1. Unnecessary page size limitations in LaTeX
: It's a shame there are so few paper size options in LaTeX's standard
: document classes, such as article. No, let me rephrase that: it's a
: shame that there's _any_ fixed number of paper sizes available in
: standard LaTeX document classes!
I agree with you. The fixed papersizes in LaTeX are a problem
and sometimes don't workk at all.
Ever tried a4paper.landscape?
But including more and more sizes into the classes wont help.
: After all, options like 'a4paper' simply get turned into \paperwidth
: and \paperheight settings, and the rest of the article class can
: process happily with those numbers alone. So, theoretically, if I have
: some non-standard paper size, I ought to be able to simply specify
: the size somehow, in an explicit fashion, to the document class, and
: it will work famously!
When you only change paperwidth and ..height you still use LaTeXs
way to calculate textwidth and ..height.
Since I did like neither I defined my own packages
din_a3, din_a4, din_a5, each with the options
Type1, Type2, Fullpage (a5 with additional Nomargin).
Thus I'm able to select the 3 main papersizes I use with 3
They are still in beta-test (reducing the number of tokens etc.)
I will upload them to CTAN soon (next month?).
BTW The Companion is a BOOK. Printed with a modified book.cls I guess.
Books schould (need) not be in ISO or US papersizes. There are
some formats that are better suited for boooks.
