# Change distance between page number and bottom edge of page

I am trying to make my page numbers .75in from the bottom of the page. Currently they are about .5in or so.

I think \usepackage{fancyhdr} will work but what is the option to change this without changing anything else in the document?

The distances in LaTeX are measured from the top and the left of the page. One has to know the other details of your setup to help you. – egreg Apr 14 '12 at 9:23

\usepackage[margin=1in,footskip=.25in]{geometry} should do the job.

The OP specified that he/she didn't want to change anything else in the document. – lockstep Apr 14 '12 at 13:04

Add the following code by the end of your document header (just before \begin{document}). The calc package allows arithmetics with lengths and the \setlength just modifies \footskip to the desired value:

\usepackage{calc}
\setlength{\footskip}{\paperheight
