# Setting custom paper size with KOMA Script / pdflatex

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:

\documentclass[liststotoc,bibtotoc,headsepline]{scrreprt}%draft

\input{xx_common_include}

\begin{document}


Where xx_common_include looks like this (extract)...

%------------------------------------
% KOMA Stuff
%------------------------------------

% General KOMAoptions

\KOMAoptions
{
fontsize=11pt,
paper=a4,
pagesize=pdftex
%cleardoublepage=plain,
}

\usepackage{scrpage2}
\automark[section]{chapter}


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?

paper=5cm:3cm,

• please try \KOMAoptions{paper=a1, DIV=15} or \KOMAoptions{paper=a1}\areaset{.95\paperwidth}{.95\paperheight} – touhami Mar 8 '16 at 6:09
