Hi. Why are there margin errors on many of the documents I open in Pages? Even documents from other Pages users aren't viewed properly. Often images or text are pushed onto another page. The page attributes are already set to A4.

MacBook, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Can you please be more specific about what versions of software and under what circumstances this happens.


    Is there any font substitution or are you talking about opening Word .doc files?

    That is a Word .doc and yes the way Pages generates the paragraph borders is different.


    In Word for example you can have a border to just one side which is not possible in Pages except for above and below.


    That would account for the difference in, particularly vertical, layout.
