Pages is a word processing application for Macintosh computers that allows users to incorporate design elements into their documents. Margins, the space between the edge of the page and your text, are not able to be adjusted directly from Pages' toolbar. However, you can adjust your top, bottom, left and right margins by using Pages' "Layout Inspector" menu. Make sure your margins are narrow enough to fit on your computer's printer and that you review your entire document before publishing it to ensure that the margins are to your liking.
Click "edit" from the menu at the top of your screen. Select "Writing Tools" from the menu that pops up, then click "Show Statistics."
Click the "Layout inspector" button from the menu that appears on your screen. The "Layout Inspector" button is represented by a page divided into blue squares at the top of the menu.
Adjust your top, bottom and side margins under the "Layout margins" section of the menu that pops up. The "Layout margins" section is on the bottom of the "Layout Inspector" menu.
