The page border — the shadowed rectangle that appears in the Drawing Window — indicates the dimensions and orientation of the Drawing Page. Although displayed by default, you can hide the page border while you work. However, it's a good idea to display the frame again before printing to ensure that your drawing fits on the page.
A bleed is the extra bit of color, image or text that goes over the edge of the page so that after the printer cuts, binds, and trims it, there is no white space between the edges of your image and the edge of the paper. If you want a bleed, ensure that you draw your image so that it extends a few millimetres over the page borders. The bit extending over the borders is called the bleed, and CorelDRAW displays it with dotted lines along the page borders.
