So I've already got my book ready set for a6 paper: contents, latex compilation, and I'm already satisfied with the end result of pdf I've got. However I've noticed that it'd be good to add a small margin/offset binding to the left/inner side to have more space to glue/bind it all together.
Setting margins in the latex compilation would, even slightly, change the resulting pdf. I'm trying to avoid that step.
...Although one of the comments has already fixed that!! So a short answer/solution would be that comment suggested by
The problem may be rather similar to insert pdf, add margin, or even a unpopular/unanswered question on margin width. This is one of the topics I've noticed most clogged with low qualified questions and answers. Is it possible to find a canonic solution?
I can't manage to give the margin on only one side from the done pdf. So the question is rather simple and even universal I hope:
Is it possible to place only a 1 cm margin on one side of a ready pdf?
(with an a6paper as end result)
Maybe a possible solution would most likely be similar to this post on what to do with a ready pdf to send it to print.
So I got answers and realized some important shit regarding margins offset/scaling.
If you get an offset margin in any size of paper, you'll get a scaled page, and you'll need to cut off the upper and lower margin so that the text doesn't get out of proportion.
- Nota bene. It seems it's best practice to go back to the book, before compilation, and set the outset there: this way it's possible to avoid using an exacto knife massively. ...Also I'm sorry to admit that this whole question is a paradox. However, two answers dealed awesome with possible responses:
Werner, on one hand, showed what the question was intending to do, and this brought the awareness of paradox.
ph0t0nix, on the other hand, showed the new path that is needed, even if by surprise.
