I am trying to send a paper to a conference with specific margin requirements. I use the geometry package to define the margins.

\usepackage[papersize={8.5in,11in}, left=1in, right=1in, top=1in, bottom=1in]{geometry}

However, I still get errors when trying to upload. e.g, The paper has a bottom margin of 0.958 inches on page 3, which does not leave 1 inches of margin.

Why are the margins set by geometry getting overridden? Is there a way to hard set the margins if so?

Thank You in advance !

  • Use the showframe option for geometry package and then you can see what happens on every page. Also, you can just use margin=1in. – Sigur May 4 '15 at 18:32
  • Welcome to TeX SE! Do you need to add includeall so that headers, footers, margin notes etc. are all put within the area allowed for the text body? In addition to showframe, you can pass verbose to get console output showing the results of geometry's calculations. – cfr May 4 '15 at 18:34
  • How do you know the bottom of p3 has a margin of 0.958"? Is this calculated automatically through some submission system? – Werner May 4 '15 at 18:36
  • @Werner Yes. Calculated by edas.info – Andy May 4 '15 at 18:40

    Sorry for the late update. Using includeall as suggested by @cfr worked for me at the time. Thank You everyone for the help. – Andy May 20 '15 at 9:08
