We should stick with PDF terminology.

TrimBox (once trimmed on the crop marks, the actual page format)
BleedBox (bleed zone)

Basically, TrimBox ignores totally the bleed and show you the page how it
will look when cut to final size. This is what you are looking for here.
That way, you’ll see the exact bleed effect.
