Default Lost top and Bottom margins

I have lost the top and bottom margins on new documents. I have tried
resetting using the Margins box and even though these have the correct values
in them, there are no top and bottom margins on the document. I must have
done something inadvertantly to overide the settings shown. Closing down and
restarting does not overcome the problem. How can I recover ?

Many Thanks

Are you able to adjust your margins when you click ViewRuler?

It sounds like the OP hid the spacing between pages. The fix is to put the
curson on the area where one page ends and the next begins (the narrow space
between them) and click there again. It's a toggle; click on, click off.
