Text Editor For Mac Margins

I can tell when users upgrade to a new wide screen monitor because they ask how to set the margins in email. Composing an email on a wide screen with windows maximized is not the best experience because lines of text are very long. It's more comfortable to read and compose email when the text is only about 6 inches wide. Rather than resizing the window, users decide that moving the margin is the better idea and it's very easy to do but adjusting the margins using the ruler.

Text Editor For Mac Margins


When you adjust the right margin, you aren't making the page a specific width, you are indenting the right edge by a specific amount. If the page is 12 inches wide and you set the right margin to 6 inches, then you are left with 6 inches of space to type in. However, when the overall page width is 8 inches wide, you're left with just 2 inches when the margin is set to 6 inches, resulting in a narrow column of text in printouts or when the message is opened in a smaller window.

Outlook doesn't have an option to set the width of a message - it uses the full width of the message window and wraps text in the window as needed. Trying to force line lengths using margins or the Enter key to break lines only results in readability problems for the recipient. It's better to adjust the width of the compose window if you need to make the lines shorter and easier to read while composing messages.

The Left and Right Indentations should be set to zero. If you want to use indentation, keep it very small. Do not use indentation or margins to make line wrap on wide screen monitors while you are composing them; this will affect the margins and format on the message the recipient receives. Adjust the width of the compose message form instead.

The default Margin setting is 72 points or 1 inch (or the equivalent) for top, bottom, left and right margins. To check the settings, you need to open the Page Setup dialog. You can do this with a double click anywhere on the ruler, or in the gray area on the right edge of the ruler (near the red arrow on the right in the screenshots containing the ruler) After resetting the value to 1 inch (or the equivalent), click Set as Default.

This theme places a spiral notebook graphic down the left side of the email body overlapping the body by about 1/2" wide. The problem is when I compose a new email, the left margins are not offset by this, and stay at 0, which puts my text in the graphic. You would think each theme provided would adjust the margins automatically for its theme graphic. I have tried to change it manually, but I can't find the Layout tab so I can set the left margin.

I tried using the Paragraph Settings under the Format Text tab, but it will not save as default, even when I select "Set as Default". Setting the left indentation to 5" seems to work, though I noticed if you press the back button to delete text, it will still go back to the far left margin at 0. So the only true way I believe to fix this is to set the Layout margins, but I'm beginning to think Outlook doesn't have this option.

hello. i have office 365 and composing emails in outlook. in my old outlook 2010 for mac, the left margins had some wiggle room. now, in this version, they are practically flush to the left. i would like to have more space and set a default to indent. i know you can choose indent but i don't want to do that with every email. when i right click on paragraph and move the margin, and even click apply to all, it does not apply to all. the next email is the same . is there a fix here??? thanks sue

My difficulty is that when I send an email which looks in correct paragraph form (and I even shorten it some to allow for smaller screen readings) it is all over the place when the receiver reads it. One long line, then a line with 2 words, then a med. line of print, then next line 3 words. No consistency at all. How do I set my margins so that what I'm sending is the same format the receiver is reading it

You don't want to set any margins - you want it to free flow so it can adjust to the recipients screen. Only add paragraph breaks at the end of a paragraph, not after a specific # of characters. if you plan to do any kind of a fancy layout wih tables, you need to max sure they are free-flowing, not fixed widths.

Setting margins really will mess the view up for the recipient. This is because margins are set 'in from the right' , not page width/in from the left. If you compose on a larger screen with a 6" right margin, someone on a smaller monitor will have a 6" right margin - and possibly an inch or two for text.

If you make no changes to the default settings - just type and hit enter at the end of a paragraph, the email will wrap nicely in almost every email client. (There will be occasional line break problems if the message is converted to plain text, but that can't be avoided. )

You don't want to use margins with email. You can add a button for the ruler to the QAT and turn it on to see the margins or click on the expander in the paragraph group on the Format Text tab to access the paragraph settings.

