Smartstream crop marks.

Post by youngy4130 » Wed Apr 27, 2016 10:51 am

Hi Everyone

This might seem painfully obvious but for the life of me i can't get my impositions to put the crop marks in the correct place.

If I set up the configurator to 'Crop to' the Media box the crop marks always go outside this. If I set it to 'Crop to' the trim box they go in the right place but there is no bleed on my imposed file.

I've tried adjusting the bleed amount in the smartstream designer to 3mm and 0mm and I always get the same results.

Could anyone recommend bleed/crop settings that they use for smartstream and switch?

Thanks!

I use crop to bleedbox, then the crop marks are placed at trim box..

Only setting I could get it to work correctly with.

Hi

Thanks for your reply.

I've tried this but the crop marks then go on the bleed box rather than the trim I can't seem to get them to recognise the trim box through the switch configurator.

The imposition works perfectly when creating a job in InDesign.

Thanks.

Never mind a restart seems to have fixed it.

Thanks!

With the bleedbox setting I assume?

Glad it's fixed :)
