    In the file Latex/Classes/PhDthesisPSnPDF.cls, change a4paper to b5paper in these lines:
    Code (Text):

    [color=#008000][b]\DeclareOption*[/b][/color][color=#008000]{[/color][color=#008000][b]\PassOptionsToClass[/b][/color][color=#008000]{[/color][color=#008000][b]\CurrentOption[/b][/color][color=#008000]}{[/color]book[color=#008000]}}[/color]
    [color=#008000][b]\ProcessOptions[/b][/color][color=#008000][b]\relax[/b][/color]
    [color=#008000][b]\ifx[/b][/color][color=#008000][b]\pdfoutput[/b][/color][color=#008000][b]\undefined[/b][/color]
       [color=#008000][b]\LoadClass[/b][/color][color=#7D9029][dvips, a4paper][/color][color=#008000]{[/color]book[color=#008000]}[/color]
    [color=#008000][b]\else[/b][/color]

    Hey Nina, I watched the template PhDtemplateLATEX.zip. For you can change the format b5 have to do this: Unzip the. Zip, unzipped the folder find a folder inside called "Latex", it will find another folder called "Classes", open the document that has named "PhDthesisPSnPDF" with a level editor (notepad) or you drive. You go to the line 34 and 36 and you switch to b5paper a4paper. Then in the same file you lines lines 158-164, there you can set the document margins. I save and then compile it. I hope that whether you're looking for. I would I understand?.

    Regards
