# Change margins on the first of \tableofcontents page only

I need to change a page bottom margin, but do that for the first page of ToC only. Sure thing the following does not work as it adjusts all pages of ToC:

``````{
% bottom margin must be bigger
\changepage{-35mm}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}
\tableofcontents
}
``````

So `\changepage` should be somehow "injected" into `\tableofcontens` to detect and apply to the first page only.

I need some special LaTeX magic. Please assist.

Update. \changepage may not be used with `\addtocontens`, but Stefan's suggestion helped:

``````\addtocontents{toc}{\protect\enlargethispage{-35mm}}
\clearpage
\tableofcontents
``````

I have another problem now (create a separate question?): i'm looking for some general approach, kind of "apply these change to the current page only; limit the scope they affect". Namely: i have to put such frame on the first ToC page, and such one on the rest of ToC pages. (I have frames as PDFs, so i just don't know how to ask LaTeX to place them in required order; tried `afterpage` and `wallpaper` packages.)

Har you thought about messing with the distance between items in the ToC? Usually they do not contain any shrink or stretch, adding that often helps of the ToC spills a few lines onto page two. –  daleif Jun 3 '11 at 11:06
With regard to your update, you should indeed ask a follow-up question. –  lockstep Jun 3 '11 at 12:23
@daeif If i got you right, it won't help as my ToC is 4 pages long ATM (: –  Maxim Vuets Jun 3 '11 at 13:16
then I do not understand your need to make the first page longer? I may end up looking odd in the over all design –  daleif Jun 3 '11 at 13:18
@daleif, i needed that in regard of different frames per ToC pages. Such (if you wish) strange requirements of my master's thesis. –  Maxim Vuets Jun 5 '11 at 5:10
You can use `\addtocontents` for this. `\enlargethispage` is another command you could use. For example:
``````\addtocontents{toc}{\protect\enlargethispage{35mm}}
