Defining Layout Margins

In a word processing document, a layout margin is the space around columns in a layout.

To change the layout margin in a word processing document:


Click in a column.


Click Inspector in the toolbar, click the Layout button, and then click Layout.


To change the outside margins of the column(s), enter values in the Left and Right

fields under Layout Margins.


To specify the amount of space above and below the column(s), enter values in the

Before and After fields under Layout Margins.

The new margins can’t extend outside the page margins set for the document in the
Document inspector.
