# Decrease page margins

I have found a very neat template for a cv. The problem is that I cannot regulate the dimension of the single column, resulting in way too much space wasted on the sides of the page. I would love to have "Second line" with less line brakes, that is, moving "date" more on the left, and leaving more spaces for text on the right.

How can I change this settings? Thank you.

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[LabelsAligned]{currvita} % nice cv style
\usepackage{url}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage[nochapters]{classicthesis}

\usepackage[gen]{eurosym}
\begin{document}

\begin{cv}{\spacedallcaps{Title}}
%\pdfbookmark[1]{Pers\"onliche Daten}{PersDat}

\begin{cvlist}{\spacedlowsmallcaps{Section title}}\label{Conferences and Talks}
\item[date] First line
\item[date] Second line Second line Second line Second line Second line Second line Second line Second line Second line Second line Second line Second line Second line Second line
\end{cvlist}

\end{cv}
\end{document}

• By "spacing" you mean margins? Feb 5, 2016 at 15:47
• Acv insn't different from any other document, so you can use package geometry to define the page margins. Feb 5, 2016 at 16:14
• scrartcl has its own KOMA based page margin adjustment system. You can use it or geometry, just don't try to use both. Feb 6, 2016 at 20:16

\usepackage[left=1.5cm, right=2cm]{geometry}

• top=1cm, bottom=1cm can also be useful to set all margins Sep 2, 2016 at 16:15
• \usepackage[bottom=0.5cm, right=1.5cm, left=1.5cm, top=1.5cm]{geometry} sets all margins. Mar 28 at 20:17
Use the geometry package and write \newgeometry{left=3cm,bottom=0.1cm} where you want to change your margins. When you want to reset your margins, you write \restoregeometry.
