\leftmargin is the wrong length. That is used for lists. You either need to calculate it from \oddsidemargin, or use the macro from geometry: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[letterpaper,margin=1in,footskip=0.25in]{geometry} \newlength{\oneinch} \setlength{\oneinch}{1in} \begin{document} \the\dimexpr1in+\oddsidemargin\relax \makeatletter ...

My main suggestion is to take the factor 10^4 outside the matrix. That way, the width of first five columns can be made reduced dramatically, while the width of the final two columns doesn't increase much on net. Using a bmatrix* environment and reducing the value of the \arraycolsep helps too. \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article} \pagestyle{myheadings} ...

Let's create a bunch of random text: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[margin=15mm,paper=a6paper]{geometry} \usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document} \sloppy\lipsum[1-50] \end{document} We'll call this work-of-art lipsum50.pdf. It consist of 25 pages of pure awesomeness, all of which is laid out on A6 paper with a 15mm margin. This should replicate your ...

While Christian offers a better solution, you can start with \documentclass{article} \usepackage[most]{tcolorbox} \usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document} \begin{tcolorbox}[ sharp corners, boxrule=2mm, notitle, colback=white, colframe=blue, coltitle=white, fonttitle=\bfseries] This is a \textbf{tcolorbox}. \tcbsubtitle[before ...

The macro \centerline comes from Plain TeX and its behavior is exactly what you see: it centers without wrapping text and without respecting the margin. The macro is not supported in LaTeX; it exists just for historical reasons. If one knows how to properly use it, well; otherwise, it's better to leave it alone. Perhaps you are looking for \begin{center} ...

Content can be added during page ship-out using eso-pic. The following minimal example adds a 1cm rule as required for 5 pages starting from some specific place inside the document: \documentclass[twoside]{article} \usepackage{eso-pic} \newcounter{blackbar} \usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document} \lipsum[1-50] \AddToShipoutPictureBG{% Add content to ...

This solution uses geometry to get more sensible page margins, booktabs for nicer rules, makecell to rotate some headers and ensure consistent formatting. As it is, I think the information could be presented much more usefully and concisely. Perhaps not all figures are 1 in your real data, but that is likely to affect the layout of the table, too, unless ...

The default of some (or many) classes is twoside, i.e. changing the margins for verso and recto pages (alternating). Most of those classes provide a oneside option too, which switches this feature off! amsart article book memoir have twoside by default, whereas report is oneside by default. \documentclass[oneside]{amsart} \usepackage{showframe} ...

The problem is in your usage of \quotation. The macro \quotation exists, but it should never be used in the document body; it should only be used in definitions of new environments. The right form is \begin{quotation} The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network [...] and smart cities.~\cite{Wikipedia_IoT} \end{quotation} Try it and your problems will ...

Here is a solution using siunitx and ncccmath for its \medmath command, which reduces the size of \displaystyle by about 20 %: \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article} \pagestyle{myheadings} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} %code \usepackage{uarial} % for \renewcommand{\familydefault}{\sfdefault} %arial font \usepackage[brazilian]{babel} ...

An answer to the first version of the question. Class standalone \documentclass{standalone} \begin{document} lorem ipsum \end{document} Full page: Settings the margins to zero \usepackage[margin=0pt]{geometry} Cropping the PDF file Or the PDF file can be post-processed with pdfcrop to remove the outer margins.

The following may be what you want. \pagestyle{myheadings} % Select a suitable page style \usepackage{geometry} % Set page geometry parameters \geometry{a4paper,includehead,showframe, % omit 'showframe' option in real document hmargin={4cm,2.5cm},vmargin={2cm,2.5cm}} \addtolength{\topmargin}{-\headheight} \addtolength{\textheight}{\headheight} ...

Use enumitem with an appropriate leftmargin: \documentclass{llncs} \usepackage{enumitem} \begin{document} Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. ...

One solution is with the enumitem package, using the [align=left] argument. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry} \usepackage{enumitem} \usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document} \lipsum[1] \begin{enumerate}[align=left] \item[Long Test 1:] \lipsum[1] \item[Long Test 2:] \lipsum[1] \end{enumerate} \end{document}

Not a beamercolorbox but a tcolorbox: \documentclass{beamer} \usepackage[most]{tcolorbox} \begin{document} \begin{frame} \begin{tcolorbox}[extrude left by=1cm, extrude right by=1cm] text \end{tcolorbox} \end{frame} \end{document}

This does not look really nice -- it's hard to read, but setting margin=0.5in generates small margins. I don't recommend this. \documentclass[a4paper]{book} \usepackage[margin=0.5in,nomarginpar]{geometry} \usepackage{blindtext} \begin{document} \blindtext[10] \end{document}

You could test for the page size using \ifdim\paperheidht=297mm \textheight=9.21in\fi% note the space where (from article.cls) \DeclareOption{a4paper} {\setlength\paperheight {297mm}% \setlength\paperwidth {210mm}} \DeclareOption{a5paper} {\setlength\paperheight {210mm}% \setlength\paperwidth {148mm}} \DeclareOption{b5paper} ...

If hyphenation is allowed, please compare corrected and uncorrected paragraph. The \-'s are the places, where hyphenation is allowed. \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article} \usepackage[spanish,es-noshorthands]{babel} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{mathptmx} \usepackage[title]{appendix} \usepackage{pdflscape} ...

Although not a direct answer to your question because your layout will be recalculated, next time you may want to have a look at the bcor option of the Koma-script classes (e.g. scrbook). This option was specifically designed to add a binding correction like you seem to want.

Some suggestions: Never use \resizebox for tables -- unless you want to risk creating major font size changes between the text and table portions of your document and from one table to the next. Instead, provide a bit more structure to the table headers, e.g., through well-chosen line breaks. That way, the overall width of the table won't exceed ...

I had to make a few substitutions to get it to run on my system. First, your matrix equation was too wide for even landscape, so I broke it into two lines. Second, if you want the rotated box to be at the bottom left, you need to add \vspace*{\fill) before \rotatebox. (BTW, \vspace*{fill} does nothing inside a normal minipage.) Finally, I added a \fbox ...

If there should be nothing else than a splitted background, this can be done with tcolorbox package quite easily. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{blindtext} \usepackage{xcolor} \usepackage{geometry} \usepackage[most]{tcolorbox} \geometry{margin=0pt} \newtcolorbox{bgbox}[1][]{nobeforeafter,leftright skip=0pt,boxrule=0pt,enhanced jigsaw,sharp ...

If you know what your default font size is (usually \normalsize), then just reset it after the TOC is over. \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{report} \usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amsthm,latexsym} \textwidth 16.5cm \oddsidemargin 0cm \evensidemargin 0cm \textheight 24cm \topmargin -2cm \parskip 0cm \parindent 1cm \usepackage{tipa} \newcounter{test} ...

You can use the tocloft package. Here you can find the documentation for this package. If you include \usepackage{tocloft} \renewcommand\cftchapfont{\LARGE\bfseries} \renewcommand\cftsecfont{\LARGE} \renewcommand\cftchappagefont{\LARGE\bfseries} \renewcommand\cftsecpagefont{\LARGE} you can change the font size.

It's wrong to use center to begin with. In the following example I used the PDF for another answer; in the second page I added the same heading, in order to see that they're typeset in the same way. \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[brazilian]{babel} ...
