bleed, trim area and type area, please advise? - Macromedia Freehand

Yes, you are correct. The bleed would be easier to figure out just by taking the extra area, 10mm (235-225=10, 180-170=10) and dividing it by two for the two sides it needed to split upon (left/right, top/bottom). Usually you see bleed being asked for as simply 5mm bleed.

    Just re-order the layers themselves in the layers palette. Put the
    "Guides" layer at the top.

    Default bleed, trim area and type area, please advise?

    Hi people I've got a question:

    I received the below specs from the printers for an advert.

    Bleed = 235 x 180mm
    Trim Area = 225 x 170mm
    Type Area = 200 x 145mm

    Basically i have drawn a rectangle for each with coresponding size. (just to
    test)

    I have made the Trim Area the page size.

    For the Type Area I used guides that sits on 200 x 145 and i will have to
    make sure all content stays within these guides?

    For the bleed i drew a (235x180) rectangle over the page and played with the
    bleed setting until it matched. --a bleed of 5 worked

    Is the above correct?

    Thanks!
    Manfred

    Thanks for the quick response, Rich.

    Another question... My guides seem to dissapear below my vector shapes. Is
    there any way to get them to show 'above' in the shapes/vectors order?

    Thanks!
