Added by red sea over 9 years ago

Can I control the place dark circles in the four corners to reduce the margin?

why: I want to enlarge the boxes, but the page is small, And want to keep them in one page.

The page layout is controlled by AMC with the geometry package. You can change the default settings with the help of the \geometry command, placed just before the \begin{document} line. The default values are
\geometry{hmargin=3cm,headheight=2cm,headsep=.3cm,footskip=1cm,top=3.5cm,bottom=2.5cm}

You can reduce the margins to get more space for the questions and answers, but be careful:
  • The four corner marks must be printed entirely (they can disappear due to the printer margins).
  • The four corner marks must be entirely visible on the scans (if they are too close from the border and the paper moved a little or turned a little during scanning, this could not be the case).

Also thank you from me.
I think this tip will help users very much if it is on the documentation.
Thanks.
