I am writing a document , A4, using KOMA-Scripts (scrbook) and inside my document i have a Flowchart which doesn't pass in portrait. I used

 \KOMAoptions{paper=landscape}
 \recalctypearea
 \newgeometry{left=20mm,right=20mm,top=20mm, bottom=20mm}

and at the end of the Flowchart, for returning to portrait, i write

 \KOMAoptions{paper=portrait}
 \restoregeometry
 \recalctypearea

doing this give me what i want, but i get the following Warning:

Package typearea Warning: Bad type area settings!
(typearea)               The detected line width is about 48%
(typearea)               larger than the heuristically detected line width.
(typearea)               You should e.g. decrease DIV, increase fontsize

(typearea)                this is only a dirty hack on input line 206.

How could i solve this warning due to \recalctypearea?

Remark I know that Overfull \hbox is ... is due to something else

You can't disable the warnings. This behaviour is based on the algorithm of typearea / \recalctyparea. \recalctypearea performs its calculations with the last page settings. But by using landscape, the changes to \textwidth and \textheight are more than 15%. (This is the allowed penalty). typearea ignores the modification of the page orientation. Maybe in the next release Markus Kohm will add such a feature.

  • Does it mean that way i do it is correct? or is there a better way to switch between portrait to landscape in a KOMA-Script dokument?

  • @Eagle: Everything is ok ;-). Markus Kohm offers the same solution on his German website. Commented Sep 5, 2011 at 21:45

    @MarcoDaniel This topic is past for 4.5 years. Unfortunately, I still wasn't able to find a solution to fix this typearea warnings. Could you figure out a fix in the meanwhile?
