Thanks a lot for this template. This is exactly what I need.

I try to understand it in order to adapt it to the requirements of my
print shop which only needs a bleed of 1mm.

I hope that I understand it right:

Page 1,2,3 and 6 are 100mm

Page 4 and 5 are 97mm as these are the pages that are folded to the inside.

The measure "shortfold" (3mm) reduces the 100mm page to 97mm. Right?

The pageshift thing is beyond my horizon so I won't comment on this.

You adjust the backspace of the pages with multiples of the measure
"big". Right?

As you can see in my example I use layers on page 2-4 to have bleeding
images on the top of the page. This works more or less.

But as you can see there are blank white spaces between the images of
page 2-4. Maybe I can adjust this by using absolut measures like 100mm
or 97mm in the layers.

I have to adjust the layout of pages 2-4 so that the text starts below
the images.

An now here is my question. Is there a value I can simply change to have
a pdf with only 1mm bleed?

Only adjusting the papersize A4-flyer to 299mm/212mm does not work of
