Not really. But I think, that you are talking about page formatting. There you can set the margins (and more).

Page formatting makes me think of "portrait" versus "landscape". Is this what you are after, Jørn Rudolph?

portrait vs landscape belongs also to the page format settings. It is one click to switch between them.

Yes. I guess you can call it "Portrait" and "Landscape"

You know : You have A4 "Normal" 210 cm wide.
Turn the paper around : 2917 cm wide. (I guess)

And to have more space on top and in button, then the "Standard"
The same in each side - More space left, more space, right. Then Standard settings.

(Or could me less space - Top, button, left, right.)

Well. Hope I wrote it correct.

I normal use Danish language .... "Glædelig Ål og Ørene er fine . Ælling Åse Øse" (Only some foolish words) ....

You can follow my advice even without any language problem: Click in the status bar of Writer on the third item (it should read "Standard" or similar in your language); this opens the page format settings.
