How do I add a footer in LyX file when using IEEE Transactions class?


1 Answer 1


First change the Document > Settings... > Page Layout and change the page style to fancy:

Then add to your Document > Settings... > LaTeX Preamble

\fancyfoot[L]{Left footer}
\fancyfoot[C]{Center footer}
\fancyfoot[R]{Right footer}

% Update \maketitle to change page style for first page
  \thispagestyle{fancy}% Title page has fancy

enter image description here

The adjustment of \maketitle adds the footer to the first page, which has a different style based on the IEEE document class. If you don't want it, then you can just remove that part of the code.

  • Two questions: How to remove the top line? And why do I get the footer on all pages?

    @zygimantus: To remove the top line (or header rule), add \renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0pt} to the preamble. You didn't specify where you want the footers to appear, so my solution suggests it to appear on all pages. Where do you want it?

  • I want the footer on the first page only.

  • @zygimantus: Okay, then change the page layout heading style back to "Default".

    @zygimantus: Change the page layout heading style to "fancy" and add \pagestyle{headings} at the end of the preamble.
