Thanks Ian. I moved the text frames 2mm away from the bleeding tab frames (towards the inner side) and that did the trick.
Seems that the settings for opposite sides looks for free space outside of the frames left AND right, even though you are requesting the bars to be placed on the side farther from the page edge (and farther from the bleeding tabs frame). Moreover this space has to be of some value higher than the 3-4 mm I had available. Seems a bit odd to me, though, and should, if not changed in next version, at least be documented, as so many other things need to. Anyways, this proves how immensely helpful this list is. Thanks again. Bodvar Bjorgvinsson Supervisor Publishing, Air Atlanta Icelandic.
