I have a KOMA scrartcl landscape document and would like to change/increase the textwidth. How do I do this? All the solutions I found only affect a single page or a page range. I want to do it for all of the document.

So far I just have

\documentclass[11pt,landscape,DIV=10]{scrartcl}
\begin{document}
lorem ipsum
\end{document}

  • Maybe you want to set a value for option DIV, eg. DIV=10. Or you can load and use package geometry.

  • @esdd Thanks. I am already using this option (forgot in the question). I still want it wider. Regarding geometry, I read somewhere that KOMA has its own geometry commands/variables. Commented Oct 2, 2020 at 14:16

You can use areaset:

\documentclass[11pt,landscape,DIV=10,areasetadvanced]{scrartcl}
\areaset{27cm}{\textheight}

\usepackage{showframe}% to show the page layout
\usepackage{lipsum}% only dummy text

\begin{document}
\lipsum[1-100]
\end{document}

Or you can add KOMA-Script usegeometry to the class options. Then load package geometry and adjust the horizontal margins.

Example:

\documentclass[11pt,landscape,DIV=10,usegeometry]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[hmargin=2cm,nomarginpar]{geometry}

\usepackage{showframe}% to show the page layout
\usepackage{lipsum}% only dummy text

\begin{document}
\lipsum[1-100]
\end{document}
