Gustavo Homem napisa?(a):
> Bleed is an extra area on document used to compensate for cutting
> For example look at this PDF:
> The page height is 307mm, which means A4 height + 1cm.
> This extra cm is not desired on a version for viewing but it is needed on a
> version for printing, because the document is printed over a white page, and
> any cutting imprecision might lead to a white stripe appearing where we
> should only see blue.
> So, to use bleed you must:
> Define a document page size which is larger than the final document. Use
> margins to delimit the "real" working area. Let the coloured elements on the
> edges of the document extend to the extra area outside the margins.
> In this way cutting imprecisions will not be noticed.
> In the above example bleed was only used on top and bottom, but depending on
> your printer you may or may not need to use it on the four sides.
> Best regards
Gustavo, I've just added your explanations to our wiki article on "Bleed
workarounds" (made by Louis a while ago).
