Apparently I can't use savetrees with lualatex - is there another way to expand the writable area to the whole page (for US-letter currently, I think other people are interested in A4)?

I get this error message:

! Package microtype Error: The `tracking' feature doesn't currently work
(microtype)                with luatex.

    savetrees (mine is: v2.0, dated 2011/05/14) should work with luatex; if you have found a bug, then it should be reported (or perhaps asked here if you are unsure). – jon Dec 10 '12 at 20:27

    I added a bit of information to your question, hope you don't mind. (This should make it better-googleable.) – doncherry Dec 10 '12 at 20:37

You can use savetrees with LuaTeX. You just need to load microtype with the correct options before loading savetrees.

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage[tracking=false]{microtype}
\usepackage{savetrees}
\begin{document}
Some text.
\end{document}

    Another option, which seems equivalent, is issuing \microtypesetup{tracking=false} after \usepackage{savetrees}. \PassOptionsToPackage{tracking=false}{microtype} does not work. – doncherry Dec 10 '12 at 20:34
  • I don't need to deactivate tracking. savetrees works fine for me. I'm using the beta version of microtype 2011/09/05 v2.5 <beta-08>. It can be found here: tlcontrib.metatex.org/cgi-bin/package.cgi/ruid=314897842/… – Ulrike Fischer Dec 11 '12 at 9:19
