[Tex/LaTex] Change page margins in LyX


I use LyX 2.1, and I want to change the margins of a document as follows:

  • Top and bottom: 2.5
  • Right: 2
  • Left: 3

How can I do this?

Go to Document --> Settings --> Page Margins, uncheck the box at the top for Default margins, and modify the values to suit your needs.

The Inner and Outer margin correspond to left and right margins respectively for one-sided documents, such as the default article. For two-sided documents (e.g. book) the inner margin is that closest to the spine of the book, so the left margin on odd-numbered pages, and the right margin on even-numbered pages.
