Make Crop Marks always outside the Bleed
People who don't understand bleed (and they are out there) leave the Marks Offset setting on default, which causes problems when they send their files out for printing.
There is absolutely no situation or circumstance in which it is a good idea to have the Crop Marks inside the Bleed. Not one. Not Ever.
So why do we have to adjust the Marks Offset when we change the Bleed ? Why is it not even offered as an option in the Preferences to set this automatically ?
It's not just when exporting a PDF, but also when Printing, from InDesign, Illustrator, PhotoShop ...
This should be easy to fix.

Having worked in prepress at print shops for many years I 100% agree with this request. Having crops within the bleed area completely defeats the purpose of the bleed area. There are rare occasions where I will intentionally use a crop offset less than the bleed, but I would happily forego that option to eliminate this problem.
