Change Margins Latex Bibliography Reference

I have seen this happen too, and the easiest way to fix it in an existing document, is to modify  the Word Style "Endnote Bibliography" and make sure this is the style assigned to the whole of the bibliiography and to a trailing extra paragraph.


To do this (at least in Word 2010 - I haven't had much experience with this in 2013) --  Open the list of styles (in 2010, this is the little corner below the styles horizontal list on the home ribbon), it will open as a list.  Now select one of the references and see which of the styles it has adopted, -If it isn't "Endnote Bibliography", then you should apply that style. Now edit the line to appear the way you want it to appear using format paragraph settings and remove any page break assignments.  right click in the paragraph and choose "styles" and Update "endnote bibliography" to match selection. Select all of the paragraphs in the bibliography, and apply this style to them.  Also make sure there is a paragraph between the header paragraph and the bibliography and after the bibliography that is also assigned to this word style.  


In EndnoteX7, new "Endnote Bibliography" and "Endnote Bibliography title" style are added to the list of styles in Word as soon as a bibliography is generated.  It might be easier to delete the bibliography, add two paragraphs after the header, and make sure the paragraphs are either normal, or predefined as  "Endnote Bibliography" 


To avoid it happening I always have a Body text/normal paragraph following my manually inserted Bibliography heading.  And this random "pickup" of the wrong paragraph formating doesn't appear to happen.  -- I find it happens in documents that already have a number of styles defined -- like in a thesis, than in a clean document. Particularly those that were originally formated with X6 and then with X7.   I have not been able to put my finger on the exact conditions, but it happened to at least one of my students with Endnote X7 (where the new undocumented feature is to utilize these "word style templates" was introduced - this isn't available in older versions of Endnote).  



(long time Endnote user)

The page dimensions in a LaTeX document are highly configurable and the geometry package offers a simple way to change the length and layout of different elements such as the paper size, margins, footnote, header, orientation, etc.


Suppose you have to create a document in a4paper and the text shouldn't exceed 6 in width and 8 in height. To create it with geometry is easy, include this one line in the preamble:

The parameters passed to the command determine the layout. In this case a4paper establishes the paper size and the total parameter determines the size of the text area.

[edit]Paper size, orientation and margins

Paper size, orientation and margins are the most common page elements that must be changed depending on the type of document. To set the desired values there are two ways, either you pass them as parameters to the statement as in the example above, or use a command in the preamble.

For example, let's create a document with legal paper size, landscape orientation and a 2 in margin:

Also, you can achieve the same in a slightly different way

As you see, the parameters are comma separated. For a complete list of predefined paper sizes see the reference guide. The second parameter is the orientation, its default value is portrait. Finally, each margin is set to 2 in.

[edit]Fine tuning your LaTeX page dimensions

The regular LaTeX page dimensions are presented (with example values) in picture at the right of this section.

The geometry package provides a flexible and easy interface to change page dimensions. You can change the page layout with intuitive parameters:

Next is a list of document elements whose length can be changed. The parameters have to be written in the form , use standard LaTeX units. (mm, cm, pt, in)

Corresponds to element 8 in the figure.
Element 7 in the figure.
Depends on other parameters, by default defines the dimensions of the Body, but can be combined with the , , and commands to change the dimensions of Header, the Body, the Footer and the Margin Notes altogether.
, ,
These three parameters change the length of the left margin. Elements 1 and 3 in the figure, combined.
, ,
These three parameters change the length of the right margin. Elements 9 and 10 in the figure, combined.
These two parameters represent elements 2 and 6 in the figure, combined.
These two parameters set the distance from the bottom edge of the document to its baseline.
Height of the header
Separation between the bottom of the text (baseline) and the top of the footnote. Element 11 in the figure.
Distance between the baseline of the text and the baseline of the footnote.
Width of the margin notes. Element 10 in the figure.

The paper size can be set to any size you need by means of the command .

Let's see an example with some of the aforementioned options:

Here the text area, the left margin and the top margin are set. The right and bottom margins are automatically computed to fit the page.
