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 of corse you need to change others dimensions text margins ... you can do this with DIV=calc. I edit my answer.

    please try \KOMAoptions{paper=a1, DIV=15} or \KOMAoptions{paper=a1}\areaset{.95\paperwidth}{.95\paperheight}
