Reduce page borders in latex?

  1. Jan 5, 2012 #1
    Does anyone know how to reduce the size of the page borders in latex? This is so I can reduce the number of pages my essay covers.

    Thanks!

    The hard way is to painstakingly follow the diagrams in multiple LaTeX documents that describe page layout.

    There is a much easier way: Use the geometry package. For example, to have your text in a 6.5 inch by 8.75 inch block (1 inch horizontal margins, 1.25 inch vertical margins), use

    \RequirePackage[text={6.5in,8.75in},centering]{geometry}

    Note that that web page suggests using the geometry package.

    The geometry package seems awesome. Thanks for pointing that out!
