    I created a template for a e-document format of paper width 5.5 by paper height of 8.5. The margins all around were .75 except for the top margin.
    Then I called it up and saved it as a word document or perhaps I had to save it as a rich text document. I don't think Word wanted to allow me to save it as a word document. I typed in my text. Great! I have something suitable for epublishing format.

    But to save a lot of paper in editing, I called it up and charged the margins in Page Setup. Fine. Except the right margin in print preview still is 5.5. That is obvious. I am unsure about the other margins. Why can't I change how the document looks and will print to 8-1/2 by 11 so I can write, edit, and then change it back to the epublish format?

    Plus, will I have trouble changeing the first line indents into tabs, which are required for e-publishing formatting?

    What is going on with documents based on templates and formatting changes?

    I don't quite understand what you're trying to do. You set the doc up to be statement size. Then you saved it as Rich text? Whatever for?

    And then you changed the margins, but it didn't change anything?

    Tell us:

    1. What was the paper size when you first set it up, and what was the paper size after saving as RTF?

    2. What were the margins before and after?
