I need a 3-inch top margin on the first page of my letter and a 1-inch top margin on subsequent pages. How can I do this?

This is so easy in Word but I have spent 2 hours trying to figure it out in Pages. To print on my boss' stationary I need a 3-inch margin on the first page and a 1-inch top margin on the subsequent pages. When I change the top margin on page 2 in Inspector, it changes the top margin on page 1 to 1-inch as well. In Word this is an intuitive, 2-step process.

Hi Dan,
Don't confuse "intuitive" with "what I'm used to."
Pages has "Document" margins, which apply to all pages of the document, and "Layout" margins, which may be set to provide additional margin space in a layout.
Start by setting the Document margins to 1" all around. This is the default setting for the (word processor) Blank templates. You can check it (and adjust it if necessary) in the Inspector. Open an Inspector window (View > Show Inspector). Choose the Document Inspector (first button).
Switch to the Layout Inspector (second button). Remember that you already have a 1 inch top margin, so to produce a 3 inch margin before the beginning of this layout, you'll need to set a 2 inch Layout margin "Before" the layout.
Hmmm... Depending what you're defining as 'steps' for the process in word, and considering that the document margins in Numbers are preset to 1" all around, this appears to be a 1-step process in Numbers:
Step 1: Set the "Before" Layout margin to 2 inches.
Done.
Regards,
Barry
