I came here to understand why latex had this "odd" habit to set the outer margin wider than the inner in two sided documents.
As many have asked before me, I expected the inner margin to be wider to take into account the binding space. From the answer to those questions I discovere that the outer margin should be wider that the inner and that the inner margin does NOT takes into account the binding space (since it's not universal but depends on the binding type).
I need to give the print shop a PDF version of the thesis ready to be printed. When I went there today he told me that usually the inner margin is wider to take into account the binding and to be equal to the outer once it's bond.
I accept the "outer margin is wider" standard, but I need to add a bit of binding space to my pages. How do I do it?
It's the first time I print a two sided document. If I told something wrong feel free to teach me how to setup (maybe also outside of latex) correctly a two sided document.
Thank you very much
