I'm trying to print a booklet from CorelDraw X7 to our Ricoh printer via EFI Fiery controller. 8.5x11 finish size on a 12x18. My document includes bleed, but when I use booklet mode it prints exactly at 8.5x11 without giving me any bleed. Is there a way to print it with bleed without having to print the file from PDF instead?
You have to set the document page size to the required size with bleed
I had considered that option but it becomes a bit messy when having to send PDF proofs to the client as the spine side doesn't need bleed. It seems there is no short process to accomplish this:)
Thanks for your response!
If you know your design will extend to the paper’s edge, you can set up the bleed area right when you create your document.
Upon launching InDesign, click Create new. (See Create a new document to learn more about customizing your new document.)
Select the Print tab at the top. In Preset Details, choose your preferred measurement units.
Scroll, and then click Bleed and Slug to expand the panel. Type a bleed value in any units. For example, you can type 0.125 in or 3 mm even if your document uses picas or something else. Set the same bleed on all sides, or click the chain icon to set different values for the top, bottom, inside, and outside settings.
Note: Bleed values of .125 in (3mm) are standard, although some print providers may require a larger bleed area.
Optionally, you can include job notes and instructions for your printer in a slug area that typically extends beyond the bleed area. The slug is also trimmed off.
