preferences are for future documents...
... document settings are for the current document...

does this solve your issue?

(and, wrote before, please open a thread for each question... line thickness has nothing to do with the text language...)

the language is mainly used for the hyphenation and for the text direction (iirc).

you cannot define two different languages in a paragraph style but:

- you can of course have different languages in one paragraph,
- by using the direct formatting or
- through character styles.

https://superuser.com/questions/235887/how-to-make-the-first-page-of-a-pdf-display-by-itself-and-the-succeeding-pages-d

seems to suggest that in acrobat reader you have to manually set the position for the first page in the document.

personally, i got the "right" layout in evince and a "wrong" one in mupdf (only one page at a time) and firefox (left "padded").

i haven't tried, but i'm pretty sure that evince shows the first page left when the setting is set that way.

Excuse me but i try to search something about...but nothing clear my doubts.

there is an option with the language.
is this setting dependent on the paragraph style? if yes, can't every paragraph style have 2 languages? or i every time select the text and apply ex:italian and english?

I  was starting to  think it could be the PDF reader. The default reader in my Windows 10 computer is Microsoft Edge.

So, I just installed Adobe Acrobat Reader and guess what, it views the pages just like Edge. The first page is on the left....see attachment.

This does not make sense to me. What reader are you using?

0/ please, in the future ask one question at a time... this help other people finding answers to their questions before even asking the question : - )

1/ those lines do not get printed and are not shown in preview mode. they're there to help you see where the margin is...

2/ in the text palette > column & text distances, you can set the the vertical alignment... (it does not work in every possible case, but it does in most of the sane cases.

3/ yes, with the "align and distribute" tool... but if you're doing that, you're probably working in a sub-optimal way...
