The first argument selects the area for typesetting and the second (optional) argument the papersize for printing. If the second argument is omitted, it defaults to the value of the first argument.

Options for the second argument are:

  • oversized : adds 1,5 cm on each side
  • doublesized doubles the size
  • doubleoversized doubles the size and adds 1,5 cm on each side


The second argument is A4 by default (it would be better to use the same as the first argument for default value, but now it cannot be changed back for compatibility reasons). This means that you always have to provide the second argument if you want some othe paper size than A4.

For example if you want a landscape document, make sure to say landscape in both arguments:


To define your own paper size see cmd:definepapersize.
