    I have had flexi since 5.5 and have upgraded every step of the way...
    but never used the 6.0-7.x enough to be comfortable with it. Now I use it
    to set up .eps files for our Vcamm 300 and really miss being able to do a proper bleed cut- or am I missing something? Thanks Gene

    Just add a negative number in the contour cut box. This will act like an inline.

    Select your item. Go to effect>contour cut and use a negative offset.

    Thanks for the comments- when you do a bleed/contour in 5.7 (or even in the relatively primitive Omega for that matter) it actually increases the bleed area by however much you choose- if you do a negative contour in 7.6, you are reducing whatever border / outline / shadow that you are contouring. It just seems like a step backwards in what is a very comprehensive program.
