Date: November 21, 2006 8:24:45 AM CET
The package below has been updated on tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your favorite mirror. Tnx, Jim Hefferon Saint Michael's College ...................................................................... The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: savetrees Author's name: Scott Pakin Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/savetrees Summary description: Pack as much text as possible onto each page of a LaTeX document License type: lppl Announcement text:
The goal of the savetrees package is to pack as much text as possible onto each page of a LaTeX document. Admittedly, this makes the document far less attractive. Nevertheless, savetrees is a simple way to save paper when printing draft copies of a document. It can also be useful when trying to meet a tight page-length requirement for a conference or journal submission. Version 1.2 of savetrees adds code to discourage TeX from permitting paragraphs to end with a lone word. It also sets the top and bottom margins to nonzero values because that was too ugly even for savetrees. Finally, this version of savetrees improves the check for \chapter-based document classes, making it more robust.

## savetrees – Optimise the use of each page of a LaTeX document

The goal of the savetrees package is to pack as much text as possible onto each page of a document. Admittedly, this makes the document far less attractive. Nevertheless, savetrees is a simple way to save paper when printing draft copies of a document. It can also be useful when trying to meet a tight page-length requirement for a conference or journal submission.

Most of the package options cover specific modifications to typesetting rules, but there are also options subtle, moderate and extreme options for the “broad brush” approach.
