I need to format my book to 6x9 for printing on KDP. In my mwe, when I include graphicx the page shrinks as shown below. The pages layout is fine when I remove the line \usepackages{graphicx} or the \usepackage{geometry} line.

How do I format my book for 6x9 using memoir and graphicx?

\documentclass[12pt]{memoir}

\usepackage[paperwidth=6in, paperheight=9in, bindingoffset=0.75in]{geometry}

\usepackage{graphicx}

\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
  \lipsum[1-3]
\end{document}

Load geometry after graphicx (see this answer by @David Carlisle as to why this happens I think):

\documentclass[12pt]{memoir}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[paperwidth=6in, paperheight=9in, bindingoffset=0.75in]{geometry}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
  \lipsum[1-3]
\end{document}

  • Thanks! Works great, tho shouldn't the bindingoffset be removed? It puts the wide margin on the inside when it should be on the outside. Commented Mar 15, 2023 at 15:39

    Hi James I'm just saying that your code \usepackage[paperwidth=6in, paperheight=9in]{geometry} without bindingoffset=0.75in did the trick. bindingoffset=0.75in pushed the text too far to the outside of the page. Commented Mar 16, 2023 at 5:10
