Bleed and crop marks: adding book spine indications
« on: February 04, 2015, 07:52:06 pm »
Hi,
Thanks for providing bleed and crop marks in recent versions.

People often use Scribus to prepare book covers for publication. For that, you need to indicate the width of the spine; the total page width is twice the book's width, plus the spine. As shown in the attachment (a png made from the pdf), you can put indications in the part that's going to be cropped, but they should really go with the crop marks. As they have to be precise, best avoid having to edit the pdf.
