----- Forwarded message from Hideo Umeki ----- I am pleased to announce version 3.0 of geometry package. Package: Geometry v3.0 (2002/06/30) Author: Hideo UMEKI (hideo.umeki at toshiba.co.jp) Licence: Distributed under the terms of LPPL Abstract: The package provides a flexible and complete user interface to page dimensions. Geometry becomes even more flexible and powerful with the release of version 3.0. This new release contains major changes and enhancements in user interface, calculation schemes and the default settings of the page dimensions. o New default layout. The automatic centering is no longer default layout. Instead centering, the idea of margin ratio and common values for default settings are introduced. o Option 'twosideshift' is obsoleted. o A complete set of options 'ignore*' and 'include*' for head, foot and marginpar. And 'ignoreall' is now set by default. o New options: '{h,v}marginratio', 'ignore*', 'include*', 'lines', 'heightrounded', 'screen', 'asymmetric', 'showframe' and etc. See the manual for the detail. ----- End forwarded message ----- Thanks for the submission. I installed it replacing the old version in CTAN:/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported/geometry/ Reinhard Zierke for the CTAN team

geometry – Flexible and complete interface to document dimensions

The package provides an easy and flexible user interface to customize page layout, implementing auto-centering and auto-balancing mechanisms so that the users have only to give the least description for the page layout. For example, if you want to set each margin 2cm without header space, what you need is just \usepackage[margin=2cm,nohead]{geometry}.

The package knows about all the standard paper sizes, so that the user need not know what the nominal ‘real’ dimensions of the paper are, just its standard name (such as a4, letter, etc.).

An important feature is the package’s ability to communicate the paper size it’s set up to the output (whether via DVI \specials or via direct interaction with pdf).
