Comparision LibO vs. Word

We have various methods in LibreOffice to add spacing: page margins and border
padding as well as paragraph indentation and padding. Today the rulers indicate
the page margins and you suggest to use the actual text position. Attached a
screenshot including how Microsoft deals with the topic. Used 1cm left margin
and 2cm padding for the page and 2cm indentation of first line plus 1cm padding
on the paragraph.

Big advantage would be that grips become aligned with the text. There is also a
difference for the ruler edges that are linked to the margins excluding the
padding currently.

I vote for this change. We loose the margin information (could introduce a
vertical line in the ruler for this) with the benefit of a more intuitive and
familiar UI.
