Adding \makeatletter \setlength\beamer@paperwidth{20.00cm}% \setlength\beamer@paperheight{13.00cm}% \geometry{papersize={\beamer@paperwidth,\beamer@paperheight}} \makeatother should do the job, though it might be necessary to tweak the overall scale here.

Copy xcookybooky.sty in the working directory and edit it so that the lines \setlength{\textwidth}{15.5cm} \setlength{\textheight}{24.0cm} \setlength{\topmargin}{-0.8cm} \setlength{\headheight}{14pt} %0cm \setlength{\headsep}{1cm} \setlength{\topskip}{0cm} \setlength{\footskip}{1.4cm} \setlength{\evensidemargin}{-0.5cm} \setlength{\oddsidemargin}{0.5cm} \...

Your template is a mess, with many packages that are most likely useless. However, the problem is loading both geometry and vmargin, which fight each other in trying to set the pagination parameters. The latter, that is vmargin, is buggy and should not be used.

This is a documentated difference to pdftex. From the manual: Magnification (\mag) is only supported in dvi output mode. You can set this parameter and it even works with true units till you switch to pdf output mode. When you use pdf output you can best not touch the \mag variable. This fuzzy behaviour is not much different from using pdf backend ...

I am not seeing that journals actually require documents to be published in the 21cmx11in format. Looking at the submission guidelines for articles, it provides two preferred styles to download: BioMedCentral_article (ZIP format) - preferred template Springer article svjour3 (ZIP format) - preferred template I downloaded the svjour3 one since the ...

I think the clearest way to see the differences is to use package layout showing you the current writing area and margins and several length of the document in mm. Please see this code \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \usepackage{layout} % from https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/173244/to-display-the-lengths-in-millimeters-by-default \makeatletter \...

geometry changes the layout (unless you use the option pass). So there is a difference between documents with geometry and documents without geometry. But if you load geometry it doesn't make a difference if you set a4paper with \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \usepackage{geometry} or with \documentclass{article} \usepackage[a4paper]{geometry}

I often create booklets in standard and large-print formats in different sizes from a single source. There are a few approaches. If there is certain content that needs to be included or excluded from different formats, you could use something like the comment or multiaudience packages. Passing arguments to a single file If you want a single file from ...

I'd probably say it is an issue with geometry + hyperref vs memoir. Rather than a direct memoir issue. It works just fine, if you use the memoir layout interface instead of geometry \setstocksize{13.39in}{8.27in} \settrimmedsize{\stockheight}{\stockwidth}{*} \setlrmarginsandblock{0.92in}{1.84in}{*} \setulmarginsandblock{0.92in}{2.1in}{*} \...

You're using conflicting packages: in particular vmargin is causing the problems for you. And anything that you're probably doing in vmargin is something you could do with geometry. Remove vmargin and everything works fine for me. Here's my minimal example. \documentclass[10pt, twoside, backref=page, bookmarks, urlcolor=blue, citecolor=blue, linkcolor=...

Well, you did not give us a MWE to play with so I simply used a standard MWE like \documentclass[a5paper]{article} \usepackage{blindtext} \begin{document} \Blinddocument \end{document} Now you can use package crop to get your A5 page paper centered on an A4 page paper like \documentclass[a5paper]{article} \usepackage[cam,a4,center]{crop} % <=======...

Here are the some answers to your some questions. I could make the figure smaller, i.e. \nodeminimum width=5cm, minimum height=5cm,draw,thick,rectangle{};. But then I'd have to readjust all rectangles, etc. You can use some scaling options given in this answer. I'd like to add the red elements. The box in the long, vertical box of the side view ...

By default TeX Live is installed with A4 paper chosen by default. If your environment requires US Letter paper, just run tlmgr paper letter with the appropriate privileges. On macOS, you can use TeX Live Utility (provided you installed TeX Live as MacTeX): menu Configure > Change Paper Size…

Please see that an exact solution depends on how you define 1 Inch in cm or mm. I simply use here the fixed version for 1 Inch = 25.4 mm. Be aware of rounding errors for the conversion of Inch to mm ... Because you gave no mwe (please next time add one!) I can only guess what you are doing. Please see the following MWE containing the "formula" to get ...

The outputs are different because geometry updates the layout (stock margins) in addition to the page size. In contrast, loading a document class like article with a4paper only changes the paper dimensions. See Default margins for geometry package. Here's the only changes imposed by \documentclass[a4paper]{article}: \DeclareOption{a4paper} {\setlength\...

If you love classical design, format and layout of pocket size books, then the octavo document class could be a good alternative. The page size are set to some predefined dimensions as "foolscap"(the smallest), "royal","imperial", etc. but it seem that this change the layout, not the page dimensions on the the PDF (remain in A4 size in any case). I do ...

Add a5paper to documentclass options, and replace letterpaper with a5paper: \documentclass[10pt,a5paper]{article} \usepackage{graphicx,amssymb, amstext, amsmath, epstopdf, booktabs, verbatim, gensymb, geometry, appendix, natbib, lmodern} \geometry{a5paper}
