I have been trying to reduce the space in the left and right margins of this template? The initial image is


So, I added


in the preamble. However, the result is not as I expected (the horizontal lines go to the far right end, while the left margin space stays intact). I would like the left margin space to nullify as well. How can I go about this?

enter image description here

The code:


%A Few Useful Packages
\usepackage{fontspec}                   %for loading fonts
\usepackage{xunicode,xltxtra,url,parskip}   %other packages for formatting
\usepackage[big]{layaureo}              %better formatting of the A4 page
\usepackage{supertabular}               %for Grades
\usepackage{titlesec}                   %custom \section

%Setup hyperref package, and colours for links
\hypersetup{colorlinks,breaklinks,urlcolor=linkcolour, linkcolor=linkcolour}

%\setmainfont[SmallCapsFont = Fontin SmallCaps]{Fontin}
%%% modified for Karol Kozioł for ShareLaTeX use
SmallCapsFont = Fontin-SmallCaps.otf,
BoldFont = Fontin-Bold.otf,
ItalicFont = Fontin-Italic.otf

%Tweak a bit the top margin

  • Can you post a minimal working example (MWE) and not just a code snippet so that we can reproduce the problem on our end? Welcome to TeX.SE! – Troy Jul 26 '17 at 18:03
  • @Troy I have just added a minimal working example. I am not able to understand how to get the "Personal Data" (and further sections) start from the extreme left. – Anannya Uberoi Sep 15 '17 at 22:31

    I'd recommend you have a look at documentation of the layaureo package that you use, and consider if you really require it. I'd reckon that it's responsible for the extra 'binding' space on the left that you are looking to avoid. – Ash Sep 15 '17 at 23:40
