inDesign: how to exclude bleed area altogether when exporting to PDF
When exporting to PDF, I wish to eliminate entirely the bleed area. Is it possible to do so in inDesign?
Set your bleed settings to zero and make sure you have all printers marks turned off. The easiest way to do this is to choose the [High Quality Print] Preset in the PDF dialog box as a starting point. For most outputs that are not going to be commercially printed this preset should suffice anyway.
