In my preamble, should I give the
a4paper option just once or twice, i. e. once for the KOMA-script document class (
scrartcl) and once for
geometry? Is this redundant or does
scrartcl need the option for the calculation of the type area (or something else)?
Lately, I have just used
and I haven’t had any adverse effects. Still, it seems a little strange to me not to pass any “size options” to the document class. But is this the “right way” to go?
By the way, I am using XeLaTeX to typeset.
