I am working with a

\moderncvstyle{casual} 

template to create my CV. The template includes automatic page numbering, which is styled like this: 1/5, 2/5, 3/5 ....

I don't want this style, I just want plain numbers for each page, like this: 1, 2, 3

However, there is no indication where I can modify the page numbering style.

I can turn off page numbering by using

\nopagenumbers{}

but that's all I can do.

I have tried

\pagenumbers{plain}

which causes the error:

)) (./moderncvcolorblue.sty)
./main.tex:24:Undefined control sequence.
<recently read> \pagenumbers

l.24 \pagenumbers
    {Plain}
uncomment to sup....%
?

I also looked through the moderncvcolorblue.sty file and found nothing that indicates page numbers in any way. Equally so for the other sty files I searched.

Please do you have any ideas how I can modify the page number style?

Many thanks.

  • You need to read moderncv.cls. There you'll find \thepage/\pageref{lastpage} which produces the page number from the total number of pages.

  • \renewcommand{\thepage}{\arabic{page}} for example in the preamble of the document should do, or, if available, \pagenumbering{arabic} right at the document start

  • @ChristianHupfer, the OP wants to change the format defined on that page style.

  • @Sigur: the \renewcommand style should do, \pagenumbering{arabic} as well or am I completely misled?

  • @ChristianHupfer, since the class is making use of \thepage/\pageref{lastpage} inside the page style I guess that your suggestion will not change the effect 1/5...

I don't know why, but I don't get the page numbers printed (although they should be there).

For a reference of the issue, see Page numbers with moderncv package on MacTeX 2014 don't show.

I assume that you have some packages older than mines.

Anyway, to have the numbers as you want them in the moderncv style, add the following lines in your preamble:

\nopagenumbers
\AtEndPreamble{%
  \AtBeginDocument{%
          \newlength{\pagenumberwidth}%
          \settowidth{\pagenumberwidth}{\color{color2}\addressfont\itshape\thepage}%
          \fancypagestyle{plain}{%
            \fancyfoot[r]{\parbox[b]{\pagenumberwidth}{\color{color2}\pagenumberfont\thepage}}}
          \pagestyle{plain}}}

  • @Sigur - I investigated the moderncv.cls file but could not find \thepage/\pageref{lastpage} There was only a reference to \hypersetup

In the standard casual template there are no page numbers. Anyway, regardless you can add simple page numbers by putting

\fancyfoot[r]{\thepage}

just after \begin{document}. This prints the page number in the lower right hand corner.

Sample output

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv} 

\moderncvstyle{casual}  

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\address{street and number}{postcode city}{country}
\phone[mobile]{+1~(234)~567~890}                   
\phone[fixed]{+2~(345)~678~901}
\phone[fax]{+3~(456)~789~012}
\email{[email protected]}

  • In the standard casual template there should be page numbers. I don't know why, with the same package (1.5.1), I used to get page numbers a few time ago, but I don't get them anymore... See also tex.stackexchange.com/q/207374/27635 Commented Dec 31, 2014 at 15:43
