It is weird that with the following options, geometry doesn't set the equal right margin, it will be alternating on even and odd pages:


non-equal right margin I want to have all the page have right margin 1.5in and left margin 0.5in, how to do this? MME:


1 Answer 1


This is because the amsart issues the following


which sets the default options of the class. Note that this includes twoside, which necessarily implies a different left (typically even) and right (typically odd) page layout. geometry follows this requirement, switching the left/right margins according to the page number (odd or even).

If you want to maintain a consistent layout from one page to the next, issue oneside as part of the document class options:

  • That's great, in fact I try to add oneside as an opition to geometry but not works. Thanks again!
