# Specifying margin width manually

I'm trying to write my CV in LaTeX. I'm using a template which I got on-line. But the margins are huge. I need the top and bottom margin to be only 1 inch. The LaTeX code is:

\documentclass[a4paper, 10pt]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{soul}
\usepackage{scrpage2}
\usepackage{titlesec}
\usepackage{marvosym}
\usepackage{tabularx,colortbl}
\usepackage{xcolor}
%\usepackage{varwidth}
\titleformat{\section}{\large\scshape\raggedright}{}{0em}{}[\titlerule]
% add the symbols for email and phone contact data
\cofoot{\so{Liefdestraat, 7 - 1234LI, Amsterdam, Nederland}\\
\so{ {\Large\Letter} jeff@gmail.com\ {\Large\Telefon} +31 (0)6 12345678}}
\begin{document}

have you looked at the geometry package? –  cmhughes Apr 6 '12 at 9:39

While KOMA-Script classes recommend using the typearea package, one can still benefit from geometry:

\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}


will set one inch margins on all four sides.

fwiw, moderncv is a class in its own right, and has nothing to do with the koma-script bundle –  wasteofspace Apr 6 '12 at 10:39
@wasteofspace I've removed the tag. –  egreg Apr 6 '12 at 10:40
