First of all: This is my first attempt using to the KOMA-classes.

It seems to me that the binding correction is not taken into account in what I am trying right now. If I understand typearea right, the following example should have a very tight outer margin.

\documentclass[10pt,twoside]{scrreprt}

\KOMAoptions{BCOR=5cm,paper=18cm:19cm,pagesize}
\areaset{12cm}{16cm}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\recalctypearea

\begin{document}
  \lipsum[1-10]
\end{document}

However, this looks exactly the same as when I remove the BCOR.

How do I get my PDF to be the size of the paper on which the text should be printed (so with BCOR included)? I don't mind that on-screen the inner margins will look out of proportion.

It works if you apply the BCOR option after \areaset.

\documentclass[10pt,twoside]{scrreprt}

\areaset{12cm}{16cm}
\KOMAoptions{BCOR=5cm,paper=18cm:19cm,pagesize}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\recalctypearea

\begin{document}
  \lipsum[1-10]
\end{document}
