My mistake: I was using the "usual" copy, thus the "content pasting" was not
It's OK now.

I'm not sure what who mean by "bleed". Is "fond perdu" in french?
It is part of the settings my printer gave me. And I need it, especially as
I use colored backgrounds; in the test book I've made, I'd aligned the
colored frames with margins, and there is some white borders left on one
side of all the pages (only left side of all the even pages).
This time, I'm aligning the background with the physical page, including
"fond perdu" in order to avoid this white border.
