I'm writing the abstract for my bachelor thesis. Therefore I use LaTeX. Now I have the structure of my document, but it always prints me a page number on the page. It is only one page and instead of my title (abstract) und my abstract text there should be anything on the page.

The command \pagestyle{empty} should remove all header & footer, but it doesn't work

Here's my Script:

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt,headsepline,smallheadings]{scrartcl}

\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage[applemac]{inputenc}

\typearea{12}
\pagestyle{empty}

\title{Abstract}
\author{}
\date{}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

...TEXT...

\end{document}

\maketitle sets the pagestyle to \titlepagestyle. This can be redefined to be the empty pagestyle by

\renewcommand*{\titlepagestyle}{empty}

Complete example:

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt,headsepline,smallheadings]{scrartcl}

\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage[applemac]{inputenc}

\typearea{12}
\renewcommand*{\titlepagestyle}{empty}


\title{Abstract}
\author{}
\date{}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

...TEXT...

\end{document}

Another way is that: inserting \pagestyle{empty} and, eventually, \thispagestyle{empty} after \maketitle.

    Welcome, that may work, but using the defined interface for robust changes is better. But i would avoid using \pagestyle here, as it goes on till changed, which can be missed easily.
