Re: Page numbers beside headers (LyX)

I will check out the top/bottom alignment but for horizontal alignment
moves the page nmber LEFT and -0.5 is no different.

I guess the reqs are simply no more than 0.5".

Hmm, try "\hspace*{...}" (notice the asterisk), maybe it will do the trick. If not then I am afraid I will not be able to help you further with this matter. Sorry...

No luck with that either. Thanks for the attempt though. Any other suggestions out there?

Somehow I don't see the problem.
1. \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,twoside,english]{report}
2. \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
3. \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
4. \usepackage{babel}
5. \usepackage[%
8. inner=3cm,
9. outer=4cm,
10. vmargin=3cm
11. ]{geometry}
12. \usepackage{fancyhdr}
13. \usepackage{blindtext}
14.
15. \fancyhf{}
18. \pagestyle{fancy}
19.
20. \begin{document}
21. \blinddocument
22. \end{document}

Please enlighten me by a complete minimal example which you didn't provide until now.

I'm trying to define the header (and footer) to ensure the page number is no more than 0.5 inches from any edge (so top right it should be 'square' and the bottom 0.5" from bottom edge). As it was, I was using \qquad\thispage to approx. align the page number so it "looks" right. The code posted with \hspace{0.5} causes the page number to shift 0.5" to the left instead of to the right.

I'm using LyX and am only beginning to the understand the Latex typesetting functions so I'm not sure what else I can provide other than the class file from http://sites.google.com/site/nathanandrewmiller/cuboulderthesisusinglyx
I'd be happy to post anything that could help though. Thanks for trying.

I must have missed the detail about LyX until the topic has been split. So I'm afraid I can't advise any further.

Can you, please, create an example .lyx file, put it together with all additional necessary files in a ZIP archive and attach it here?

Here is a LyX file and a .tex file with appropriate .cls file. Thanks!

This is oneside document, so, for starters, let's try with something like this in the preamble:
1. \usepackage{fancyhdr}
2.
3. \fancyhf{} % Delete current setting for header and footer
4.
5. \fancypagestyle{main}{% page style for normal pages
6. \fancyhfoffset[R]{0.5in}
9. \renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0pt}
10. }
11.
12. \fancypagestyle{plain}{
13. \fancyhfoffset[R]{-0.5in}
14. \fancyhead{} % Get rid of headers and footers on plain pages...
15. \fancyfoot[C]{\hspace*{0.75in}\thepage}
16. \renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0pt} % ...and of the lines
17. \renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0pt}
18. }
19.
20. \fancypagestyle{empty}{
21. \fancyhead{} % Get rid of headers and footers on empty pages...
22. \fancyfoot{}
23. \renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0pt} % ...and of the lines
24. \renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0pt}
25. }

And at the beginning of your document, press Ctrl+L and type the following:
1. \pagestyle{main}

Is this satisfactory to you or you had something different in mind?

Yep that does it. I had read that fancyhfoffset wasn't good to use...not sure why but this works except not for the front matter. The front matter is somehow created in the class file I think. Any suggestions for this?
