The first argument of \setuppapersize is the dimension a page will have. The second argument is the size of the paper the pages will be printed on; see \setuparranging for placing multiple pages on a sheet. If the second argument is omitted, the paper size is assumed to equal the page size.
sets the size of the pages to letter size (landscape), and the size of the paper (before cutting) to oversized letter size, which has edges that are 1.5 cm longer. letter is a pre-defined papersize; one can define one's own papersizes using \definepapersize.
There are several options one can use to modify a predefined paper size:
- portrait: the default paper sizes are 'standing up', taller than they are wide.
- landscape: turn the paper 90 degrees so it is lying down
- samesized: same size as the first argument
- oversized: adds 1.5 cm to each edge
- undersized: subtracts 1.5 cm from each edge
- doublesized: doubles the width
- doubleoversized: doubles the width and adds 1.5 cm to each edge
There are quite a few pre-defined paper sizes:
|letter, ledger, tabloid, legal, folio, executive||Sizes from the North American paper standard.|
|A0 – A10, B0 – B10, C0 – C10||From the A, B, and C series of the ISO-216 standard.|
|RA0 – RA4, SRA0 – SRA4||From the RA and SRA series of ISO-217 paper standard.|
|C6/C5, DL, E4||From the ISO-269 standard envelope sizes.|
|envelope 9 – envelope 14||Sizes from the American postal standard.|
|G5 and E5||From the Swedish SIS-014711 standard. These are used for Swedish theses.|
|CD (12x12cm)||for CD covers.|
|S3 – S6, S8, SM, SW||For screen sizes. These sizes are useful for presentations. S3 – S6 and S8 have an aspect ratio of 4:3. S3 is 300pt wide, S4 is 400pt wide, and so on. S6 is almost as wide as a A4 paper. SM and SW are for medium and wide screens; they have the same height as S6.|
