Legacy-only feature to set left margin.

$LeftMargin and $RightMargin are legacy features for pre-v6 and allow the user to set margins for individual notes.

Below is for legacy reference only...

Margins are set in multiples of 9 pixels; a left margin of 4 is equivalent to 36 pixels (0.5" or about 12.5mm). The default may be set in the System Attribute Inspector.

When copying and pasting note text between TBX files with different margin settings, the pasted text takes the receiving note's margin settings but the note window must be closed and re-opened for this fact to be correctly displayed on screen. See also Pasting and Text Margins.

The left and right margins are always the same.
