Adjust Page Margins Position the cursor on the ruler at the current margin so it transforms into the double-headed vertical arrow. Drag it to increase or decrease the margin. The SectionMargins.Top and SectionMargins.Bottom properties.

Use notation:

To hide the ruler to get more space for your document, set the RulerOptions.Visibility to RichEditScrollbarVisibility.Hidden using the following notation.

By default, the ruler shows the DocumentUnit.Document (1/300 of an inch) measurement units. To change the ruler measurements, specify the control's measurement unit using the RichEditControl.Unit property. When a document is loaded in the RichEditControl, you can set the measurement unit with the Document.Unit property. The document setting is in effect until another document is loaded or a new document is created.
