I wrote a little "book" by using the Memoir class. I'd need to have no more than 35 chars per line and no more than 70 chars on a columns.

Is there some kind of settings to choose the best page layout based on the former requirements? If not, is there some other way to correctly change the default margins side? Thank you very much!

Are you asking for the Average number of characters in one line? –  Fran Sep 12 '12 at 22:58
    
Well, the requirements are strict, then I can't use the "book recommendations for typography". I'm asking how to choose my preferred margins setup using memoir class: for example, margin notes are not admitted by the requirements then I'd like to have symmetric margins on both odd and even pages, so that the typeblock is horizontally aligned to center. –  Alfatau Sep 13 '12 at 6:47

I don't think I understand the question. Max 35 characters per line I think I understand but "no more then 70 chars on a columns" just does not make sense to me. Sometimes it's not so easy for bear of very little brain. Maybe you would be so kind to explain it again for me? –  jonalv Sep 21 '12 at 14:29

@percusse: which is the duplicated question? the copy is my question and my comment? I'd like to close mine or incorporate the differences but it's not clear for me which is the copied question. Thank you in advance. –  Alfatau Sep 25 '12 at 17:57
