I have to number the pages in ACM2017 proceedings and I am using the acmart template. However \pagenumbering... commands and preprint option for document class do not work. Any suggestions?

Edit: I am using sigconfdocument class, which is available on the following website: https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template

and as a minimal example in the following link: http://wisec2017.ccs.neu.edu/acmart.zip

  • Welcome to TeX.SE. There are several potential acmart "templates". Please be specific: Which document class do you use? Maybe suggest a website?

  • For the sigchi template \pagenumbering{arabic} switched on the page numbers for me.

Please put \settopmatter{printfolios=true} before \maketitle.


Use \pagestyle{plain} before \begin{document}. If the first page number is not shown, use \settopmatter{printfolios=true} also.

  • Without \settopmatter{printfolios=true} I had no page numbers on any page even with \pagenumbering{arabic} and \pagestyle{plain} added only the printfolios parameter made page numbers appear.
