Hello all,
I used to have this problem in Word 2000 (couldn't fix it there, either), and it's now back for my new 2003 version:

When I change the page setup from Portrait to Landscape, then the right margin is at approx. 5 inches (~10cm). I am unable to move it at all, whether by just clicking and dragging in Print View or going back to Page Setup and resetting it to whatever measurement, it does not change....
So all my text (usually I use this setting when I have columns) is on the left side of the document and nothing on the right.

Did this ever happen to anyone else and how could I possibly fix it?

Thank you for your help

Did you try Edit->Select all and then changing the margin? Would that solve the problem?
