University requirements stipulate that the margins for the thesis be 3.5cms all around and 4 cms on the left. I used the following code but the even-page margins seem to be off. How can make the document have the same margin dimensions as the first image (odd-page):

\documentclass[oneside, 11pt, a4paper]{memoir}

As Zarko's comment points out, there's something wrong with the way showframe is framing the page.

Try replacing this:


with this:


and you should get correct framing; the showlocs page style is described in the Memoir manual, section 7.4.

  • Hi Brent; apologies for commenting on an answer for this, but I wasn't sure how else to get hold of you. I've commented upon an issue on your GitHub, and haven't heard anything. Just wondered if you have a preferred method of communication?
