Chapter 3. Designing Pages

After the previous chapter, formatting text should be easy for us. So, let's turn to whole pages!

In this chapter, we will learn how to:

  • Adjust the margins
  • Change the line spacing
  • Section the document
  • Create a table of contents
  • Design headers and footers
  • Control page breaking
  • Set footnotes and modify their appearance

In learning this, we shall gain a deeper insight into classes and packages.

Defining the overall layout

We shall write an example document spanning over several pages. This will be our test object for modifying margins, line spacing, headers, footers, and more.
