I would like to adjust the header of my document - the two first pages should also contain the title of the pages. For the rest of the document it already works, but I have no idea how to just adjust the first two ones without interfering with the other following pages. I already tried the following code:

\usepackage{ifthen}
\lhead{\ifthenelse{\value{page}=1}{\fontsize{8}{5} \selectfont Kurzfassung}}

but with this the header of the following pages are disordered. Thanks A LOT in advance :)!

    Welcome to tex.sx. I'm unable to test at the moment, but if I understand your request correctly, the fancy page style is what you want on the first two pages. If that's correct, you can specify \thispagestyle{fancy} on each of those two pages, with \markboth{<desired header text>}{<desired header text>}` to set the text you want in the header. – barbara beeton May 11 at 3:14
  • @barbarabeeton Yes, \markboth did the trick! Thank you very much! :) – TeXlearner May 11 at 13:29
