Syntax (autogenerated)

\startnarrower[...,...] ... \stopnarrower
[...,...][+-]left [+-]middle [+-]right number*left number*middle number*right reset reverse


Make the margins wider on the left, the right, or (default) both sides. By default the margin(s) is/are made wider by 0.5cm; to change these distances, use \setupnarrower, or use \startnarrow. Using \startnarrower[left=2cm] does not work.


left means increase left-hand margin.

right means increase right-hand margin.

middle means increase margin on both sides.


By preceding the argument with a negative sign (eg. \startnarrower[-2*left]) the text area can be made wider, rather than narrower.



The Gibbelins eat, as is well known, nothing less good than man. Their evil 
tower is joined to Terra Cognita, to the lands we know, by a bridge. 


    (default, middle=0.5cm) Their hoard is beyond reason; avarice has no use 
    for it; they have a separate cellar for emeralds and a separate cellar for 
    sapphires; they have filled a hole with gold and dig it up when they need it. 

    (1cm left, 3cm right) And the only use that is known for their ridiculous 
    wealth is to attract to their larder a continual supply of food.

    (1cm middle) In times of famine they have even been known 
    to scatter rubies   abroad, a little trail of them to some city of Man, and 
    sure enough their larders would soon be full again.
