I am running MS Office 365 on a Windows 10 computer.  I converted an old PDF file into Word format, and subsequently reformatted and edited the document extensively.  I checked all the formatting marks, and eliminated everything other than paragraph marks (e.g. section breaks, etc.).  Yet, when I try to change the margins on the document I get the following error message that does not allow me to use normal margins (I'm trying to get 1" top & bottom with .7" left & right):

Word formatting error
Can you please advise how I can get rid of this restriction?  I am also attaching the problem document if you want to check it out.

Thanks,

Phil

Go to the Layout Tab in the Ribbon, and open Page set up. Adjust the Margins inward.

Make sure your Style choice is Normal

Thank you, John.  I had tried the "Normal" style to no effect.  Then I tried changing the margins through the normal Layout options to no effect.  What finally worked was selecting one of the pre-set margin options under "Layout", which seems to have fixed the hiccup ... I can now adjust them normally.  Thanks!
