 +====== Cramped ======
 +In [[c:​composing|composing]],​ when it is necessary to get in a given quantity of [[m:​matter|matter]] into a certain number of pages, which are hardly sufficient to contain it, [[w:​white-page|whites]] are used sparingly, [[s:​short-page|short pages]] are avoided, and the matter is spaced [[s:​set-up-close|closer]] than common; it is then said to be cramped. A [[c:​compositor|compositor]] is also said to cramp his matter when he does not put whites proportionate to the openness of the work, or to the size of the letter when there is no restriction.
