Forum How do I...?

place a figure centered in page in a simmetrical page spread


In a symmetrical page spread, as below, I want to be able to place some big figures (wider than body) horizontally centered in the page.

Here the red box is the body border. The figure in the right page has been manually positioned (position:relative; left: -12.5mm;) to be centered in the page (filling the whole body, over its padding). But the same adjust on the left figure placed it, obviously, out of place.

How can I place figures horizontally centered in reference to the page, not body, in a spread layout like this?

Thanks & regards.

Perhaps you could use "margin-outside: -12.5mm"?
Hi again,

Many thanks Mike. It was: float: inside; margin-inside: -12.5mm;

Thanks & regards.
