Bleed not working after Artboard created in Designer

Recommended Posts

I’m am new to bleeds, so maybe I’m doing something wrong, but…

If I create a new document in Designer for iPad, and in the document setup dialog I don’t create an artboard, then once the document is created, I can select Bleed from the document menu and add & change bleeds on any side.

If, however, I create a new document and select Artboard in the document setup dialog, then once the document is created, I select Bleed from the Document menu, I get the options to view & create bleeds, but they don’t show up. Also, the Include Bleed option is disabled on PDF Export.

Likewise, if I create a document without artboards, and then add a bleed (say, on just 2 sides), it works fine, but once I selecte Document—>Artboards and add an artboard, I can no longer add or edit the existing bleeds.

Are bleeds meant to work with artboards?

Can different artboards within a single document have different bleeds? (I’m guessing not.)

Thanks.

Oops. I’m running the iOS (iPadOS) 13.1 beta, so I guess this should be in another forum. But I’ve searched and found similar problems with bleeds on iOS 12, so I don’t think it’s the beta causing problems.

OK, as long as your document isn’t too complex, there’s a simple workaround. The artboard addition isn’t terminal.

1. Go in and select everything but the artboard itself, then copy it to the clipboard (not sure what the limit is? Is there a warning if you exceed it?).

2. Delete the artboard(s). The document retains the size of the last artboard deleted.

3. Paste everything back in (but still no artboard).

4. Add/change bleeds to your heart’s content. They work!

5. Optional: add back in the artboard(s).
