@cmhughes Thanks for the pointer to the changepage package, inspection of its \ch@ngetext macro was indeed helpful. +1

comment Change \textwidth after first page in scrlttr2
@DavidCarlisle Well, almost working at least. I still haven't figured out how to issue the change of \textwidth at exactly the page break and not after the end of the first (broken across pagebreak) paragraph on page 2. But as I understand you, this won't be possible without additional machinery like luatex. Pity. However I think that your reply, while a negative answer, deserves the status answer.

comment Change \textwidth after first page in scrlttr2
@DavidCarlisle I think I finally understand your comment, after copying the required definitions from the changepage package. This does almost what I want: \afterpage{% \pagebreak \global\setlength{\textwidth}{17cm}% \global\setlength{\columnwidth}{\textwidth}% \global\setlength{\hsize}{\columnwidth}% \global\setlength{\linewidth}{\hsize}}% Except that the \pagebreak (or \eject or \clearpage) does not do what I want it to do. As you say, the pagebreak has already taken place. \firstfoot does not seem to work either.

comment Change \textwidth after first page in scrlttr2
@DavidCarlisle I see, but even when I add \eject or \clearpage as first commands into the \nexthead and \afterpage arguments, it still doesn't work. And despite an increased argument to \lipsum, the modified \textwidth does not even show at later pages.
