trim box in pdfs
jo last edited by
Whenever I place a pdf in InDesign I get the error message:
'Cannot crop to trim box. Either the trim box is not defined, or is empty'.
Is there a way to include a trimbox in the pdfs saved from Drawbot or is this InDesign related?

I don’t have an answer or solution, but maybe there is a way to circumvent the error message.
When I place a Drawbot pdf in InDesign I don’t get an error. If I place a pdf with ‘Show Import Options’ checked, the Crop to: options is pre-selected to ‘Media’.
Maybe your selection is set to ‘Trim’, and the error message will disappear when you change that?

@monomonnik thanks, yes that is how i 'solved' it but when doing that with several files it gets a bit tedious. not a big deal but maybe it is can be easily stored during the export in drawbot.
tried it a long time ago... didnt got it to work for some reason, so support for trim and bleed is set on hold:
if you got any idea to get it to work with quartz pdf context, let me know
