I haven't had to do this for several years, but back in 2011, this worked:
To get margins around a text box, go to Properties, give the line a
color of Black, and a width of either one or two points. Then go to
Shape. Select Use Contour Line and Edit. Check Edit Contour Line and
click on the left-hand box for the bottom row. Set the number of points
you want around the box, click on End Editing and exit Properties.
To get margins inside a text box, go to Properties, Text and open the
Columns drop down. Move the right/left margins up from 0 points, as needed.
