The issue with Scrivener crashing when attempting to edit Script Settings is known and has been filed.
Can you please clarify what the issue is with your screenshot? It appears to have a half-inch margin on the left, which should combine with the default 1" compile margin to give you 1-1/2 inches on the left, which I believe is standard.
From the Scrivener Manual:
Ruler Conversions: When working with units in Scrivener, keep in mind that its ruler
starts at margin zero instead of paper zero. Since Scrivener is, by and large, not “aware”
of paper settings and page layout, it counts its ruler settings from the beginning of the
text on the left end of the page, not the beginning of the paper itself. This is in contrast
to many word processors, which start measuring at the paper left edge, and show the
print margin buffer in the display of the page.
Consequently, to convert most standard measurements to useful values here, you will
need to factor in the standard amount of print margin. For example, if the Scene Heading
is specified to begin at 1.5”, you will need to subtract 1” from that and input 0.5”
into Scrivener, since an additional inch will be added to the layout, once margins are
added to the page outside of Scrivener.
Also from the Manual:
The screenplay format that comes with Scrivener by default is based on a Hollywood
standard, but with half an inch added to the left indent of each element so that when you
print with a standard set-up of one inch margins, the left margin will actually start at oneand-
a-half inches, which is the standard to allow for three-hole binding. In other words
the end result will be accurate, even if the numbering by the editor’s ruler is slightly off.

It's an answer. It's not an official answer, but it's an answer.

Also i understand why it took so long to even notice it, obviously screenwriters are a minority inside the Scrivener community and this means we are not testing enough the Screenplay format, so how can they know which bugs are in there?
i'm just a passionate user that wants this program perfect, and sometimes i forget it requires time

You as with several of us writers are the bread and butter of their business, else why have it there in the first place. And I do feel its one that needs to be addressed.
The overall problem itself may may lie in the modules that are being isn't something so easily fixable as some think. Ever drive with a cracked windshield and watch it grow? Some see the ding but it just sits there as an annoyance. Its a distraction but when the fender is also falling off as well with a smoking engine, it's all about priority. I'm sure they'll get it ironed out as well.
