Marc, this is the sort of thing that is controlled by Page Styles, and
Styles all reside inside of Templates. My recommendation would be to create
a Template for your brochure. Then set up the Page Style inside the
Template to have the kind of margin you want, save the Template with that
setting, and then use the Template each time you want to create another one.

I know that can sound a bit complicated, but I have a number of tutorials
on my site at that address all of these issue. I even
did a sample brochure there, though mine was a tri-fold, which by the sound
of it is not what you are looking for, but it may give you ideas.

Just a question re: printing a document in "brochure layout" found in the
"Print" menu (tab-> "Page Layout").

I am just trying to make the routine of publishing music concert programs
as easy for new office staff as possible (I am director for an early music
group). One way to print the concert programs in booklet format is to have
the office staff type up the concert program in Writer and at the point of
printing, choose the "brochure layout" option in the Printer window tab
"Page Layout". This method works perfectly and allows for any new person to
the music office to just step in and print concert programs in very few
steps that require practically no brochure layout knowledge -- extremely
user friendly to use.

My question is, when the printed brochure comes out, there is a lot of
wasted space at the top and bottom of the brochure pages. Is there a way to
make use of this space? ... For example, have the printed words start
higher up the page and also down the page?

I know that one could use Draw to make a brochure, but IMO, if the
"brochure layout" option were tweaked enough to take advantage of the free
space at the top/bottom of brochure pages, it would become an even more
useful tool for occasions when brochure printing is called from a Writer

Is this something that could be suggested as a bug or put on a wishlist?
