changing default margins in OO WP

How do you change the default page margins in the OpenOffice WP? I haven't found this in the manual.

In order to define the default properties of new
documents in you make use of
templates, the process is something like this:

- Create a new document, configure the margins, and other
default values you want for your template, styles etc.
- Use File/Template/Save and save the new template to disk.
- Now use File/Template/Organize, in that window select
your template from the list, right click and choose
default to use your template for new documents.

Best regards,
