy to see that you can now see bleeds in Designer. I turned on bleeds for a document I was working on recently, but I'm confused as to what I'm looking at because the Help says there should be guides but I don't see what the Help files shows me, I see this...

What exactly am I seeing here with the thick black and white borders around the page? The center white box is the sized of the finished piece. These bleed guides make no sense to me.  This is what the online Help says bleed guides look like in Designer:

I don't see those guides at all when I have View Bleeds turned on.
