Hi all,

I am working on a rough draft of an article using Word (2007), in Draft mode, of course. But I can't see how to add side margin space to the draft mode without changing the actual margins within the formatted document. Does anyone know if this is possible?

I am wondering, when they changed the name from "Normal" to "Draft," did they not think that users would expect to find a genuine _writing_ tool? Perhaps this option is there and I just have not yet found it, but it seems clear to me that in _draft_ mode the focus should be on the text and not on page layout (especially page margins).

Grateful for any tips,
