I am using \cref to refer to different figures in the appendix:


Now I want to create a \pageref{} to it, but I don't know how I can achieve this with multiple pages? So that the first and the last page is given?

    Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. Doesn't \cpageref do the job? – jub0bs Aug 20 '13 at 15:37
  • @Jubobs How to apply this? – user35428 Aug 20 '13 at 15:44
  • @Jubobs I think that to get only first and last pages of a range it is \cpagerefrange which you need to use – Ludovic C. Aug 20 '13 at 15:47

Let say you have three figures respectively on pages 1, 2 and 3. The use of the command


will yield

pages 1, 2 and 3

However the use of the command


will yield

pages 1 to 3

NOTE: These two commands are part of the cleveref package.

  • Thanks! But why does \pageref{} give me just the number and not the word "page"? – user35428 Aug 20 '13 at 16:15

    Because \pageref{} is not coming from the cleveref package. It is the same thing with the \ref{} which gives only some numbers while \cref{} adds some prefix. – Ludovic C. Aug 20 '13 at 16:20
  • Actually, cleveref also automatically compresses page references by default. So \cpageref{figure1,figure2,figure3} in your example will yield "pages 1 to~3". – Toby Cubitt Nov 21 '13 at 16:50
