# How to change a page layout in a Overleaf template?

I am using a template from Overleaf enter link description here

However, I have no idea where to change the page layout. I want to write more in my Abstract page, while other page maintained the same as the template.

If I used this:

\usepackage[top=2cm,left=1.2cm,right=1.2cm, bottom=1cm]{geometry}


It will change all the pages. I just want Abstract page.

In the photo below, I want to word Abstract move to top a little, so that I can write more. However, others title remain the same as template, Am I able to do that?

For example:

\include{structure/abstract}  %-> page size larger

\include{structure/acknowledgements}  %--> page remain in original size


  \documentclass[12pt,oneside]{book}  % Remove draft option to show figures (for final draft), otherwise keep for faster production

\usepackage{uorthesis}  % Loads the LaTeX style package
\usepackage[backend=biber, style=authoryear, dashed=false]{biblatex}

\usepackage{titlesec}
% \titleformat{\chapter}[block]
%   {\normalfont\sffamily\LARGE\bfseries\filcenter}
%   {\filcenter\chaptertitlename\ \thechapter\filcenter\\}{20pt}{\huge}

\titleformat{\chapter}[block]   {\normalfont\sffamily\LARGE\bfseries\filcenter}   {\filcenter\chaptertitlename\ \thechapter\filcenter\\}{20pt}{\huge}[{\titlerule[1pt]}]

% Put custom packages to be loaded here
% \usepackage{linguex}  % For linguistic examples
% \usepackage{tikz}     % For drawing

\begin{document}

% Title page

% All subsequent pages must be numbered, title page is considered page i,
% front matter is numbered in lowercase Roman numerals
\pagestyle{fancy}
\pagenumbering{roman}
\setcounter{page}{2}
\doublespacing

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% DISSERTATION CONTENT %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

% Regular numbering starts now, first page of first chapter is page 1

\setcounter{page}{0}
\pagenumbering{arabic}

% Body

\include{structure/abstract}

\include{structure/acknowledgements}

% References

\markboth{\MakeUppercase{Bibliography}}{}
\singlespacing

• Please make your code compilable. Since all the files you include using the \include command are not available (and most likely their exact contents are nevertheless not relevant to the question itself), please remove them and replace them with some suitable dummy contents. Aug 29 '20 at 13:14
• @leandriis thanks for your suggestion. I had edited it. and only \include{structure/abstract} \include{structure/acknowledgements}.

• From the image you show I guess that the "abstract" file starts with something like \chapter*{abstract}. Is that correct? You mention you want the chapter title of the abstract to change position while keeping all other chapter titles where they currently are. Do you have other unnumbered chapters (\chapter*) in your document? Should they change position as well? Please clarify. Aug 29 '20 at 13:23
• In case you want to affect all unnumbered chapter titles, take a look at (tex.stackexchange.com/a/249370/134144) Aug 29 '20 at 13:31
• @leandriis Thanks. It worked, it took an hour to check and it works well. In answering to your question, yes, I have other \chapter` that I do not want to change the size.
