Configure crop mark margins
Is it possible to configure the size of the margin that appears outside the crop marks when you have them enabled? I only seem to be able to change the margin of the content inside them.
Many thanks in advance.
Yes, try the prince-bleed
Many thanks for the speedy reply Mikeday,
I should have mentioned this before but what I need to configure is the automatic margin (possibly trim space, I'm not 100% on the terminology) that appears on the outside of the crop marks automatically, rather than the distance that the crop marks should extend in to my page contents (which is what I believe is the bleed).
Oh, right. I don't think we currently have a method of doing that; perhaps adding a "prince-trim" property would make sense?
A prince-trim property would be perfect Mike!
The prince-trim property has been added to Prince 6.0 rev 6, available now.
Would it be possible to make prince-trim TRBL instead of vertical/horizontal? Some publishers need to fix the trim on a certain side, regardless of the printed area on a physical paper.
This also might come close to addressing crop marks with margin-inside/outside pages. Where cropping a "page" in a larger physical sheet the crop marks would shift depending on left or right facing pages.
Sounds like a logical extension to the trim property, we'll take a look at this.
