I am using a style file that I found for a CV but I need to include the cover letter with the CV in a single file. So I am just putting the cover letter on the first page. The margins though are too small on the right hand side. So how can I override this and put more space on that side?


It would be easier to make your CV and cover letter separate documents and use a PDF utility to combine them. The PDF utility could be LaTeX with the pdfpages package.

    Or, as an alternative pdftk (pdfhacks.com/pdftk) is an excellent tool for combining pdf files (and much more). – hlovdal Nov 24 '10 at 3:42

  • There's also Acrobat (Pro, not regular), and Mac Preview that can combine with a GUI. – Matthew Leingang Nov 24 '10 at 19:25
  • There also exist GUIs for PDFtk. – Thorsten Donig Nov 25 '10 at 9:05

Matthew's suggestion is the preferable solution. However, since version 5 of geometry it is possible to alter the page dimensions within a document. The package manual has the details.
