Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Updating margins and columns, part of Introducing InDesign.
- In this movie, I'll show you how to modify…the margins and columns inside of a document.…I'm going to start by creating…yet another new document,…so I'll go to the File menu, choose New,…and then choose Document.…Or you can press control N,…or command N on the Mac.…I'm going to switch the intent to Web,…as we were doing before in a previous movie.…I'm going to turn on the Primary Text Frame.…A Page Size of 800 x 600 is just fine for starters,…which means we're going to end up…with a landscape orientation.…I've got two columns with a gutter of 18 pixels.…
You can see that my top and left margins…are different than the bottom and right margins.…I'm going to change the top margin…to 100 pixels, let's say,…just for the sake of demonstration,…and I'm going to change the left margin…to 100 pixels as well.…Make sure that the little link icon,…this chain, is turned off.…And then click Okay in order to…create that new document.…Now I'll go up to the File menu…and choose the Place command,…and I'll select my Word processor document,…
