I am writing my master thesis with a template that I created by myself, and everything seems to be moreorless fine except for the page numbering. I am using two different formats, roman and arabic numerals. The problem is that in the body of the thesis the page numbers only appear in the first page of a new chapter. The following pages of the same chapter have no number. It happens for all chapters I have so far.

In the preamble I used the command \pagenumbering{arabic} When I introduce the first chapter, I specify that the numbering must be arabic from that page on, and set the counter to 1. The counter works fine, and so does the table of content when it shows the pages. But when compiling using pdflatex, the page numbers don't show up for pages other than the first page of every chapter. I copied my code here so you can take a look. At the end you'll find a picture which illustrates what I am complaining about.

Inside each chapter's file I modify nothing. I just write sections, subsections and text.

I've tried to modify the page layout and margins as well, but that doesn't seem to be the problem, since the bottom margin si 25 mm, which should be big enough.

I've checked previous answers, manuals and other tutorial pages, such as ShareLaTeX, but none of the solutions I found there works for this. Actually, I've tried even without the arabic numerals and without the counter, and the problem persists.

I would be so glad if someone can tell me what the problem is and how to solve it.

Thanks for your answers.

In ancient manuscripts, another means to divide sentences in into paragraphs was a line break (newline) followed by an initial at the beginning of the next paragraph. An initial is an oversize capital letter, sometimes outdented beyond the margin of text. This style can be seen, for example, in the original Old English manuscript of Beowulf. Typography, though not commonly.[4] Modern English typography usually indicates a new paragraph by indenting the first line. This style can be seen in the (handwritten). Table \ref{table:2} is an example of referenced \LaTeX elements. United States Constitution from 1787. For additional ornamentation, a hedera leaf or other symbol can be added to the inter-paragraph whitespace, or put in the indentation space.

\subsection{Paragraph description}
In ancient manuscripts, another means to divide sentences in into paragraphs was a line break (newline) followed by an initial at the beginning of the next paragraph \cite{jahn1996physics}. An initial is an oversize capital letter, sometimes outdented beyond the margin of text. This style can be seen, for example, in the original Old English manuscript of Beowulf. Outdenting is still used in English typography, though not commonly.[4] Modern English typography usually indicates a new paragraph by indenting the first line. This style can be seen in the (handwritten) United States Constitution from 1787. For additional ornamentation, a hedera leaf or other symbol can be added to the inter-paragraph whitespace, or put in the indentation space.

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Please have a look at How to use pagenumbering in the document? For the other part, we need to see a minimal working example. We don't know what is happening inside a chapter-file. – Johannes_B Jun 9 '15 at 13:36
  • @Johannes_B thanks for your reply. I just added the code of the chapter 2 which generates that PDF. I will now take a look to the question you linked. Thanks. – Voyager Jun 9 '15 at 14:40
  • Putting this together and ignoring all the stuff i don't have, i see the page numbers. – Johannes_B Jun 9 '15 at 14:46
  • @Johannes_B what is all the stuff you don't have? You mean most of the packages in the preamble and geometry modifications? – Voyager Jun 9 '15 at 14:50
  • 1
    No, that i have. But i don't have your stuff you are inputting. There is a quite simple mechanical algorithm to find the cause of some behaviour, it is described in Preparing a minimal working example. It is so simple, that everybody using LaTeX should know how to do it ;-) – Johannes_B Jun 9 '15 at 15:12
