Description Peter Chynoweth 2015-03-19 22:54:07 UTC
I would like to set one margin - doesn't matter which one, could be Top or Bottom or Left or Right and then click a button called "Mirror Margins" and have that one margin setting mirrored in all the other margins. 

For example if I set the top margin to: 0.5" and click "Mirror Margins" then all the other margins: Bottom, Left and Right would be set to 0.5"

Yeah, that sort of symmetrical setting is pretty standard -> NEW.
Comment 2 Regina Henschel 2015-03-21 19:07:33 UTC
"mirror" is misleading in this context, because that is a special page layout. Borders have a checkbox labeled "Synchronize", I suggest to use that word here too.

Thanks, Regina. I was trying to remember where I saw that checkbox in LibO :)
Changed title.

I'm fine with the changed wording and title. It's the function not the description that is important,as long as the description is clear.
