As the name suggests, \setuppapersize sets the paper size for typesetting (the first argument) as well as the paper size for printing (the second argument). The second argument is optional; if omitted, it defaults to the value of the first argument.
sets the paper size to letter paper, which is a pre-defined paper size. Other pre-defined paper sizes include:
- letter, ledger, tabloid, legal, folio, and executive sizes from the North American paper standard;
- sizes A0 – A10, B0 – B10, and C0 – C10 from the A, B, and C series of the ISO-216 standard;
- sizes RA0 – RA4 and SRA0 – SRA4 from the RA and SRA series of ISO-217 paper standard;
- sizes C6/C5, DL, and E4 from ISO-269 standard envelope sizes;
- envelope 9 – envelope 14 sizes from the American postal standard;
- sizes G5 and E5 from the Swedish SIS-014711 standard. These are used for Swedish theses;
- size CD for CD covers;
- size S3 – S6, S8, SM, and 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;
- a few more paper sizes, which are not mention here. See page-lay.mki(i|v) for details.
To define your own paper size, see \definepapersize.
In addition to paper sizes, the second argument takes some special options:
- samesized : same size as the first argument
- oversized : adds 1,5cm to each side
- undersized : subtracts 1.5cm from each side
- doublesized : doubles the width
- doubleoversized: doubles the width and adds 1,5 cm to each side
