I played wih hte setup and read the posts on the list. Apparently the
mechanism for setting different margins can be confusing at times. At
least, it is for a beginner.
I want to create 2 versions of my book:
Version 1: Goes to printing with different inner and outer margins due
to binding and so on,
Version 2: Can be downloaded and the left and right margins are equal size.
I want ot keep the 6x9 size of a page, which is: 432x648pt. The sum of
margins in both cases is 120pt. It leaves 312pt for the text content.
When I do hte following:
alternative=doublesided, width=fit, height=fit,
leftmargin=60pt, leftmargin=60pt, ...]
The makeup width and text width is calculated as 472pt and the margin
appears to be set just on one side.
I set both cutspace and backspace to 0pt. I assumed that either value is
a particular area of the page.
Has any one of you handled such a case? I'll be very glad to get some
I can create a simple document with modes or documents to illustrate my
case if needed...
