Settings you chose for the left and right margins, column spacings, or paragraph indents are too large for the page in some sections

There was a bug in Word up to Version 2003, I believe, and I suppose that is the entry the you are referring to.

Otherwise, the message has a real purpose. Can you say what you are doing, or perhaps post the document?

I found the solution. It is a word template problem.

If you explain the solution so that we can all understand it, you will be able to accept the explanation as the solution.

OK. Basically you have taken notice of the message and adjusted your document accordingly. That's never a bad idea.

So, I have switched to landscape view, set to A4 paper (that was not possible before in that portrate view and cosing that error 'Settings you chose for the left and right margins, column spacings, or paragraph indents are too large for the page in some sections') and make some changes by  the ruler and save. After I changed to portrait mode and set also some layout adjustments. So, here it is.
Somehow it stopped cosing that issue.
