### Page Number Position in Landscape Format

Hello LaTeX Community,

I use the landscape environment to change the layout of the document. But, the page numbering style fixed at left side of the page, not at the bottom. I want to change the position of the numbering to bottom of the landscape page.I also tried \thispagestyle{plain} for the specific page, but nothing change. Is additional command needs to be written in the preamble for \thispagestyle to be effective? Or other commands should be used? How to do that?

My command is as follows:
\begin{document}\thispagestyle{plain}\begin{landscape}...\end{landscape}\end{document}

I also tried sidewaystable environment with \usepackage{rotating} in the preamble. But the layout of the page changes to a wrong format and the page numbering has no change neither.

Any suggestion is appreciated.

Best,
Lynn

Hi Lynn,

I don't have a solution, just an explanation. The page number is on the "left" side, because the page is part of a portrait format document. It wouldn't make sense to have page numbers in different places within the same document. Just think of a book to have a single landscape page with the page number in the outer margin. The same applies for landscape documents.

\documentclass[landscape]{article}\usepackage{blindtext, pdflscape}\begin{document}\blindtext\end{document}
