Getting an image ready to print and ran into a problem of cut marks/crop marks not appearing once the file is printed. Just to review the steps I took while working in InDesign to layout the image:
Step 1: Created a new document (11x17) Landscape
Step 2: Placed images and aligned them to the page
Step 3: Exported the file as a PDF and saved the file
Step 4: Clicked on Marks and Bleed in the Pop up Menu
Step 5: Checked Crop Marks under Marks and Bleed
Step 6: Exported Document.
After I took these steps and opened the PDF document to preview, the crop marks were visible but at the very corners of the page. Once I sent the file over to be printed, there were no crop marks visible at all. I went back to the file and there are also no crop marks visible while I am looking at the file. Curiously, I dragged out the "frame" to the outer corners of the page to see if they would appear and exported it as a PDF with crop marks again. No dice. Is there an easier way to put in crop marks? Did I miss a step?
