On the TypeSet tab, select Format Options, and you can set it there.

I can not find in the Celtx program any verification of margin sizes. I'm guessing they are all standard regulation. However, I'm now entering a contest and the rules on margins are very specific. Do you know if these are what celtx uses?
Stage direction and shot headings
(also known as slug lines) have a margin of 1.7" on the
left and 1.1" on the right.
TWO BLANK LINES PRECEDE EACH SHOT HEADING.
Dialogue has a left margin of 2.7" and a right margin of 2.4".
Character names over dialogue have a left margin of 4.1".
Parenthetical direction within dialogue has a left margin of 3.4"
and a right margin of 3.1".
Scene transitions such as CUT TO: and FADE OUT. have a left margin of 6.0".
When a script is numbered in preproduction, the left number is placed
1.0" from the left edge of the page and the right scene number is placed 7.4" from the left edge of the page.
Top page margin is .5" (3 single lines) before the page number. A single blank line separates the page number from the body of the script, which begins with either a CONTINUED: or a new shot heading/slug line.
Bottom page margin is at least .5" (3 single lines) following the (CONTINUED) or the end of a scene.
Total page length is a maximum of 60 lines, including page number and CONTINUEDs
(but not including the 3 line margin at the top and bottom of the page).
