Legacy-only feature to set left margin

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

Below is for legacy reference only...

As left and right margins are now the same and $RightMargin is ignored and retained only for legacy compatibility purposes.

Note that the margins are set in multiples of 9 pixels; a left margin of 4 is equivalent to 36 pixels (0.5" or about 12.5mm). Prior to v6.6.0, the default is set in the Text pane of the Preferences.

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.
