# [texhax] LaTeX Page Regestration Problem

Have my book manuscript all set, but can not figure out why the margins for
left & right are reversed, with the wide margin on outside & thin margin
inside. Also, the print on front & back do not align - when looking at outer
edge of a page, the type of the even side is about a quarter of an inch shy
of that of the odd side and about 1/8" higher.

I am hoping that there is a simple solution, my wife who's a scientist
initially set LaTeX up for me, but she can't figure it out. So, I contacted
several LaTeX support Forums and a type setting expert agreed to fix the
problem for a fee. I sent him a snippet of my project and he added some crop
marks (of questionable value to me at this point), and then put me on hold.
I have not heard back from him and it appears he doesn't know how to solve
the problems.

Managed to get everything else looking decent - 650 page memoir with 149 eps
pictures! Want to print some presentable drafts without these problems,
though. The paper is 8.5 X 11 and the problem is visible in DVI. Here is how
it's set up now:

\documentclass[final, leqno]{book}
\usepackage{natbib}
\usepackage{amsmath, amssymb, amsfonts}
\usepackage{epsfig}
\usepackage{graphics}
\usepackage{color}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage{rotating}
\usepackage{lscape}
\usepackage{latexsym}
\usepackage{CJK}
\usepackage{pinyin}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage[outercaption]{sidecap}
\usepackage{ccaption}

\makeindex

\title{------- }

\end{document}

Thanks for any help,

Don
