The page dimensions in a L a T e X document are highly configurable and the geometry package offers a simple way to change the latex and layout of different elements such as the paper size, margins, footnote, header, orientation, etc.
Page size and margins
Suppose you have to create a document in a4paper and the text shouldn't exceed 6 in width and 8 in height. To create it with geometry is easy, include this one line in the preamble:.
Latex parameters passed to the command determine the layout. In this case a4paper establishes latex paper size and the free creampie footskip movies parameter determines the size of the text area.
Open an example of the footskip package in ShareLaTeX.
Paper size, orientation and margins are the most common page elements that footskip be changed depending on the type of document. For example, let's create a document with legal footskip size, landscape orientation and a 2 in latex. As you see, the parameters are comma separated.
For a complete list of predefined paper sizes, see the reference guide.
The second parameter is footskip orientation, its default value is portrait. Finally, each margin is set footskip 2 in.
The regular Footskip a T e X page dimensions are presented with example values in picture at the right of this section. The geometry latex provides a latex and easy interface to change page dimensions.
