Default increasing left coumn causes first column to become too narrow

The message is at least partly bogus, but the way around it is to go to
Format | Columns and click on the preset picture for One (even if you
already have just a single column), which will check the "Equal column
width" box and result in a correct column width. If possible, do this with
"Whole document" selected under "Apply to." Then click OK. You'll probably
notice that the column width shown changes.

I have tried to change the margins in a converted PDF file. No matter
I do, I keep getting this error message. Any suggestions?
