Issue with bleeds/margins/crop marks when exporting from InDesign

    I use CS6 (Windows version).

    I don't use Inside Bleed, but add a 3mm 'safe' space for non-printing with guide lines at the Master Pages. The first image below shows the page size to be 140 x 216 mm. When Adobe Reader opens the pdf, the properties shows 143 x 220 mm. 143 is correct because 140 + 3 = 143, but 220 is NOT because it should only be 219. I can see that the margins in the pdf looks like in InDesign, and the (hardcover) book prints just fine. You may try to leave the Inside Bleed to zero.
