How can I set the same margin on right and left side of the page?

I'm using \documentclass[12pt]{book}

but if i set

\evensidemargin 62pt
\oddsidemargin 62pt

I will have different margin for the two sides.

  • Please use geometry instead of setting the values directly. And this package has an asymmetric option, which does the job for you. – TeXnician Feb 20 '17 at 18:21

    Add oneside as a class option. – Torbjørn T. Feb 20 '17 at 18:23
  • I need two-side, but i want the the text will be at the same distance of each margin. – NxA Feb 20 '17 at 18:28

    @NxA: I don't see a difference in the margin when using your setting. However, consider using \usepackage[hmargin=62pt]{geometry}. – Werner Feb 20 '17 at 18:34

    With two-side printing, it goes against all the typographic rules, for obvious reasons… – Bernard Feb 20 '17 at 20:43
