# Komascript style for empty page after page with \part title, or how to get page numbers there cleanly

My question is very similar to this question, and solutions there might work, but I'm using KOMA-script. I'd like page numbers on every page, including empty ones. To this end, I passed cleardoublepage=plain as an argument to the scrbook class. This has the intended effect for empty pages introduced before \chapter, but not for empty pages introduced after \part.

\documentclass[cleardoublepage=plain]{scrbook}
\begin{document}
\part{One}
\chapter{One-A}
Hello
\chapter{Two-A}
Hello
\end{document}


Several solutions are offered in the linked question, but all seem rather hackish to me, boiling down to a temporary redefinition of \empty. Is there a KOMA-script specific solution? \partpagestyle defines the Page style for the pages with \part titles. (KOMA-script 2012-07-22 user manual, page 71). Is there a KOMA-script way to define the page style for the empty page after the page with the \part title?

• With scrbook the correct patch is \patchcmd{\partheademptypage}{empty}{plain}{}{} – egreg Oct 2 '13 at 14:21

In scrbook the possible creation of the empty page following a part starting page is handed to the command \partheademptypage whose definition is

\newcommand*{\partheademptypage}{%
\if@twoside\if@openright
\null%
\thispagestyle{empty}%
\newpage
\fi\fi
}


So you have two choices: either \renewcommand or a simpler patch:

\usepackage{etoolbox}

(use the page style you prefer instead of plain).
• so simple with etoolbox. Define a new desired pagestyle and bingo!!! thanks a lot!!! – scmg Jul 19 '16 at 4:33
• \renewcommand*{\partheademptypage}{} was the way to go for me so that the page was treated like a normal page in scrbook. Any dangers you see here? I visually checked the outcome and at least that is was I desired. – mkastner Oct 13 '17 at 8:14
