In one of the word document, the margin for the paragraphs are varying page by page and some time paragraph to paragraph.

I have tried to adjust it using LEFT MARGIN & LEFT INDENT button appearing in RULER BAR.

After adjusting and saving when I opened the document in another PC the misalignment appeared again.

My Document Contains diagrams some some pages are in LANDSCAPE format.

How can I make sure a uniform margin for all content of the document excluding diagrams.

Hi teylyn,

Can you help me where can I find the paragraph style in the word application ?

When I adjust the settings is it going to affect the hyperlinks inserted in some of the sentences ?

Your diagrams should be behind text, right click the diagram "text wrapping" or something and set for behind text ,then you should re-align your document. you can press ctrl+a to chhose entire document then left ctrl +shift to align left and so forth ..

Thank you teylyn for letting me know my limitations.
I'm sorry if I offended you in any way. I'm quite sure you know a lot more to word than I do.
I also am quite sure that my suggested solution would work otherwise I wouldn't have proposed it.

And please don't tell me what to try or not try to do ,this is very unpolite of you ,your'e not my boss! Not that my boss can tell me what or what not to say or do!!

Be a pro ,and keep your thoughts to your self or to people who asked you about your thoughts ,And I am not one of them , Thank you!

aboo_s, the question is about different margins for different paragraphs. The method you suggest does nothing to aid that issue. And setting graphics to be behind text isn't either. It's simple, really. If you don't know the answer to a question, just move on.

Hi teylyn,

he link you have provided is not opening...

I am using your instruction "If you don't want that, edit the custom margins: click Page Layout > Margins > Custom Margins ... > set the Multiple pages dropdown to "normal" instead of "mirror margins" ....Looks good. Only issue when I select the paragraph and click " Normal " in the ribbon all are aligned to the general Left Margin but they loose Bold/UNDERLINE/LINESPACING...

The margin is too close to the LEFT Edge how can I change it bit towards Right..

In Landscape pages...I kept only pictures with a a heading below sayiong as "Figure XYZ : ..." etc...


And just observed that after each Landscape page the margin changes again...and even If I click Normal it never comes to normal ranges of previous text pages...

One more input that...when I created picture....I select it along with " Figure XYZ:...Line " then go to Page lAyout use "Custom Margin to make that selected part as Landscape ..is this action created any trouble ?
