The following MWE produces a Contents page with the roman page number in the footer centre. However, I try to set all the page number locations to be on the outside in both the frontmatter and main matter. This works for all front, main and back matter pages, but not for the ToC page. What causes this and how could it be fixed, i.e. placing the ToC page number on the outside of the page (right on a recto page, left on a verso page)?





\chapter{Front Matter Chapter}

\chapter{Main Matter Chapter}

to alter the plain page style which is used for the contents and similar pages.

    Or just add \thispagestyle{my} After \tableofcontents. That is, if you want to keep the plain style the same for another purpose. Mar 29, 2015 at 0:13

    @Christopher True. But the question did say this was wanted for all pages. I assumed that the contents was just the one-which-doesn't-work-so-far-discovered ;).

    Indeed, I just came across it as an interesting option which could possibly come in handy. Mar 29, 2015 at 0:20
