# Prevent abstract environment to reset pagenumbering

I use \documentclass[12pt, a4paper]{report} for my thesis. I have three parts, each with an abstract. Whenever I put an abstract, the page numbering resets to 1. I would like to continue with the numbering it had before placing the abstract.

Minimum working example:

\documentclass[12pt, a4paper]{report}

\begin{document}
\title{title}
\maketitle
\tableofcontents

\chapter*{Introduction}

Introduccion

\part{Part 1}
\begin{abstract}
abstract
\end{abstract}

Part1

\part{part 2}
\begin{abstract}
abstract
\end{abstract}

Part2

\part{3}
\begin{abstract}
abstract
\end{abstract}

\end{document}

Can you please provide a minimal working example. I can't reproduce your problem. –  Thorsten May 10 '11 at 15:38
@Thorsten: It is best to provide a link to the minimal working example (MWE) post on the Meta site, especially for new users. See also the Text building blocks thread. –  Martin Scharrer May 10 '11 at 15:45
@Martin Scharrer Thanks, noted! –  Thorsten May 10 '11 at 15:46
@Juan: Welcome to TeX.SX. You can (and should) edit your original question to add such information. I copied it to it for you now. –  Martin Scharrer May 10 '11 at 15:50
thanks a lot ;) –  Juan May 10 '11 at 16:02

It depends on the option of the class titlepage. The default setting is titlepage=true. You can do two things:

\documentclass[12pt, a4paper,notitlepage]{report}


Or redefine abstract:

\makeatletter
\renewenvironment{abstract}{%
\if@twocolumn
\section*{\abstractname}%
\else
\small
\begin{center}%
{\bfseries \abstractname\vspace{-.5em}\vspace{\z@}}%
\end{center}%
\quotation
\fi}
{\if@twocolumn\else\endquotation\fi}
\makeatother

Your first suggestion works fine \documentclass[12pt, a4paper,notitlepage]{report} but I get numbering on the title page too. The second option \makeatletter \@titlepagefalse \makeatother does not work for me. –  Juan May 10 '11 at 16:07
I changed my answer. Sorry –  Marco Daniel May 10 '11 at 16:21
This works great thanks! –  Juan May 10 '11 at 18:44
Could you please explain what the notitlepage option does? –  StrawberryFieldsForever Apr 30 '13 at 15:14
@StrawberryFieldsForever With this option you decide whether the environment titlepage is used or not`. The environment starts a new page and end this page. It also put in onecolumn mode whether you are working with twocolumn or not. –  Marco Daniel Apr 30 '13 at 16:13
