# In LYX, how can I eliminate or change page numbering in my Appendix Chapter*?

I have tried everything suggested on the web but nothing has worked - yet!

I am writing a thesis with 6 numbered Chapters. For page numbering I am using

\pagenumbering{arabic}


and

\pagestyle{headings}


starting at Chapter 1, which comes out like this:

After my six Chapters I add my 'Bibliography', and after that 'Appendices' as an unnumbered *Chapter. However, the page numbers showing in my Appendices have kept in 'memory' the Bibliography (previous) chapter. See here:

I would like to change this so that it shows 'Appendices....page number' or just 'page number' or as a last resort by eliminating page numbering in the Appendices *Chapter altogether.

• How did you add appendix in your lyx document? Did you add it as a separate chapter or via document-->start appendix here? – Yorgos Jun 16 '15 at 14:35
• I added it as a separate Chapter and indluded it in the main document. – Ella Jay Jun 16 '15 at 20:38
• I believe that you should choose the second method. LyX has an "automatic" way to set appendices, which can be seen as a separate document class. But you can try to enter the following commands before your "chapter with appendix": '\cleardoublepage' (if you use a book document class)and then '\pagenumbering{roman or arabic}', '\setcounter{page}{the number you want your appendix to start}' – Yorgos Jun 17 '15 at 5:51

I just solved the case myself. The solution is to change the \pagestyle to {plain} at the section I only want numbers showing. My code which now does this is shown below simplified:

\begin{document}


Include Chapter 1

...

Include Chapter 6

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Bibliography}

\pagestyle{plain}


Include Appendices

\end{document}


Thanks you anyhow!
