I am creating a chapter of Book. And I used package fancyhdr. And my chapter shows one blank page after \tableofcontents, \listoffigures and \listoftables. But this blank page shows pagenumber on left and contents on right in header. Similarly page after \listoffigures shows pagenumber on left and List of Figures on right in Header. How I can make this page completely blank. How I remove this?.


want to remove below left pageno. and right Contents blank

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Try \thispagestyle{empty}\clearpage after \tableofcontents etc. If this does not work, provide a compilable document please! – user31729 Jan 6 '16 at 18:26
  • Also try \afterpage{\thispagestyle{empty}} from the afterpage package. – John Kormylo Jan 6 '16 at 21:39
  • Hupfer, Thankx for reply . I tried \thispagestyle{empty}\clearpage after \tableofcontents. But it remove only righthandside text (CONTENTS). But did not remove pagenumber from left. I want to remove Left Pagenumber. And want blank page after Contents. – Manpreet Dhiman Jan 7 '16 at 7:33
  • @user93268: Then post the document, not just fragments or screenshots – user31729 Jan 7 '16 at 14:03

I found the best solution to problem that I posted. Usually, when we use Book class to create book, it creates blank page with Contents on right-side and page no. on left-side after Table of Contents page due to fancy header. But we want fancy header on all pages, but don't want to show it on pages that comes after Table of Contents page and List of Figures. Here is a solution. You should use \usepackage{emptypage} in your preamble.

<!-- language: lang-js -->
  % total specifies text width and height should not exceed     170mm,257mm.
% right, bottom margins set automatically
\geometry{a4paper,total={170mm,257mm}, left=20mm, top=20mm}
**\usepackage{emptypage} %remove rightside Contents and Leftside   pageno from page after TableofContents.**
