Description michaelfavia 2004-04-06 21:08:11 UTC
It is possible that i am just not able to find the option but i would appreciate the ability to collapse the margins in the page layout. When editing a normal US document (8.5x11) with normal margins on the top and bottom (1 inch) you end up wasting 2 out of every 11 scrollable inches with white space. I suggest adding a button that automatically collapses the margin white space visually while leaving it intact. A second way to activate the collapsing margin would be to double click on the "grey" space between two pages. MS word currently implements this functionality and before i switched found it quite useful. Optionally you can also remove the side margins which will allow for more docked panels such as the stylist. Thank you.

I have attached a screenshot of Word XP (2002) that should be a fairly clear indication that this indeed *is* a confirmed feature of MSOffice. There appears to be no obvious way to do the same in OpenOffice.org.
