If you make a text frame that is crossing or touching with bleed line, it moves on the page when export to PDF file.


This is issue of InDesign CS5.5.

A text frame in master page and crossing or touching with bleed line, InDesign CS5.5 computes  its coordinate, if text frame applied "Inset Spacing section", InDesign CS5.5 must re-compute but not and then un-computed coordinate is used at drawing the text frame in the exported PDF file.

Repeatability conditions:

  • Text frame is in a master page.
  • Text frame is crossing or touching with bleed line.
  • Text frame is applied "Inset Spacing section"
  •  Marks and Bleeds / Bleed and Slug option is used.

Step to Reproduce:

  1. File / Document... /
  2. Go to A-Master
  3. Make a text frame and type any text
  4. Move the text frame to cross or touch with bleed line
  5. Choose Object / Text Frame Option /Inset Spacing section and Bottom is 3 mm
  6. Select "Top/Right" at the Vertical Justification
  7. File / Adobe PDF Presets / [PDF/X-4:2008(Japan)]...
  8. Do one from below at the Marks and Bleeds / Bleed and Slug

    (A)  Choose "Use Document Bleed Settings"

    (B) Set 3mm for all Bleed option (Top, Bottom, Inside, Outside)
  9. Export
