Please, how do I set the margin of my abstract to fit an a4paper. I used package geometry \newgeometry(vmargin=15mm)) for the main document

• the abstract environment is defined by the document class that you are using but you have given no information about that. It is very strange to be using \newgeometry to specify your main document size (the point of that command from the geometry package is to define a new geometry for some specific pages that is not the main document layout) please edit the question to give a small complete example showing what you have tried and how you want to change the abstract. – David Carlisle Nov 23 '19 at 21:22
• sorry, the braces are represented by brackets. \documentclass(12pt)(article ) \usepackage (geometry) \newgeometry(vmargin=(15mm)) \begin(document) \newpage. \begin(abstract) contents of abstract. \end(abstract) the problem here is that; while the rest of the document obeyed the "vmargin" command, the abstract refused to obey it. – Chukwu John Nov 24 '19 at 15:47
• I voted to close this question as you have asked an identical one (with an example) however you are still misusing the \newgeometry command in the new question (and it is still unclear what layout you want. – David Carlisle Nov 24 '19 at 18:30
