LaTeX a5 paper size

In theory, the option ‘a5paper’ should give you a page of A5. Unfortunately, this option only sets the are in which LaTeX typesets, not the physical output pdf size. You need to load the ‘geometry’ packet to achieve this:

\documentclass[a5paper]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[pass]{geometry}

About swk

I am a computational linguist, teacher of computer science and above all a huge fan of LaTeX. I use LaTeX for everything, including things you never wanted to do with LaTeX. My latest love is lilypond, aka LaTeX for music. I'll post at irregular intervals about cool stuff, stupid hacks and annoying settings I want to remember for the future.
