Pages is part of Apple's iWork suite. It is a hybrid word processor and page layout application, making it ideal for desktop publishing and other layout-heavy documents. As you would expect from an application that emphasizes page layout, adjusting the margins is a simple, straightforward task.

Step 1

Open an existing document in Pages. If you are starting a new document, click the "File" menu, then select "New" for a blank document, or "New from Template Chooser" for a document based on a pre-existing template.

Step 2

Click the blue "Inspector" button on the top toolbar to open the document Inspector if it is not already open.

Step 3

Click the "Document" button in the Inspector window.

Step 4

Adjust the margins of your document in the Document Margins section of the Inspector window.

Step 5

Click the "View" menu at the top of the application screen, then select "Show Layout" to see the changes you have made.
