Top and bottom margin alignment - word document

Dear experts
I have attached a word document and pdf document.
The word document has multicoloured lines. I want to share this document with Goodnotes support so that they can adopt it into a template. I can then use this template in my good notes app (IOS). The basic idea of this template is to provide a set of four lines so that i can practice cursive writing.
I have the following challenge with this document:
Page titled Doc1 in the attached pdf document is the scanned image of word document printed. In the Doc 1 we can see top margin is much smaller than the bottom margin.
The help I need: can someone please change the settings in the word document in such a way that it closely resembles the page titled Doc 2 in the attached pdf document.
(Please ignore the message on third page in the pdf document.
Kindly delete page 2 in the word document. Kindly if anyone can please tell me how to delete the document.
Thank you

Hi Paul , thank you,

I have printed the document you have sent.
The footer margin is quite high than the header. It should be rather the other way around.

Do i need to make any changes to any document/printer set-up.

Kindly guide.

Here’s a handy shortcut for bringing up the Page Setup dialog: double-click in the vertical or horizontal ruler in Print Layout view.

If the vertical ruler is showing, you can also just click & drag the lower edge (at the white/grey boundary). If you need a bit more space, just drag down until your text or boxes fit on the page.

firstly, you are asking to change margins to English (INCHES) measurements, but your Word is set to Metric (CM) measurements... i can see this from your screenshots in Goodnotes-format-with-navigation.docx

please see this article: & post once you have changed this, i will answer the rest of your question once you have done this
