Setting the page margins in InDesign

Updated: Nov 12, 2020

There is much to be said on the optimal margins for a page in a book, but once you have determined what your margins are, setting them in InDesign is not so simple.

For quite some time, I would fiddle with the values until they were just so, but I decided that there must be a better way of doing this. To that end, I created a little excel spreadsheet that calculates the various values.

Below is a video explaining the problem and the solution using the spreadsheet.

If you want the spreadsheet mentioned in the video above or the new script that I have just written, email me and I’ll send it to you with compliments.

If you have a manuscript that needs typesetting then please drop us a line.

And finally, if you have any other solutions that work differently or better still, better than the above, then please leave in the comments selection below.
