Changing the Margins in Open Office Writer to be like MS Word & Other Changes

I was surprised by the few number of websites that show how to do this, because I’m sure it’s something every open office user runs into. This video describes how to edit the margins in Open Office so they match the margins in word. The video also shows how to make that change be the default behavior for writer, and I also go into some load/save preferences, hope you enjoy!

  1. you do this good, – explaining and showing – Maybe you also have some information on how to make two different settings with margins – one for left pages and one for right. When you print a booklet it need to be a little bit more margin towards the middle. The outer margins must have 1/8 inch less. So you need a template that contains left and right page settings.. Would appreciate…
