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).

    I added a bit of information to your question, hope you don't mind. (This should make it better-googleable.)

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

    Another option, which seems equivalent, is issuing \microtypesetup{tracking=false} after \usepackage{savetrees}. \PassOptionsToPackage{tracking=false}{microtype} does not work.

  • 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/… Dec 11, 2012 at 9:19
