Questions tagged [margins]

{margins} is about dealing with (above all, changing) the margins of (whole) pages and, conversely, the width and height of the textblock and its positioning on the page. Popular packages are {geometry} and {typearea}. For changing the "margins" in the middle of a page, use {indentation} instead.
