Changing page margins for Code Listing doesn't work

Postby GuyL44 » Sat Oct 26, 2013 11:49 am

Hey there,

I'm writing a document that has a few Code Listings inserted into it. It's in the "Article (Hebrew)" format - which, as far as I know, isn't any different from the standard "Article" - it only has added language support.

Anyway, I'm trying to have only one of the listings start off more to the left than usual - basically to have a negative left page margin, on that specific listing only.

I've tried 3 methods so far, none managed to do the trick:
1. Document->Settings->Listings
I entered the command xleftmargin=-3cm, the program recognizes it, but only changes the comments in the code. Meaning, only on the lines where there's a "%" (the code is set in MATLAB) the negative indentation is performed. The rest of the code stays right where it was.
2. \usepackage{changepage}
This method looked promising, but it didn't work as well. I used the aforementioned package and inserted the proper commands ("{adjustwidth}{-3cm}{}" etc.) and nothing worked. Only simple text (i.e. outside of the Code Listing) was moved. The listing stayed the same.
This one didn't do the trick either. Again, only "plain" text was affected, never the code listing.

Can anyone help me? It's been driving me crazy and I have no idea what I'm doing wrong!
