New Alignment Option: To Bleed
Being able to align to the bleed or distribute to bleeds would be helpful.
Came here while searching for this feature as it sure would make my life a lot easier!
For those curious about how to do this in the meantime; let's say you need to align a colored frame or photo to the bleed on a single page. This color/image will cover the entire left page in the spread.
- make this object the width of the page + bleed
- additionally make it the height of the page + bleed
- now set the align tool to "Align to Page"
- align the object to right edge & then to vertical center
Alter this method depending on your particular case. For single page spreads with bleed, just make the object frame the height/width of the page + bleed and align page to vertical center/horizontal center accordingly.

YES, Very needed! for example: align elements outside the crop marks for printing purposes.
Upvoting this - very needed!
It's quite disappointing to see this simple feature hasn't yet been added considering the current build we are on. Adobe, need to step their game up.
