I searched the site for an answer (and waded through a few pages of Google results), to no avail. I suspect the reason may be that you just don't change margins this way in Word, you use paragraph formats instead.
My problem is that I have a closely-clustered series of continuous section breaks, each of which changes the left margin (and each of which has Same As Previous for a footer setting). Depending on where the page breaks occur in relation to these short sections, the footer margin for the affected page changes accordingly. Is it possible to change page margins without affecting the footer margins for those sections?
And while we're on the subject, when I view Headers and Footers in the midst of these breaks, the buttons to move me to the next and previous footers won't let me get to most of them (I believe the inaccessible ones are the ones that won't display on any page given the current page breaks). Is there an easy solution (i.e., easier than temporarily adding a bunch of dummy paragraphs to the body of the document to cause the footer you want to get at to be a "displaying" footer)?
