CellMargins

FilledSmallSquare CellMargins is an option for Cell which specifies the absolute margins in printer's points to leave around a cell.

FilledSmallSquare Possible settings are:

FilledSmallSquare The left margin gives the distance from the edge of the window to the left-hand side of the cell.

FilledSmallSquare The right margin gives the distance from the inside of the cell bracket to the right-hand side of the cell.

FilledSmallSquare The left and right margins can be set interactively in the front end using the Show Ruler ruler.

FilledSmallSquare The top and bottom margins determine the amount of space to leave above and below the cell.

FilledSmallSquare The margins go to the edge of any cell frame that is present.

FilledSmallSquare Cell dingbats are placed to the left of the left-hand side of the cell, and extend into the left cell margin.
