    Changing margins on master pages and applying

    AlyMcF1 Level 1

      Hi, I would like to adjust the margins in my master pages and apply them to the rest of the document. My trouble is with doing the former…when I try to drag the margins over on the master pages (InDesign CS5 by the way) it doesn't change the margin guides, but it does create a dotted line border. I've got this dotted line thing applied now to the pages I want it applied to, and the text appears to flow within the dotted lines, but just for a sanity check…is this really how I'm supposed to do it? It just seems odd that I can't bring up a dialog of some kind allowing me to type in exact figures, and it seems odd to me that my margin guides stay put and I just get these dotted lines instead.
