Thanks for the quick response. As a test I created a file with some
bleeds in it in indesign and printed it to PDF, and in the PDF viewer
the page appeared to have been made larger as well. I wonder if it
actually the /BleedBox properly...
I think that just making the page size bigger will solve my problems. I
also don't know if the printer will actually be looking for the bleedbox
or not. I'm afraid I'm a complete newbie when it comes to sending PDF's
to a printer.
Do you know off-hand of a preflight tool that can set the bleed box?
I, for one, would be interested in seeing a XEP extension to allow the
/BleedBox, etc. It seems like it would be a useful function for those of
us creating PDF's primarily for printed output. It would be pretty cool
if it could throw in registration too.
