I want to insert diamond around page numbers of my thesis file. I am using thesis documentclass. The pages numbers appear on top right corner.

  • Where did you get that document class? – Sigur Nov 4 '14 at 12:23
  • I don't remember but few months ago I downloaded the thesis template from internet and the documentclass is Thesis. By the way, if you google it you can find several links to download Thesis class. – mani Nov 4 '14 at 12:29

    So it will be hard to help you. We need to read your code exactly as it is. Or at least, tell us if you are inserting header using fancyhdr for example. – Sigur Nov 4 '14 at 12:30
  • \fancyhead{} % Clears all page headers and footers \rhead{\thepage} % Sets the right side header to show the page number \lhead{} % Clears the left side page header \pagestyle{fancy} % Finally, use the "fancy" page style to implement the FancyHdr headers – mani Nov 4 '14 at 12:35
  • This is all what I can search about headers from my code – mani Nov 4 '14 at 12:36

With tikz and shapes.geometric library

\documentclass[11pt, oneside]{thesis}
\fancyhead{} % clear all header fields 
\fancyfoot{} % clear all footer fields

\newcommand{\diam}[1]{\tikz\draw (0,0)node[shape aspect=1,diamond,draw,,inner sep=2pt]{#1};}



\chapter{chapter one}
\section{section one}


The result

enter image description here

  • Thanks. I have tried it, but it didn't work. Is there any typo in defining new command? I can see two consecutive commas , after draw and before inner – mani Nov 5 '14 at 3:56
