Fitting more text on a typeset page
Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word
Without any other modifications, adding the geometry package to a document enlarges its typeset margins so that you can get much more text on a page.
By default, the standard LaTeX article class has margins of about 1-7/8 inches an all sides (on 8-1/2 x 11 inch paper). Adding the geometry package to your standard LaTeX article document results in margins of about 1-3/16 inches on each side and one inch on the top and bottom. Alternatively, you can set the margins as you desire.
For complete information on how to use the package, see the documentation available through the program's online Help.
If you need to fit a little more text on a single page of your document, place the Enlarge Page (TeX Field) fragment near the top of the page and place a page break where you want the page to end. When you typeset your document, LaTeX places all the text before the page break on the page.
