An option using TikZ and fancyhdr. Adjust the settings according to your needs: An image of a single page of the result: The code: \documentclass{book} \usepackage{fancyhdr} \usepackage{textcase} \usepackage{emptypage} \usepackage{tikz} \usepackage{lipsum} \newlength\ChapterShift \newlength\PageShift \newlength\StripeWd % the verticle shift for the ...

With fancyhdr, but without tikz: \documentclass{book} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage[ a5paper, % showframe, ]{geometry} \usepackage{fancyhdr} \usepackage{xcolor} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{picture} \usepackage{etoolbox} % Remove prefix "Chapter" and chapter number \makeatletter \patchcmd{\ps@fancy}{\@chapapp\ \thechapter. \ }{}% ...

It can be done, provided you use only onesided typesetting, or footnotes on left hand pages will appear as hanging from nowhere. \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage{etoolbox} \makeatletter \patchcmd\@footnotetext {\hsize\columnwidth} {\hsize\columnwidth\advance\hsize\marginparsep\advance\hsize\marginparwidth} {}{} ...

You have to use \setlength instead of \renewcommand and also \dimexpr\paperheight-1cm\relax for the second question : \documentclass{article} \usepackage[absolute]{textpos} \setlength{\textwidth}{17cm} % (*) \begin{document} \begin{textblock*}{3cm}(1cm,\dimexpr\paperheight-1cm\relax) XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX \end{textblock*} \end{document}

The \textwidth doesn't change: you have to use \linewidth when inside a list (which addmargin is); moreover you have to remember \noindent and @{} for removing the padding on the left and right. \documentclass{scrbook} \usepackage{tabularx} \usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document} \lipsum[2] \begin{addmargin}[2\parindent]{0pt} \lipsum[1] \noindent ...

The traditional French canon des ateliers would give these values for geometry on a4 paper (not taking into account marginpars, headers nor footers): "ordinary" printing: \geometry{textwidth=15.75cm, textheight=23.4cm, marginratio={4:6,5:7}} "neat" printing: \geometry{textwidth=14cm, textheight=21.3cm, marginratio={4:6,5:7}} "luxury" printing: ...

Here's an options using the caption package and its margin key (I added the showframe option to geometry so as to have a visual help for the page layout; I also added \marginparsep to the width of the figure, table and captions, but this is optional): \documentclass[% 12pt, BCOR=15mm, captions=tableheading, DIV=current, ]{scrbook} ...

From the geometry user manual (section 5.7 Other options): pass disables all of the geometry options and calculations except verbose and showframe. It is order-independent and can be used for checking out the page layout of the document class, other packages and manual settings without geometry. Remove this from your options and geometry will ...

Just for a larger comment. This works just fine for me \documentclass[a4paper]{memoir} \usepackage{graphicx} % I do not have that path on my PC \graphicspath{{Pictures/}} \begin{document} \begin{figure}[htbp] \centering \includegraphics[width=\textwidth,keepaspectratio]{PoolofBethesda-CarlBloch} \caption{\emph{Healing at the Pool of Bethesda} (1883) ...

The lengths \oddsidemargin and \evensidemargin need to be augmented/decremented. \documentclass[a4paper,12pt,openright,twoside]{book} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{indentfirst} \usepackage{fancyhdr} \usepackage{booktabs} \pagestyle{fancy}\addtolength{\headwidth}{14pt} \renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{\markboth{\thechapter.\ #1}{}} ...
