Setting Margins, Columns, and Guides in Adobe InDesign CS


3 of 4

Changing Margins and Defaults
Let's say you have now have your new document and you feel that you need to change the margins. You can still change them without having to open another new document. Just go to Layout > Margins and Columns... A new window named (guess what?) Margins and Columns will open up and you can then change your margins from there.

The measurements I have used here are arbitrary and, as Jacci said, you should not let strict formulas keep you from finding the right balance of margins. But you will find that once you got used to the rules and to how your jobs look by following them, you will then begin to understand where you can break the rules. It will become easier for you to judge.
