Setting Page Margins in Latex

  • Simply use the fullpage package for somewhat standardized smaller margins (around an inch):

\usepackage{fullpage}

For an even greater effect give it the cm option (around 1.5cm):

\usepackage[cm]{fullpage}

  • Use the a4wide package for a page with A4 document size with smaller margins.
  • Use the geometry package. This package allows you to specify the 4 margins without needing to remember the particular page dimensions commands. You can enter the measures in centimeters and inches as well. Use cm for centimeters and in for inches after each value (e.g: 1.0in or 2.54cm). Note that by default (i.e. without any options) this package already reduces the margins, so for a ‘standard layout’ you may not need to specify anything. These values are relative to the edge of paper (0in) and go inward it. It may be implemented as follows:

\usepackage[top=tlength, bottom=blength, left=llength, right=rlength]{geometry}
