ENHANCEMENT UI: Synchronize checkbox for page margins
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Format -> Page Style -> Border tab -> notice the synchronize checkbox for padding
3. Go to page tab; look at page margins
Expected is an overstatement.. might be practical. as the page margins are the same by default.. so you might want to change them in tandem..

I think, that such checkbox is not needed. In most cases, when I need to change the margins, I need them different. Cases for different margins: Adding header or adding footer, space needed for binding, switching to mirrored layout, using marginal notes, using line numbers.

If you want to remove they margins; or if you want to change page margins in sync (even if different)
Not saying it should be turned on by default. However without telemetry rather hard to tell how (un)useful this would be.
The number of cases surely not massive if I have to estimate.
While my first thought was the same as Regina's the actual use is rather to have the same distance on all sides. See https://design.blog.documentfoundation.org/2017/09/26/default-margins-users-apply-libreoffice-writer/
Easy hack, maybe? There is already a example present in the UI
We discussed the topic in the design meeting and agree with the enhancement. A potential use case is to zero all value, and it's also good for consistency.
