I try to set a document with some custom paper dimensions (lets say 24cm height and 17cm width), the beginning of the file looks like so:




Where xx_common_include looks like this (extract)...

% KOMA Stuff

% General KOMAoptions


% Headers


Now, obviously the line "paper=a4" should look different in order to get the document to match the required size. How do I achieve that?


you can do that like this

  • With this I'm able to make the page smaller but the text I already have doesn't centre. So the text gets cut off on the right and at the bottom. Any tips how I can fix this problem? – menetl Feb 18 '15 at 8:40
  • @menetl of corse you need to change others dimensions text margins ... you can do this with DIV=calc. I edit my answer. – touhami Feb 18 '15 at 11:38
  • @touhami And what should I do if I need a A1 paper sheet and inside the document, how can I adjust the margins for can use the most of the paper surface? – Aradnix Mar 7 '16 at 23:56
