To print crop marks (crop marks: Marks that show where a publication page will be trimmed. Crop marks show only when the page has been printed to a paper size that is larger than the page.), you must print on a paper size that is larger than the page size you have set for your publication. Commonly, this requires that you print to an imagesetter (imagesetter: A high resolution output device that prints to paper or film, or directly to a press plate. Publications that will be commercially printed are usually output from an imagesetter as the first step toward going to press.), which can define a variety of paper sizes.
- Check the paper size.
- On the File menu, click Print.
- Click Advanced Print Settings, and then click the Page Settings tab.
- Under Printer's marks, select Crop marks.
- Select any other options you want, and then click OK twice.
Note To turn off crop marks, clear the Crop marks check box.
