Not numbering title page and abstract

Postby enningo » Mon Apr 07, 2008 7:52 pm

After unsuccessfully searching FAQs I turn here for help.

I don't want LyX/LaTeX to number my first number of pages in my report, these pages are title page, abstract page and acknowledgements page. Furthermore I want the #1 page to be the first page of the actual report.

Also is it possible to get "i", "ii", "iii", "iv", "v" numbering for the first pages?

Any help is greatly appreciated! I've only been using LyX and here therefore no experience with the "coding" side of LaTeX.

Have a look at:

  1. \pagestyle{empty} % Use for title page, or use
  2. \begin{titlepage}
  3. ...
  4. \end{titlepage}
  5.  
  6.  
  7. \pagestyle{plain} % No headers, just page numbers
  8. \pagenumbering{roman} % Roman numerals
  9. \setcounter{page}{2}

In LyX, insert ERT and put
  1. \pagenumbering{roman}

after your title and author for lower case roman numerals (Roman for I, II, III etc.) and at the beginning of your first chapter, put
  1. \pagenumbering{arabic}

to start with arabic numerals.

E.g. I like to fill in a page break before my first chapter and put the ERT command right after it and before the chapter title. This is not needed (it depeds on the document class you use, though), I just find it quite well arranged this way.

To suppress any headlines, page numbers and so on, fill in ERT with
  1. \thispagestyle{empty}
in the needed places (e.g. close to your title etc.).

Hello all,

in addition to this question on page numbering I have a page numbering problem as well:

my document starts roman and after Table of Contents is altered to arabic. Now the following happens:
the first page of ToC is roman and the second arabic.

Does anyone know how to solve this?

In addition to this I would like to have my complete footer on the first page of a chapter (not the header) but that he wón't do either..

Thanks in advance!

Coen

Hi Coen,

welcome to the LaTeX Community board!

Concerning the ToC, write \pagenumbering{arabic} after beginning the first chapter (that begins a new page!) or write just \newpage or \clearpage before \pagenumbering{arabic}, otherwise the second page of the ToC will be affected.

Considering the other problem, what package do you use for headers and footers? None, fancyhdr or scrpage2? (Btw. do you use LyX?)
With fancyhdr it can by made by \fancypagestyle{plain}{...}, see fancyhdr documentation 7 Redefining plain style.

Great! problem solved!
this is my first encounter with LaTeX (no Linux) and until now I'm very happy compared to word-experiences in the past.

thanks!

Hi,

Though this topic is a little old, I have a related question:

I'm writing my dissertation in Lyx. My abstract is longer than one page and it gets a page # 2 on the second page of the abstract. I tried \thispagestyle{empty} at different places but it's not going away.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Tamas

Hi Tamas,

it would be consistent to number the second page. All chapters and also table of contents and lists of figures and tables act in such a way, keeping just the first page in a plain style.

However, you can use \pagestyle{empty} before the abstract and switch the page style afterwards to the normal body page style.

Btw. for new questions feel free to open a new topic, instead of attaching to an older one.
