# Re: Margins in LaTeX

To increase the margins in LaTeX, try the following in the preamble of
your document (before the \begin{document}, after the \documentclass{}):

\setlength{\hoffset}{-0.5in}
\setlength{\voffset}{-0.5in}

This increases the margins by half an inch all the way around.  You could
probably set the \textwidth and \textheight, but making relative changes
is probably safer.

Good Luck!
