How to customize the margins of a document in Google Docs


Let s see how we can customize and manage the default margins in any Google Docs document

There are many programs that work as text editors , but the truth is that most users always use them in general terms, either because of their compatibility, functionality , or simplicity.

For somewhat more advanced jobs that need more than what Notepad that is integrated into Windows, most take advantage of proposals such as Microsoft Word , Notepad ++ or Google Docs, which is precisely the latter of which We are going to talk to you in these lines. Well, one of the elements that are most taken into account in this type of applications, are the customization capabilities offered to its users .

That is why we we are going to talk about the management and personalization of the margins with which we come across the mentioned Docs , an element that is usually common in most of the programs of this type. Say that these are the blank space surrounding the text of the document and that they appear on all four sides: upper, lower, left and right . Although these margins that are predefined by default are valid for most occasions, sometimes we will have to customize them, let's see how.

It should be mentioned that the control of Margins of a document is a very simple process that we can carry out in a few seconds to adapt to our needs, either from the rule we see on the screen, or from the bar of menus . Keep in mind however that changing them affects all the pages of the same document, since you cannot change the margins of a separate page .

Customize the margins of a document in Google Docs

Thus, after opening the text file in question, we observe the rules located at the top and left of the document, where the first refers to the left and right margins, while the other controls the upper and lower. At the same time, the gray area of ​​the rule indicates what is the current margin defined.

Therefore, this is a section that we can adjust depending on our needs, by clicking on the separator marked with a small blue arrow and dragging it along the available margin to adjust the fill.

Say that the default value of space is 2.54 cm, which corresponds to a inch . Thus, this is an adjustment that we can carry out for each of the sides that we want to adjust of the document. However, to be more accurate in case we have to generate a type of document somewhat more special in terms of size, this is something that we can also do from the program menus .

Thus, we will be able to set specific margins instead of dragging the above-mentioned separator of the rule. For this we access the option "File / Page Settings", where we will have the opportunity to manually enter the values ​​ that we want to assign to the margins of that document.
