I have read a lot of posts about this topic now but still I cannot figure out why the even and odd pages has the same margin. I would like them to have different margins to make Space for the spine of the book. Can you help me?

My code looks like this:

\documentclass[a4paper,11pt]{memoir}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} % Input encoding - Depending on editor
\usepackage{lmodern} % Modern LaTeX font
\usepackage[danish]{babel} % Language package
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc} % Hyphenation
\usepackage{fix-cm} % Fix for cm
\usepackage{graphicx} % To handle pictures
\usepackage{xcolor} % To define colors
\usepackage{tikz} % Graphical tool
\usepackage{mathtools} % To use \eqref
\usepackage{url} % Use of urls in the text
\usepackage{varioref} % Smarter references
\usepackage{calc}% Auto calculate
\usepackage{lipsum} % Debugging text
\usepackage{sansmath,subfig} % Gives a warning because subfig loads caption
\usepackage[backend=bibtex8]{biblatex}
\usepackage{todonotes} % Giver mulighed for kommentarer
\addbibresource{referencer/my-bibliography-file.bib}

    Welcome to TeX.SX! (Welcome for your first question anyway, you don't seem to be exactly a new user :-)) You might want to think about reducing your MWE by quite a bit as there seems to be quite a bit lurking about there that does not directly have bearing on your question. You might want to look for binding offset. (tex.stackexchange.com/q/42160/35864) The geometry might be able to help you. – moewe Sep 2 '14 at 14:22

    Your code is very far from minimal. – Martin Schröder Sep 3 '14 at 9:38
  • You are also doing very strange things in this template. \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\contentsname} \thispagestyle{empty} \tableofcontents*, remove the * and the \addcontentsline is irrelevant. Also remove the \setlength{\parskip}{\f@size pt}, you should not add space between paragraphs. Waste of space. – daleif Sep 3 '14 at 10:57

The following line kills your page setup; I don't know why it is there but comment it out and you are back in business

\setlength{\evensidemargin}{\oddsidemargin}

Please don't put your whole thesis for a question like this. I've commented out everything and put a lipsum content in the main matter which was sufficient to find the problem.

You have \setbinding{<length>} as given in the manual for space (see the manual)
