Problem with bleed and cropmarks

Postby sarinoelu » 23 Jan 2016, 18:41

Hi all,

Apologies if this sounds daft but I am very new to all of this.

Basically I need to create a PDF catalogue (34 pages in total) starting from 18 TIF files which I created on Photoshop (16 spreads and 2 single pages).

All TIF files have a 3mm bleed on all sides which must NOT appear in the final PDF. Using QuarkXpress, I managed to create individual pages out of all spreads, so that now I am working with 34 single pages. I hope this makes sense.

I have been trying all day today but all I seem to get is a PDF with the bleed and crop marks on all pages, plus the filename and page number on the top left corner.

I know it's a pain, but could anyone please tell me what steps I should be following? I am on QuarkXPress 2015 v11.2.0.1 and I also have Acrobat Pro DC 2015.

Thanks a lot!

Sara

Go to File - Export - Layout as PDF.
A dialog box appears. Press the Options... button.
A new dialog box appears.
Choose your PDF Style, then go to Marks in the left pane. In the right pane choose in the drop-down list for Mode - Off.
Then go to Bleed in the left pane. In the right pane choose for Bleed Type - Page Items.
Press then OK, and again OK.

The resulting PDF file must have not any crop mark and no bleed.

Please look at the attached screen captures.
