    The Margins gallery appears. The Normal margin, which is selected by default, sets one inch margins on each side of the page.

  3. To select another page margin, click any of the other options in the Margins gallery. If none of the preset margins are what you want, choose Custom Margins to create custom margins.

Note:  If your document contains multiple sections, the new margin type will only be applied to the current section. Section breaks are added using the Word desktop application. To learn more, see Add section breaks in Word 2013 or Add section breaks in Word for Mac 2011.
