I have about a 50 page book photo and text that I'd like to make the margins smaller so that the text and other elements fill the page more completely. I highlighted the Master Pages in the Pages window, then changed the settings in Margin and Columns. The small icons in the Pages window blinked as if they were updating, but nothing at all seemed to change in my Layouts. There are 2 columns and they should have become wider and longer.
Even though the icons acted as if had refreshed, the number of pages didn't change, which they would have if the changes had taken effect. What may I be doing wrong?

Just re-apply the master pages to the document pages and the margins should change.
If there are nested master pages, do the same to them.
