I'm using the
memoir class to write my master thesis that should be printed on A4 paper. Altough I'm quite happy with the configuration I did for many aspects of the document, I'm still confused with the settings concerning the page size and the textblock size.
Now I just kepts this:
My main question is: what's the best way to configure the size of the textblock in
Should I use the
geometry package ? Is there a good resource where I can observe common settings ?
In addition I'm a bit confused what the effects of
a4paper really is: the margins are so large that it didn't seem to really consider it is a A4 paper size.
At the same time I'm wondering if 11pt is a good choice for a long document (100 - 150 pages) that will be read mainly from paper (I guess the font size is less important when you read from the screen).
