I want it such that my sections always start on an odd page - I can then create separate handouts to give out each week. I know I can do this by specifying twoside for my article but this gives asymmetric margins. My handouts are not bound so this makes it look a bit odd. Is there anyway to either:

  1. start sections on an odd page in oneside article?
  2. set the page margins for twoside the same as a oneside article?

Thanks

Martyn

  • Use the geometry package to set the margins. Perhaps someone else will provide example code. May 31, 2021 at 16:33

    you can use geometry or at the base level in latex there is just one length that needs to be set: \setlength\evensidemargin{\oddsidemargin} is all you need May 31, 2021 at 18:07
  • Here are a lot of suggestions how to do things if a page is odd (or even): tex.stackexchange.com/questions/6143/…. In twoside you will have to check whether the last page of a section is odd or not, because when it is odd you need to insert an empty page - even in a oneside article, otherwise the readers will miss a page.

  • @C.Peters but you don't need to explicitly check, just use \cleardoublepage will always put you on an odd page. May 31, 2021 at 18:08
  • Thanks, I will take a look later

I can confirm that [David][1] is correct,

At the base level in latex there is just one length that needs to be set: \setlength\evensidemargin{\oddsidemargin} is all you need

Then twoside has identical even and odd page margins.

Thank you!
