I am trying to write an article using TeXstudio and the first page is dedicated for title, name of the author and date. I am numbering the pages in roman from the second page but arabic page numbering started from the title page without any command. How do I remove it?

  • After \begin{document} put \thispagestyle{empty}, but as @GonzaloMedina said, if you provide MWE, then we can easier help you.

    @Zarko I think it would be more suited after \maketitle ;-)

  • I am really sorry sir I just started learning LATEX and came to know that such a website exists only today. So I did not know how to put forth my question.

If you are using the standard article class, the titlepage class option takes care of this:


\author{The Author}
\title{The title}



test text
