I am using the report class. I want my abstract, acknowledgements and table of contents to be in the table of contents and its page number to be roman numerals. Then I want the rest after that to be in numbers. I use the code below but I have no page number on my abstract. It only shows on table of content. I dont know how to use book class because if I change the function from report to book I get a big fat error. Below code and pictures.

    Which big fat error do you get with book? Is it complaining about the missing abstract environment?. Your document is incomplete

  • abstract uses titlepage, which is using empty page style

By default report uses titlepage option or better \@titlepagetrue (that is set right from the beginning, so titlepage as option is not set explicitly) -- this has a side effect on the definition of abstract (code from report.cls,

  \newenvironment{abstract}{%
      \titlepage
      \null\vfil
      \@beginparpenalty\@lowpenalty
      \begin{center}%
        \bfseries \abstractname
        \@endparpenalty\@M
      \end{center}}%
     {\par\vfil\null\endtitlepage}

Now, \titlepage itself uses \thispagestyle{empty}, so there will be no page number shown.

A patch with

\xpatchcmd{\titlepage}{\thispagestyle{empty}}{\pagestyle{plain}}{}{}%

cures this problem.

Please note that book.cls does not have an abstract environment.

    Perhaps, it is better to copy over the definition of abstract to a file using book instead the other way round

    I focused on the abstract issue ... the other issues are exercises to the O.P.

  • why does it page number abstract and table of contents as i ?

    @kong: That's what you requested (see the beginning of your question) : \pagenumbering{roman}, i.e. lower case roman numbers.

    @kong: titlepage resets the page number at the end of the environment, so does abstract as well. See the update, please
