# LaTeX CV, change pagenumber position

I am preparing my CV in germany using the currvita Package. Unfortunally the pagenumbers on the bottom of the page are not really at the bottom of the page. There is something like 5 cm between the "real" bottom of the page and the number. My problem is that I don't know how to change it. I use this code

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}      % T1-encoded fonts: auch Wörter mit Umlauten trennen
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}

\usepackage{currvita}

\usepackage{relsize}
\usepackage{soul}
\usepackage{xspace}

\usepackage[final]{graphicx}  % um Graphiken einzubinden
\usepackage{picins} %fuer bild einfuegen

\begin{document}
\parpic[rs]{\includegraphics[width=3cm]{ild.jpg}}
\begin{cv}{Lebenslauf}
\begin{cvlist}{Persönliche Daten}
\item xxx
\item Tel.:~+xxx\\

\end{cvlist}

\begin{cvlist}{Universität}

Please ignore the wrong position of the xxs. What matters is the pagenumber and the position and (normally) this example should work

Welcome to TeX.sx! Usually, we don't put a greeting or a "thank you" in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Upvoting is the preferred way here to say "thank you" to users who helped you. –  Kurt Feb 4 '13 at 17:11
Did you try to change value of \textheight? –  Eddy_Em Feb 4 '13 at 17:14
Can you please complete your given code snippet to an complete minimal working example (MWE) so that we can compile your MWE on our computers and check the result? –  Kurt Feb 4 '13 at 22:10

The position of the pagenumber comes from the used KOMA-Script class scrartcl which chooses a typographical very good typing area. In the documentation of KOMA-Script you can read this. I gave you the link to the German documentation, as you seems to be a German. In chapter "Satzspiegelberechnung mit typearea.sty" you can read how to change the type setting area with KOMA-Script. On page 34, table 2.1 you can read the used margins used with the document class option div, for example div=15.

Add the needed value in your MWE and try again, for example with:

\documentclass[%
ngerman       % neue deutsche Rechtschreibung
,fontsize=11pt % Schriftgröße des Massentextes
,paper=a4      % Din A4, Voreinstellung
,DIV=15        % Berechnung des Satzspiegels, siehe Dokumentation Seite 34, Tabelle 2.1
]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{showframe} % shows the used typing area and margins for testing


Package showframe shows you your used margin with black lines on the paper. Comment it out for printing the final CV.

BTW: in your given MWE is a \end{itemize} missing. Use image example-image-a.jpg from the package MWE to make your MWE compiliable for all (you must have installed package MWE on your computer (very useful I think) but must not load it.

PS: Do you know package moderncv? I used it to build my own cv with it.
