\cleardoublepage with page number?

Postby demon » Tue Feb 10, 2009 7:57 pm

Hi again,

I just switched to 'twoside', as this is a requirement for my thesis. As far as I know from books there are page numbers on empty pages as well. With \cleardoublepage I won't get a number on the page, how can I change that behaviour to get a number?

it depends on your class and the packages used. Perhaps change the page style empty to plain:
  1. \makeatletter
  2. \let\ps@empty\ps@plain
  3. \makeatother

or to fancy or scrheadings or whatever you are using. packages like fancyhdr and scrpage2 are providing commands to solve this problem.

Perhaps the fancyhdr manual has a solution (Section 15 - Those blank pages, p. 15).
  1. \clearpage{\pagestyle{plain}\cleardoublepage}

This solution depends not on the usage of that package.

\documentclass[cleardoublepage=plain]{scrreprt} is the solution. Thanks! :)

For the next time, please write which document class you use because solutions to problems like this depend crucially on the document class.
