i am using the arsclassica package, documentclass scrreprt with the options oneside and BCOR10mm. however, the binding correction does not apply to the titlepage as can be seen in the package example. is there a way to make that happen?

    Please post a compilable minimal working example. Please also load package showframe and use extreme values for BCOR. Additionally, are you using package geometry? An MWE will show. – Johannes_B Jun 2 '16 at 8:14

    One additional thing: BCOR10mm is deprecated. Make it BCOR=10mm or better BCOR=50mm to really see a difference. – Johannes_B Jun 2 '16 at 8:19
  • a working example is directly given by the link above, it is compilable expect for the bibliography and index. i fear something is going to get lost when i create my own working example :/ the geometry package is not loaded. – user92856 Jun 2 '16 at 8:27

The following example shows that binding correction also applies to the titlepage.

\usepackage{blindtext}% dummy text
\usepackage{showframe}% to show the page layout

With BCOR=0mm the result would be:

  • thank you very much. then the behaviour i encountered may be due to the explicit titlepage template from the arsclassica package :/ – user92856 Jun 2 '16 at 9:32
  • As @Johannes_B already has said: Post a MWE that shows the issue. The link in your question is only the CTAN entry of the package. There is neither an example directly available nor an explicit titlepage template. – esdd Jun 2 '16 at 9:44
  • oh, i'm sorry, i will be more precise the next time. – user92856 Jun 2 '16 at 9:48

as pointed out above, the problem is due to the titlepage template in the arsclassica package. commenting out the line

\changetext{}{}{}{((\paperwidth  - \textwidth) / 2) - \oddsidemargin - \hoffset - 1in}{}

finally did it.
