I'm using Libreoffice Writer. Is it possible to make 1-inch margins the global default?

Is there a global default used for new styles? When I change the Default Style (F11, Page category) and manually apply other styles, they still have 2cm-borders. Same when I make the first page title page, it switches to default 2cm border.

You need to configure a Writer file the way you like it with all styles, formats and other settings. Then save this file as a template and make this template your default template.

Having done so, Writer opens always this template by default.

Additionally you can set-up other templates which you can open by selecting them specifically.

That doesn't auto adjust the many page styles in the single style. Where are page substyles sourced from?

Am i the only one who thinks that the default margin is too big?
