# list of figures and page numbering

I made a list of figures at the end of my document and i have a problem. List of figures is longer than one page and i don't want any page numbers on any of these pages.

Unfortunately comands below make page number dissapear only on the last page of the list of figures. How can i remove page numbers on every page of list of figures?

\thispagestyle{empty}
\listoffigures

You have to locally override the behavior of \chapter* that issues \thispagestyle{plain}.

A hack is to say

\cleardoublepage
\begingroup
\makeatletter
\let\ps@plain\ps@empty
\makeatother

\pagestyle{empty}
\listoffigures
\cleardoublepage
\endgroup


at the point where you want the list of figures.

A more abstract way is to define a command in the preamble:

\makeatletter
\newcommand{\emptypage}[1]{%
\cleardoublepage
\begingroup
\let\ps@plain\ps@empty
\pagestyle{empty}
#1
\cleardoublepage}
\makeatletter


and then say, for instance

\emptypage\tableofcontents

\emptypage\listoffigures

THIS worked flawlesly! Thank you. –  71GA Jan 28 '13 at 22:13

Try these:

\listoffigures\pagestyle{empty}


or

\pagestyle{empty}\listoffigures


should work. To start numbering again use \pagestyle{plain} after some section command or chapter, whatever.

edit: here is a minimal code to test the effect inserting the command before/after the \listoffigures.

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{report}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
\lipsum[1]
\newpage
\lipsum[2]
\listoffigures\thispagestyle{empty} \newpage

@sigur: surely you need the \pagestyle{empty} before \listoffigures –  wasteofspace Jan 27 '13 at 17:20
@Sigur Impossible: \listoffigures issues \chapter*, which in turn issues \thispagestyle{plain}. So if you put \pagestyle{empty} before it, it will be overridden; if you put it after it will hold only for the last page of the list. –  egreg Jan 27 '13 at 22:10
@egreg @Sigur An MWE might be handy, because dozens of classes and packages redefine \listoffigures. –  mafp Jan 27 '13 at 22:39
