I'm going to also show Layout. You can see the body text here and you can really see that it starts at one inch from the left and there's one inch on the right and there's a full inch at the top and bottom.

Now switching the margins is really easy. All you need to do is go to the documents sidebar. So click document here. Then go to the document margin section here.

So, for instance, if I wanted a 2 inch margin on the left I could just change this number to 2. You can see everything shrinks on the left. Even the header and footer make way for this extra margin. So you can set these to whatever you want. So setting margins is actually pretty easy. Document size is a little different. Here you've got a printer and paper size at the top and you can select which printer you want. But, you know, it really doesn't matter which printer you use.

It's the paper type here that matters. Now notice that you can choose from a bunch of standard paper sizes like in the A4, or US letter, or US legal but you don't have the ability to actually set the numbers here.

Thank you for your feedback!

Adobe reader is installed and in My Applications, and on my dock.
