Margens aren't supported in the standerd RichEdit component, because they aren't supported in the underlying RichEdit window-component.

Can't you make use of a panel?

procedure SetMargin(VeryRich : TRichEdit; Indent : Integer);
Var
  R : TRect;
begin
  R := VeryRich.ClientRect;
  R.Left:=R.Left + Indent;
  R.Top:=R.Top + 2;
  R.Bottom:=R.Bottom - 2;
  R.Right:=R.Right - Indent;
  SendMessage(VeryRich.Handle, EM_SETRECT, 0, Longint(@R));
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  SetMargin(RichEdit1, 10);
end;

Lets say we have some text with the right margin set at a certain position. I want to be able to resize the form but have the text stopin the position it has been set at... so if I set the right margin at say 400 pixels.. I still wan 400 pixels if I increase the form size..
Is that clearer?
Thanks Viktor for your help.
