I would like to modify the left and right margins around the table in the following "code":

\documentclass[a4paper,preprint,aps,unsortedaddress]{revtex4}
\usepackage[top=2.5cm,bottom=2.5cm,left=3.5cm,right=2.5cm]{geometry}
\usepackage{ltablex}

\begin{document}

\setlength\LTleft{-3.0cm}
\setlength\LTright{-2.0cm}

\scriptsize
\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{lr@{--}p{1.3cm}>{\centering\arraybackslash}p{2.6cm}p{1.25cm}p{1.25cm}p{1.25cm}p{1.25cm}p{2.1cm}p{0.7cm}}
 aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa & bbb & ccc & ddd & eee & fff & ggg & hhh & iii & jjj \\
 aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa & bbb & ccc & ddd & eee & fff & ggg & hhh & iii & jjj \\  
 aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa & bbb & ccc & ddd & eee & fff & ggg & hhh & iii & jjj
\end{tabularx}
\normalsize

\end{document} 

However, commands \setlength\LTleft, \setlength\LTright, and \scriptsize are ignored by revtex4. If \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article} is used instead of \documentclass[a4paper,preprint,aps,unsortedaddress]{revtex4}, then the former three commands work fine. Could you please help me how to obtain the same output with \documentclass[a4paper,preprint,aps,unsortedaddress]{revtex4} as with \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article}? I am also curious how to use the same font size in revtex4 as in the case of article.

    IIRC, \LTleft and \LTright are from longtable. The usual approach is to use \hspace*{-3cm} before and \hspace*{-2cm} after tabularx (box).. – John Kormylo Feb 12 at 16:18
  • What do you mean by "tabularx (box)"? Where to insert the \hspace*{-3cm} and \hspace*{-2cm} statements? Could you please report the solution? – Roloka Feb 12 at 16:37
  • Do you mean "\hspace*{-3cm}\begin{tabularx}..." and "\end{tabularx}\hspace*{-2cm}"? – Roloka Feb 12 at 16:54
  • Unfortunately, nothing has changed with respect to the margins... :( – Roloka Feb 12 at 16:57
