# [Tex/LaTex] Add bleed using geometry

geometrypaper-size

I'm using a5paper size with extreport and geometry. Could you please tell me how to add a bleed of 2mm and keep things as they are.

 \usepackage[a5paper,
%hmargin = {3cm, .8in},
left = 2.3cm,
bottom=2.5cm,
includefoot
%right = 1cm,
%width = 10.8cm,
%height = 17cm
]
{geometry}


You can set manually a papersize with the added 2mm each side, and then set the option layout=a5paper - that will be what you are working with after. Also you have to set layouthoffset and layoutvoffset to get the content centered on the page.

MWE:

\documentclass{article}
layout=a5paper,
layouthoffset=2mm,
layoutvoffset=2mm,
left    = 2.3cm,
bottom  = 2.5cm,
includefoot,
showframe
]
{geometry}
