                |       THE SAVETREES PACKAGE        |
                | By Scott Pakin, scott+st@pakin.org |


The goal of the savetrees package is to pack as much text as possible
onto each page of a LaTeX document.  Admittedly, this makes the
document far less attractive.  Nevertheless, savetrees is a simple way
to save paper when printing draft copies of a document.  It can also
be useful when trying to meet a tight page-length requirement for a
conference or journal submission.


To install savetrees, run "latex savetrees.ins" to produce the various
package files.  Move savetrees.sty into a directory searched by LaTeX
(e.g., .../texmf/tex/latex/misc/).  Move savetrees.bst into a
directory searched by BibTeX (e.g., .../texmf/bibtex/bst/misc/).  And
move savetrees.bbx and savetrees.cvx into directories searched by
Biblatex (e.g., .../texmf/tex/latex/biblatex/bbx/ and

save­trees – Op­ti­mise the use of each page of a doc­u­ment

The goal of the save­trees pack­age is to pack as much text as pos­si­ble onto each page of a doc­u­ment. Ad­mit­tedly, this makes the doc­u­ment far less at­trac­tive. Nev­er­the­less, save­trees is a sim­ple way to save pa­per when print­ing draft copies of a doc­u­ment. It can also be use­ful when try­ing to meet a tight page-length re­quire­ment for a con­fer­ence or jour­nal sub­mis­sion.

Most of the pack­age op­tions cover spe­cific mod­i­fi­ca­tions to type­set­ting rules, but there are also op­tions sub­tle, mod­er­ate and ex­treme op­tions for the “broad brush” ap­proach.
