Right now, I am using the following fancy headers as required by my school's department policy. However, when I look at the footer, it has a number for each page in the middle of my footer label. I want to move the page number to the bottom right or completely remove it from the bottom middle of the footer. I added the page number to the top right, which I like, but it still remains in the bottom middle as well. I followed the steps on this page: Position of page numbers

but it only removes my current header/footer information, which is not helpful. I only want to remove the page lettering in the bottom middle of the page. Here is the code I'm using currently for my fancy header/footer.

This part is in the package inclusion area:

\usepackage{fancyhdr} %%For headers/footers
\pagestyle{fancy} %%For fancy headers

This part is in the document:

\fancyhead[L]{M 414 - DETERMINISTIC MODELS } %%Header
\rhead{Lecture Notes}
\fancyfoot[L]{NAME INFO - UNIVERSITY OF MONTUCKY: MATH DEPARTMENT} %Footer
\rhead{}
\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{1pt}

%Fix headers on Table of Contents and List of Figures:
\fancypagestyle{plain}{
\fancyhead{}
\fancyfoot{}
\fancyhead[L]{M 414 - DETERMINISTIC MODELS} %%Header
\fancyhead[R]{Lecture Notes}
\fancyfoot[L]{NAME INFO - UNIVERSITY OF MONTUCKY: MATH DEPARTMENT} %Footer
\rhead{}
\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{1pt}
}

\rhead{\thepage}

I'm not sure to understand exactly what you are trying to achieve.

Probably this code is what you want:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{fancyhdr} %%For headers/footers

\usepackage{blindtext} % only for the example


\fancyhf{}
\fancyhead[L]{M 414 - DETERMINISTIC MODELS} %%Header
\fancyhead[R]{\thepage}
\fancyfoot[L]{NAME INFO - UNIVERSITY OF MONTUCKY: MATH DEPARTMENT} %Footer
\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{1pt}

\pagestyle{fancy} %%For fancy headers


%Fix headers on Table of Contents and List of Figures:
\fancypagestyle{plain}{}

\begin{document}

\Blinddocument

\end{document}

Output:

enter image description here

In the code, \fancyhf{} clears the contents of both header and footer, so that with the lines

\fancyhead[L]{M 414 - DETERMINISTIC MODELS} %%Header
\fancyhead[R]{\thepage}
\fancyfoot[L]{NAME INFO - UNIVERSITY OF MONTUCKY: MATH DEPARTMENT} %Footer

you can add what you want at specific places.

The line

\fancypagestyle{plain}{}

is to make plain pages have the same headers and footers as fancy ones.

  • Your code works perfectly. I was able to narrow it down even further. I kept everything in my code EXACTLY how it was and commented out parts of your code until I found the one piece that made it work. The key is this: \fancyhf{} Which needs to precede \begin{document} Originally, my code had that \fancyhf{} tag, but it followed my \begin{document} tag, so it didn't work correctly. Everything works perfectly now.

karlkoeller had the correct idea.

I was able to narrow it down even further. I kept everything in my code EXACTLY how it was and commented out parts of your code until I found the one piece that made it work.

\fancyhf{} 

Which needs to precede

\begin{document} 

Originally, my code had that

\fancyhf{} 

tag, but it followed my

\begin{document} 

tag, so it didn't work correctly. Everything works perfectly now with the simple addition of the

\fancyhf{}

This works:

    \pagestyle{fancy}{%
    \fancyhf{}%
    \lhead{M 414 - DETERMINISTIC MODELS} %%Header
    \rhead{Lecture Notes\quad\thepage}%
    \cfoot{\small NAME INFO - UNIVERSITY OF MONTUCKY: MATH DEPARTMENT} %Footer
    \renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{1pt}%
     }%

  • Doesn't seem to work with \fancyfoot . I kind of like the line separating the paper from the footer. Is there a way to do that or is \cfoot the only resolution?
