I tried this beautiful solution to create a border in the page, now I want to create many pages without contents. The main idea is to print just the border to take notes. I tried many options inside document but nothing has worked yet. The \lipsum[2-20] worked, but I don't want lipsum code.



% A length to control the separation of the text and the frame

% A length to control the height of the minipages used in the header

% A length to control the width of the frame

% Definition of the user commands to fill the header
% Initially they are empty

% Command to build each one of the boxes for the header
% \AUCBox{<width>}{<title>}{<contents>}
% The optional argument controls the height of the minipages;
% default value= \AUCBoxHt 
\begin{flushleft}\footnotesize #3\end{flushleft}

% We define the background: the header and the frame
\begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay]
  ([xshift=-\AUCFrameSep,yshift=-2cm]current page text area.north west|-current page.north west)
  ([xshift=\AUCFrameSep,yshift=-1.5\AUCFrameSep]current page text area.south east);
\node[anchor=north west,xshift=-\the\dimexpr\AUCFrameSep+\fboxrule\relax,yshift=-2cm,inner sep=0pt,outer sep=0pt] at (current page text area.north west|-current page.north west)
  \AUCBox{.175\AUCFrameWd}{Lib Num}{\@ACUlibnum}\kern-\fboxrule%
  \AUCBox{0.125\AUCFrameWd}{Page}{\scshape\thepage\ of \pageref{LastPage}}%

  Description line 1 \\
  Description line 2 \\
  Description line 3 \\
\LibNum{Doc 12345}






PD: Thanks for the border to: Page header with box sections & page border

  • Welcome! \newpage? – cfr Dec 2 '15 at 4:03
  • Actually, \strut\newpage works better. – John Kormylo Dec 2 '15 at 5:11
  • Noup, with strut the page two is empty and if I create three pages all got empties. With \newpage doesn't show anaything. Thanks. – Chrispaz Dec 2 '15 at 16:11
  • Could you clarify why \begin{document} \strut \newpage \strut \newpage \strut \end{document} doesn't meet your specification? It seems to print the border for each page with a \strut on it. I'm confused why this doesn't do the job. – Dai Bowen Dec 5 '16 at 23:47
