Do you want to know how to change margins in google docs, it’s quite easy. Follow the steps in this write-up.
You’ve got quite a bit of influence when it comes to how the text looks on a written sheet. The margin is the empty space between the contents of the text and the edges of the page. Docs’ default margins are 1 inch on either side of the page, but you may adjust the margins to meet the needs of your text.
How to Change Margins In Google Docs on Your Computer
Changing the margins in Google Docs on a machine may be the best way to make this change. Viewing a document on a widescreen will make it easier to navigate some of the functionality we’re going to describe here. There are two ways to change the margins in Google Docs:
How to change the margins in Google Docs using [Page Setup]
- Click the File tab on the menu bar.
- Select Page setup.
- Update the values in the text fields of Margins.
- You will set the margins you select as the default margins for new forward papers.
- Click OK.
Docs change the size of the margins and redistribute the material to suit automatically.
How to change the margins in Google Docs using the ruler
- If this is not already available, turn the ruler on by pressing “View” and then “Show ruler.”
- Let’s start off with the left margin. Place the mouse pointer somewhere over the gray zone (which shows the margin) at the top of the screen to the left of the ruler, so you can see the pointer shift to a two-way arrow.
- Click and drag the grey area to the right to make the margin bigger, or to the left to make it smaller.
- Notice that the end of the margin still has a small blue rectangle and a downward triangle. Both are the First Line Indent and the Left Indent, respectively. As the indent icons fly along the margin, you might want to place the indents as well. By default, the paper will have no idents (the text will be flush with all margins) so you might want to drag the First Line Indent to the right by about half an inch, or you might want a hanging indent.
- You should change the other margins—right, top, and bottom—in the same way. Drag the grey margin as needed. The top and bottom margins can be seen in the vertical ruler on the left side of the panel.
