I've tried with:

\documentclass[10pt,smallroyalvopaper,oldfontcommands]{memoir} 

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\lipsum[1-9]

\end{document}

I got the PDF output with Trim size as 6.175 inches x 9.25 inches because of the option smallroyalvopaper used, but I need the Trim should be as 6.125in x 9.25 inches with the same text width and height of the option smallroyalvopaper also the page should be both side equal, i.e., text width should be center to the Trim size on both odd and even pages...

Please advise...

  • Please advise exactly what you mean by trim size 6.125x9.25 because that is what Peter already told you. I have a felling you want the outputted papersize to have that size, that is not what trimming is about. Trimming is when you print on one size of paper, but is designing a doc of smaller size to be physically cut to the trimmed size. I think you're looking for a method for examples explicitly setting the stock size to this specific size

  • I meant the Trim size as paper width and height

  • Then you used the wording. As mentioned trimmed size is something else.

Peter Wilson answer working fine, with a small addition, and the modified MWE is:

    % memtrimprob.tex SE 642484

\documentclass[10pt,smallroyalvopaper,oldfontcommands]{memoir} 

\stockheight=9.25in
\stockwidth=6.125in
\settrimmedsize{\stockheight}{\stockwidth}{*} % set the trimmed size
\setlrmargins{*}{*}{*} % equal left/right margins
\checkandfixthelayout

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\lipsum[1-9]

\end{document}

  • I'm sorry but I don't think this adds anything to my answer. The smallroyalvopaper class option sets the stock dimensions (plus some other dimensions) so no need to specify them again. Further if the class option had been, say `a4paper' your suggested MWE would have reported problems. May 1, 2022 at 17:54
  • Yes, this works for me and thanks

  • @PeterWilson the OP wanted the stock size to have a width of 6.125in, smallroyalvopaper sets \stockwidth=6.175in. Your example does not change the stock size

  • @MadyYuvi the memoir say of setting the stock would be \setstocksize{9.25in}{6.125in} (that sets those two lengths)

    @GowriSaro I realise that English is not your first language and I think that you did very well. Some bits of LaTeX are not easy to understand· May 3, 2022 at 17:56

I think that this will do it for you.

% memtrimprob.tex SE 642484

\documentclass[10pt,smallroyalvopaper,oldfontcommands]{memoir} 

\settrimmedsize{9.25in}{6.125in}{*} % set the trimmed size
\setlrmargins{*}{*}{*} % equal left/right margins
\checkandfixthelayout

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\lipsum[1-9]

\end{document}

Read the manual for more information, especially Chapter Two Laying out the page.

EDIT FOLLOWING OP'S COMMENT

Please read the manual, especially the 2nd chapter Laying out the page.

There is a distinction between the size of the stock paper which will be printed on (usually specified by the memoir class paper options --- smallroyalvopaper in your case) and the size of the paper when published --- the trimmed size.

In the physical world of printing and publishing, printing is done on specific sizes of paper which are then trimmed to the size for issue to the public. The trimmed size is obviously smaller than the stock size as it is obtained by physically cutting off portions of the printed stock paper.

My MWE provided the trimmed size you wanted. In my MWE you could change the smallroyalvopaper option to a4paper but still get the same trimmed size.
