    Word 2003 indent problem.
    Link to the Word 2003 problem image.
    Ever since I installed Word 2003, the margins of pages have been huge.
    I tried resizing them to my likings, but I couldn't get a perfect fit (The standard default that I'm so used to).
    Does anyone know the default or can give me a configuration to make them look normal again?
    I already tried making the settings default again and it didn't work. These margins are too big!

    Open Normal.Dot. Go to File>Page Setup and change the margins to what you want (margins, not indents. Indents have to do with paragraphs). Then save normal.dot. Any new blank docs you create will now have the new default margins.

    In the Page Setup dialog box there is a button at the bottom left conveniently marked "Default". Set up the page as you like it then click on that button.

    I clicked the default button, but the margins looked the same.
    What are your Page Setup > Margin options?

    I changed the 35mm to 30mm for the top and I think it looks fine..
    But is the default 30mm for top bottom right left for you guys?

    I'm an inches guy. I generally use a 1" all around margin. Microsoft defaults to 1" top and bottom and 1.25' left and right. One inch is 2.4cm so that's 24 mm.
