I am writing a document for which I need the margin to be exactly as follows: left, right, top and bottom text margin all equal to 1in, distance from bottom of the paper to page number equal to 0.75in (I don't have any footnote or header to set).
I tried to use the
fullpage package in LaTeX but it does not give me the 0.75in to the page number. Is there a way to force that? I tried to set manually the margins for a 8.5x11 paper but I am not succeeding.
I tried but after writing:
I get the error message
\paperwidth (0.0pt) too short.
I don't see the
\paperwidth is set to 0.0pt anywhere though..
Also it seems to me that depending on which machine I use to compile my
tex file, I get different margins, even when I set them up manually (without using geometry). Is it possible?
Using the geometry package things seem to work a bit better now (I changed machine and the problem with the paper width previously mentioned disappeared).
gives me without problem upper, right and left margin of 1in. But the lower margin is 1.2in and I can't change it to be 1in even by using
bottom=0.8in. I really don't see how this can happen. Maybe a problem with the spacing between lines? The class files I am using can be fund at http://www.math.ucla.edu/help/tex/uclathes/
I erased the margin settings of
uclath12.clo as the margin I need are different from the ones that this file gives. Thank you.
