Page Margins

Change the default margins, i.e. the blank space between the left, right, top and bottom page edges and the paragraph text, by clicking the Margins icon Margins icon and selecting one of the available presets: Normal, US Normal, Narrow, Moderate, Wide.

Custom Margins

Gutter position is used to set up additional space on the left side of the document or at its top. The Gutter option is helpful to make sure that bookbinding does not cover the text. In the Margins enter the required gutter position into the entry fields and choose where it should be placed in.

Note: the Gutter position cannot be used when the Mirror margins option is checked.

In the Multiple pages drop-down menu, choose the Mirror margins option to set up facing pages for double-sided documents. With this option checked, Left and Right margins turn into Inside and Outside margins respectively.

In Orientation drop-down menu choose from Portrait and Landscape options.

All applied changes to the document will be displayed in the Preview window.

When you finish, click OK. The custom margins will be applied to the current document and the Last Custom option with the specified parameters will appear in the Margins icon Margins list so that you will be able to apply them to other documents.

You can also change the margins manually by dragging the border between the grey and white areas on the rulers (the grey areas of the rulers indicate page margins):
