I am aware that this is an old question but since I arrived here looking for answers myself I thought I might share my findings. The bleed can be added using the crop package. The way it works is that you define the page size you like for your final printed material as normal, e.g. using "a4paper" or "letter" in your documentclass command, or use geometry ...

The bioinfo class you are using provides the two options crop nocrop to specify whether you want the crop marks or not. To specify nocrop, i.e. no crop marks, change the first line to \documentclass[nocrop]{bioinfo} similarly, to enable the crop marks explicitly, use \documentclass[crop]{bioinfo}

You can draw arbitrary code on your pages, e.g.: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{pdfpages,tikz} \begin{document} \includepdf[ duplicatepages=4, nup=1x2, landscape, pagecommand={\thispagestyle{empty}% \tikz[overlay,remember picture] \draw[red,dashed,line width=10pt](current page.east)--(current page.west);} ]{example-image-...

You should add 10mm to both dimensions. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[ showframe, paperwidth=297mm, paperheight=210mm, margin=5mm, nohead, nofoot, nomarginpar, pdftex=false,dvips=false,vtex=false, ]{geometry} \usepackage[ width=307mm, height=220mm, center, pdftex, frame, noinfo ]{crop} \begin{document} This frame goes out ...

Here is a bit of a kludge. It involves the creation of 3 separate files: the main file with the actual content, a separate file that contains nothing but crop marks, and a wrapper file that uses the pdfpages package to overlay the crop marks on top of the content pages. For example: File content.tex \documentclass{article} \usepackage[papersize={5in,...

Just add option a4 to tell package crop to use paper a4 to show crop informations and the little book. Please see the following MWE \documentclass{scrbook} \KOMAoptions{% paper=128.5mm:198.4mm, %(5,06" x 7,91") %ziel BCOR=8mm,twoside, headinclude=false, footinclude=false, headings=normal, titlepage=true, DIV=9, %ziel kleines buch ...

Why not use the crop package to produce bleed marks, and then render multiple pages on a single larger page (4 in 1 shown below). \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \usepackage[cam,cross]{crop} \usepackage{pgfpages} \pgfpagesuselayout{4 on 1}[a4paper,border shrink=5mm] \newcounter{pn}\setcounter{pn}{1} \newcommand\page{\section{Page \thepn}\stepcounter{pn}\...

Here's a solution which does not require loading TikZ and uses pifont for the scissors ding-bat. \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \usepackage{geometry,pifont} \usepackage[calc]{picture} \usepackage{pdfpages} \begin{document} \includepdf [ pages={33-38}, nup=1x2, landscape, frame=false, picturecommand={% \put(0,.5\paperheight){\line(1,0){\...

There does not appear to be a way to show the various boxes as defined by the crop, trim, and bleed offset settings. Using page background layers, it is possible to visually depict the different regions according to the printshop's specifications. % Page Specifications (in inches, width x height) % Exported PDF: 11.875 x 12.000 % Page size: 11.75 x 11.75 % ...

There are a few steps to modify the crop marks: define a smaller cross, define a crop mode, and apply the newly defined mode. The basic definition of the cross can be found in the manual of the crop package (page 16). It is a picture environment with two lines that each have a point of origin (x,y), an orientation and a length. Here you need to adjust the ...

The following is a bit clumsy but the result seems to be ok. The idea is to use the definition of showcrop from the geometry source combined with a custom page coloring approach with a zero-width zero-height colored \vrule, the definition of which is copied from the crop package. When you draw the vrule before the geometry crop marks the color does not ...

You can try this (see also this open issue: https://github.com/pgf-tikz/pgf/issues/294): \documentclass[paper=155mm:230mm]{scrbook} \usepackage[frame,width=169.8truemm,height=247.4truemm,cam,pdftex,cross]{crop} \setlength{\voffset}{7.4mm} \setlength{\hoffset}{7.4mm} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{calc} \begin{document} \makeatletter \def\pgf@sys@pdf@mark@...

The clip rectangle limits the area painted by the image. It was originally intended just to split the image into two halves for odd and even pages, but in this case only the right half image is used (twice). Using the calc tikzlibrary one can offset the corners of the clip rectangles by 3mm in x and/or y. \documentclass[10pt,oneside]{report} % Draw-on ...
