Margins & Other Issues

Attilio Ciochetto & Michelle Simmons
I am trying to create a document that has one inch margins all around but the first page has a three inch top margin for the letterhead paper.  I have gone through the Help in the program and searched the forums until my head is pounding.  Neither is helpful at all in my opinion.  In Microsoft Word I can go to the menu, set the margins and push a button to make it apply from the point of where the cursor is.  Your program is not that easy.  Please tell me how I can make a document that has a three inch top margin for the letterhead paper used on the first page with one inch margins all around for the rest of the pages.

I was taught that the standard margins are one inch all around for documents yet your program has a default of .79" margins all around.  I don't understand why you have that if the standard is one inch.  How can I change the default to be one inch all around each time I create a new document?

Why do I have to create a whole new document just to print an envelope with an address?  I just want to put the address in and have it print.  Instead, I put the address in then I have to create a whole new document BEFORE I can print the envelope.  In Microsoft Word it prints the envelope without first creating a whole new document.  Can OpenOffice work on this feature?

At times I have highlighted text to edit and inadvertently left the text highlighted when I print the document so all that is printed is the highlighted text.  I have never had this problem before using your program.  Can I turn this off?


Thank you for your help.

Michelle

Your first page must be a different page style; on this you set 3 inch margin to the top. Your remaining pages are to be a page style with 1 inch margins all around.

The USA is a very small part of the world; the 0.79 inch margins are the equivalent of 2cm margins often used elsewhere.  Personally I define my own margins, as I was taught that the bottom margin ought be larger than the side and top margins - there are actually very complex rules for calculating page margins - see any good text on page design.

In your print dialog, General tab (I think) uncheck Selection, and check All

Pay money to Microsoft, then you will love it.
Spend your labor and time into OpenOffice, then you will love it.
