I asked similar question here How to have headers, section headings, and figures expand into the margin?

From Document class for designing a book

I want to have new insight...

\documentclass[12pt,parskip=half, DIV=calc, BCOR=10mm, x11names]{scrbook}
\usepackage{lmodern, libertine}
\usepackage{amsmath, xcolor, tcolorbox, empheq}
\usepackage[ilines, headsepline]{scrpage2}

gives page number in margin.

Is there any KOMA option to make the figure to use margine space. I want to center the figure using length "textwidth+marginewidth".

Can i use something similar to code below for entire document only for text and equations (Not for tables and figures)

  • Which environments should use the margin as well? Maybe I got it all wrong, but why don't you just redefine the environment »figure«, so that it includes an addmargin environment?

  • @keks-dose I do not know how to redefine "figure" environment with addmargine. OR can we add -ve margine like \begin{addmargin}[-4em]{0em}?

  • Neither do I, it is obviously not simple, see here: stackoverflow.com/a/1566053 . But I strongly recommend to ask it as a new question.

I've tried to emulate the length of Tufte's lines with Koma and I've found a pair of commands of interest.

The first one is the cited environment addmargin that I use with this options:

 more text  

This makes the sectioning headlines begin with the same indentation of text. But I want section numbers a little on left, with the idea that they mark the hierarchy of sectioning, so I redefine the commandement \othersectionlevelsformat in this way:

\makebox[0pt][r]{\csname the#1\endcsname\autodot\enskip}}

You can see the resulting PDF and the source tex file in my space: https://sites.google.com/site/catalatex9/home/koma/manualreferencia

  • The document looks very nice. But for large number of pages, it is good to set figure margin larger (i feel).

  • We have new package sidenotes with figure* and table* options
