Let Crop Mark offset reflect Bleed size by default
When exporting a .pdf, I find myself correcting that value over and over.
In most cases we want the cropmarks not to overlap the bleed, because that would make the bleed useless.
e.g: I set Bleed to 3mm, but the Crop Mark offset stays 2,117mm
Please let InDesign copy the Bleed value to the Crop Mark Offset value automatically.

I completely agree. This really gets to me.
There are no circumstances whatsoever in which it is a good idea to have the crop marks inside the bleed. Not one. Not EVER.
It’s there when you print anything or export a PDF from InDesign, Illustrator, PhotoShop … and it should be an easy fix.
What I DON’T understand is why Adobe doesn’t set the defaults to stop this happening.
Why not make them the same value instead of having to set two values? Bleed = Crop Marks Offset.
