Hi Jan,

"Bleed" is not supported yet.

There are two workarounds :
1. Leave your document as is and ask your printer to cut the job a 
little shorter.

If this is not possible:

2. Create a larger document, say 2 cm larger on each side as to have 
enough room to draw manually your crop marks. Select all elements 
from your actual document and paste them in the larger one. Position 
that in order to fit inside the crop marks and then enlarge any 
element that must "bleed" so they actually go over the edge of the 
page by 3 mm.
