I'm writing an invoice in LaTeX with KOMA-Script and scrlttr2. But the payment information I have put in the footer is too close/gets cut off by the page bottom. The following example should look like this working example from the internet

but instead looks like this my example

the code I'm using is a copy and paste of the example but with everything removed:


\setkomavar{frombank}{Account number \\ Bank name\\
some other info}

John Doe\\
Jane Doe\\
Info-\#1 \\
Some Stuff
Jane Doe\\[1ex]

\opening{Dear Readers,}


I am very grateful for any help.

Regards, haDe

    Welcome to tex.SE. Thanks for providing the sample code for your problem. I would like to point out that you have skipped the \documentclass line and potentially other lines relevant to the layout of your letter in the beginning of the code. I suggest you add that to make the MWE complete, so others can help you more easily.

  • @MarkusG. Thanks. I've moved the \documentclassline to a separate line. I've deleted plenty of lines from the original example, but those were mostly related to setting komavars for addresses and such. I could link the PDF with the original code and preview, if that would help.

    I think you must enlarge the reserved space: put e.g. \csname@addtoplength\endcsname{firstfootvpos}{-1cm} somewhere in your preamble. But there might be better ways, so only a comment and no answer from me...

You need to adjust the position of the footer to account for the extra height.


The text area is automatically adjusted.
