\printindex

\end{document}

I want to add some picture, quite big, and I'm looking for how to use a different margin for the pictures so as to display larger images.

Thaks for the help.

  • @Federico, which text? text which i added is wrap correctly, for other is responsible your document class. – Zarko May 8 '19 at 16:07
  • @Federico, sorry, i don't understand you. it seems that you have new problem, which is not mentioned in your question. please, edit your question and show us, what you doing. now it is not clear. – Zarko May 8 '19 at 16:13
  • Thanks Zarko! You solved my problem! Thank you very much! – Federico May 8 '19 at 16:19
  • I have one more question, how can I force the image position? I tried with [h!] but it doesn't work. Thanks for your time! – Federico May 8 '19 at 16:40
  • @Federico, you should never use just h!. with it LaTeX is not enabled to move figure to the next page, if on inserted page haven't enough space. see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/39017/… – Zarko May 8 '19 at 16:46