Thanks and apologies for troubling you. I discovered the answer after posting my question. here is a margin command. Stat a new email and then: File \ Print \ Print Options \ Define Style \ Edit \ Paper \ and here you can set your margins \ OK \ close \ Cancel (ie cancel the print. That's it, and, lo and behold, next time you make an email it will print with our chosen margins.

Margins are not typically used in Email, so there isn't a margin command to load the dialog directly. if you need to set margins, show the ruler then click the gray square on the right end of the ruler.

Technically, email doesn't have margins - it wraps within the email Window - but you can set margins in the editor, you just have to keep them small, because of the way margins are calculated. If you need a specific message width, use a table (you can set table width in %, which can give you a narrow left and right margin)

Thank you! That works. It wasn't so much about the wrapping width for me, it was about the images in the email moving around because the wrapping was shifting based on the screen. So figure one is really nowhere near where it was before.Just re-sent myself the email with the text in a table and it was much better! Thank you!

Drafts supports themes to customize appearance, and light and dark modes. To access theme settings, open the Aa appearance settings screen from the bottom right of the editor, or visit File > Editor Preferences... (macOS).

Drafts offers support of inline syntax highlighting for a variety of markup languages, and can be extended by installing custom syntaxes. Syntax highlighting is saved per-draft, and editor settings are stored separately by syntax, so font sizes, margins, and other options can differ by syntax.

Typewriter scrolling locks the cursor position in the middle of screen when editing, so that moving to a new line move the text up keeping the cursor centered. This is sometimes desirable when typing longer passages.

The editor settings screen also offers fine-grained control over options for many editor related settings, controlling text behaviors, fonts, and sizings as well as the editing environment in general.

Once in a while, we can see on brochures that texts are displayed on page margins. Therefore, in case you too, want to add some texts which are useful but not quite relevant to document content, we here will offer you 3 varying methods for you to complete the task in Word.

2. You can directly modify the margin text whenever you need.When you make change on other document content, the margin text may get affected.Insert a Text Box1. The margin text is free from the effect of document modification.

When you create a presentation using Microsoft PowerPoint, you can add text, images and objects to slides to enhance them. The slideshows you develop may be projected on a screen for training or for a meeting, or viewed by individuals on their computers. PowerPoint presentations may be printed as well. Adjust the margins to ensure no text or images are cut off before printing a PowerPoint slide presentation.

Internal margins control the amount of blank space between the perimeter (edge) and the actual text within all three types of text containers:text boxes,text placeholders andshapes. Although these margins are similar tothe margins of pages in a word-processing document like Microsoft Word, there is a significant difference. Each text container has its ownindividual margins set, and you can have entirely different margins for one or more text containers, even if they reside on the same slide. In thistutorial, we will explore how to set and change these internal margins for text within a text container inPowerPoint 2011 for Mac.

Answer:Select the Layout tab in the toolbar at the top of the screen. Then in the Margins group, click on the Margin button. This will open a popup menu where you can select one of the preset margins or "Custom Margins".

A quick way to change the margins is to select the Layout tab in the toolbar at the top of the screen. Then in the Margins group, you will be able to view and change the Top, Bottom, Left, and Right margin values using the respective controls. Right now we have the Top margin highlighted which is currently set to 1.

The auto unit for margins is a powerful layout technique for pushing flex items to specific sides. For example, if buttons have a parent element using Flex, you can use auto margins to align those buttons to the same side of the parent element.

Thanks for putting this here.I had edited my userchrome.css to manually set a width and was wondering why it had changed even though the changelog (joplinapps [dot] org [slash] changelog) didn't say anything about editor changes.

After digging through the Github commit log, I found several changes to the markdown editor style and CodeMirror interface.This makes me wonder, is there a place where a more detailed changelog is available? Or is the Github commit log the only alternative? And if it's the latter, is there a reason against putting more details in the changelog?I think it could be effective for avoiding some redundant forum posts / Github issues.
