Page size and going potty

I am going nuts trying to get a new file to have the same page appearance as others. For some reason, no matter how often I check preferences (I set it for 3.17 and 2.54 i.e., standard A4 size) with the new document I cannot make the text go to the margin. Older project files are fine.

Also, when I set up preferences in colour, shouldn’t that translate to all projects?

Please help, I’m wasting time on the program when I want to write - unless this is my way of procrastinating!!

Sorry guys, I have found out how to fix the page appearance problem…it took a while, but I got there :slight_smile:
