Problem: the bottom margin is too large, i.e. I want the text to run further towards the footer, i.e. closer to the footer rule in the example below, but still keep div=calc such that the rest fits as it does now. Minimum Working Example showing the problem:

\documentclass[DIV=calc, paper=a4, fontsize=11pt, twocolumn]{scrartcl}


\rfoot{\footnotesize Page \thepage\ of \pageref{LastPage}}





Thanks in advance :)!

Edit: Screenshot showing the problem added. I'd like to shrink the vertical space that I indicated with the arrow. enter image description here

  • I think the result of your mwe looks quite nicely. However, how much space would you like between the bottom of the text and the footer?

  • @alexraasch I am not sure how much exactly, maybe about half of what it is now.

One solution is to add footheight=0mm to the options of \documentclass{scrartcl}:


  • However, I think you should re-read the KOMA script's documentation once again carefully. Chapter 2 explains everything you need to know about headlines and footlines in detail and usually no other packages are necessary. Aug 11, 2016 at 12:19
