I'm using the LED template to MSc which uses memoir twoside. I need to print it and it requires extra margins for binding.

How do I simply add the extra space on the spine side of the page?

\documentclass[11pt, a4paper, twoside, makeidx]{memoir}




% *************** Wygląd strony ***************





% *************** Stylu rozdziałów i podrozdziałów ***************
        \chaptitlefont\hrule height 0.5pt \vspace{1em}%
        {##1}\vspace{1em}\hrule height 0.5pt%



  • Are line/page breaks allowed to change, or is this a "last-minute" correction that shouldn't affect (most of) the layout?

  • Sadly "Last minute". Currently looks great... on screen.

  • It's necessary to see the part of the preamble where the page parameters are set.

  • OK, It seems I found the solution: (at least it worked for me) \setlrmargins{}{2cm}{}

1 Answer 1


As described in the memoir manual, chapter 2, the command \setlrmargins is available to adjust margins, with arguments:


Only one argument could be given, with * for the two others e.g.


There is also a command


that adds to the inner margin to allow for the binding. This should be added after setting the page size, but before setting the margins.
