This question already has an answer here:

I have several pdfs included in my tex file (actually its a song book). Unfortunately the pdfs are hiding the page numbers:


Is there a possibility to lay the page numbers over the graphics?

Thanks in advance!

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Assuming that \includepdf belongs to the pdfpages package, it uses by default an option pagecommand={\thispagestyle{empty}}. To get the page numbers, this option should be changed. For example, the command


includes all pages from the file pdfin.pdf and prints the page numbers according to pagestyle plain.
