Bleed over gutter? QE10

Postby Dunkel » 21 Aug 2017, 09:47

Hello again everybody!

First - Thank you for your patinence with my questions!

Here is one that I really do not know how to solve... Is there some way to get bleed over the middle section of a spread?
What I try to mumble is that if I have a spread with a image overlapping the gutter, and the »routing margin» (sorry, I do not know these terms in english).

See the image below. Imagine that I have a picture from left to right page. How do I ensure the right bleed in the center, and how do I do that with QE10?

Thanks for all info and replies! I really mean it, thank you!

I'm not entirely certain what is being asked. So please excuse me if this doesn't answer the question.

Any image that spans across a two-page spread will be split at the page edge. So here is a two-page spread in Q. I have placed a 4pt line between the pages.

And here is the PDF I made with the spread side-by-side.

Depending upon the binding style, there is nothing to do as the imposition software will do what is required for page creep in the signatures if it is a stitched book. So too with a perfect binding, stapled (like for a magazine, etc), but depending upon the print service, if a clear area is required (like for many POD book establishments) then further action would be needed to have a blank area at the binding.

Okay, thanks. I think I got it. I am not sure... I guess what I try to find out is that is it possible to get bleed between the pages. Like when I print a bigger document in smaller pieces but have overlaps. I try to figure out that is it possible.

Like this, maybe with asymmetrical bleeds:

I have to really check this out, maybe I have missunderstood myself, ha haa! :D

Hah, yes trying something like this would reveal what happens...

Here's another image. Again, a 4pt line was centered between the two-page spread with the crossover image. So the answer is, yes it works fine. As Q should, the line is repeated on both halves of the spread and the bleed is properly present.

Thank you! OMG :D Thank you very much.
To be honest, I really do not understand what was so difficult for me to understand with this - all these years. Thank you very, very much.
