Modify the left and right margins of pdf exports?

I was able to get my header and footer the way I wanted for the most part. I can't get the left and right margins to be the same. In my stylesheet, I tried: 

margin-left: 1.27cm;
margin-right: 1.27cm;

but that did not work. Any ideas on how to get these margins the same?

@page
{
margin-top: 30px;
margin-bottom: 70px;
margin-left: 1.27cm;
margin-right: 1.27cm;

@top-left
{
content: "Company Name.";
font-family: ConfluenceInstalledFont, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
color:#ffffff; 
font-size: 10pt;
font-weight:bold;
background-color:#5EBD70;
padding-left:50px;
}
@top-right

background-repeat:no-repeat;
background-position:left center;
}
}

What do you want to make the left and right match?  You're on the right track.  Set margin-left and margin-right values to adjust how much margin you want on the page.

Yes, I would like the left and right to match. Hmm, I did do that but setting those doesn't seem to be doing anything. 

 

 

try setting them to something very large and see if it's making any difference for you:

 

margin-left: 500px;

 

Check out Content Exporter for Confluence addon for easily setting up margins on the fly or using export profiles.  You can try out how it works online by exporting the documentation itself from its support site:
