I have a full page figure that I would like to remove the bottom-center page number from. What I have tried is not working, any suggestions?

\caption{\textbf{{Distribution Plot}}}
\label{fig: Abundance}

My preamble:

\documentclass[a4paper,oneside, 11pt, openany]{memoir}
\usepackage[style=numeric-comp, backend=biber, ibidtracker=constrict]{biblatex}
\usepackage[inner=2.5cm,outer=2.5cm,  tmargin=2.5cm, bmargin=2.5cm]{geometry}

  • Welcome to TeX.SE. When I make your code snippet compilable by prefixing the instructions \documentclass{article}\usepackage{afterpage,graphicx}\begin{document} and affixing the instruction \end{document}, I get a page without a page number. Thus, I can't reproduce the problem you are encountering. (BTW, the instructions \thispagestyle{empty} and \centering inside the figure enviroment are not needed.) Please edit your posting to create an example that generates the problem behavior you're looking to fix. Please also indicate which TeX distribution and which TeX format you use.

  • @user113636 - Unless you provide a fully compilable example that actually gerates the problem you say you're encountering, it's not going to be easy to provide a diagnosis of what's going on, let alone a cure. (Aside: Virtually all of the preamble instructions you've posted have almost certainly nothing to do with the problem at hand.)

  • What more do you need? I am not centering the figure or text around, thats why its unusual

You don't really want afterpage here, the float package allows you to specify different formatting on float pages so for example you could define the center of the footline to be
