LO Wrtiter has a different approach to page real estate management than M$ Word.

Il Writer, margin are no man's land forbidden to text flow. Only manually positioned objects, such as frames, can reside in there.

So, the question is: what is your page design? Draw a schema for your page. Set the margins which are "true" non-printing margins. Sketch the position of your header/footer and decide whether they have a fixed or adaptative height.

From your question, your consider the margins as defining the area where your text will be printed. With elementary arithmetic, you can compute the Writer-style margins dimensions then customise your page style in the Header or Footer tab. Spacing measures the white space between the header/footer and the text area. Size is the minimal height devoted to the header/footer and can made fixed if you uncheck the dynamic height check box.
