When elements are in the fold the PDF is correct. The problem occurs when an
element (image, frame, whatever) begins at the inner edge of a page, but does
not continue onto the opposite page. Since my printer requires a 3 mm bleed at
all sides of a page (also the inner sides) the element must fill the bleed. The
part of the element which fills the bleed erronously also appears on the
opposite page in the PDF.
As an example: left page is empty, right page contains an image which shall
fill the whole page. Bleed is 3 mm on all sides. In the PDF the left page
contains 6 mm of the left side of the image from the right page, and 3 mm of
these are in the bleed zone. Correctly the left page should be empty. The
riǵht page is correct (image fills page plus bleed zone on all 4 sides),
