# Text layout with precise dimensions

Geometry does not seem to produce what I need and goes for the default values. The text is 18 by 14 cm in this case, but not anywhere near to 18 by 11 cm.

\documentclass[12pt,oneside]{memoir}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[pass,layoutwidth=11cm,layoutheight=18cm,bindingoffset=0]{geometry}
\usepackage{calc}
\usepackage{textcomp}
\usepackage{microtype}
\usepackage{nicefrac}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\tolerance=1
\emergencystretch=\maxdimen
\hyphenpenalty=10000

• possibly you want [text={11cm,18cm}] – David Carlisle Apr 29 at 18:44
