How to increase the size of the margins?

Hi,

I want to print out and bind about 20 chapters of an exercise book so I can reference them more quickly when training. The problem is, the margins are so small that when I try to bind the pages I lose the first word or two of every line.

Is there a way I can increase the size of the margins using Sigil so I can get around this problem?

The only method that might work is to go to the document stylesheet in Sigil's Styles directory and add this code to the very bottom of the stylesheet:

body {
margin-left: 1.5in;
margin-right: 1.5in;
}

Including the above code into the epub CSS should increase left and right margins to 1.5 inches. You can adjust this to your own preference.

or convert the epub to docx using calibre then you have all the MS word pagination, page numbering, header, footers, and margin control tools available. docx is arguably a better format for generating hard copy pages

Thanks for the suggestions. I should have thought of using Calibre to change the format!

@PKFFW: Also check out Jellby's Prince Calibre plugin, which allows you to generate great-looking PDF files with the external Prince library.

It's quite likely the EPUB already has two stylesheets, a short one containing the basic page margins and a longer one containing document-specific stuff. But an EPUB knows little of pagination, so specifing an efficient gutter isn't going to be possible.

I assume you received this document in EPUB format? Creating a document intended for print in this format would be bizzare.

Will do, thanks for the suggestion.

Yes, I purchased it in epub and at the time I didn't really think I might want to quickly and easily reference various pages on a regular basis.
