# Title page format

I'm using \documentclass{report}

On the \titlepage, how can I write the \author and the \date section in the down-left corner?

Thank you!

• There are \maketitle (that print \title and \author automatically in a fixed format) and \begin{titlepage} whatever you want in free format \end{titlepage}. In this case seems that you need the second approach, but it is not clear in your question.

• OK, so I cannot have either \author, \date or \title in a free format? Apr 24 '20 at 18:05
• There are tricks to extract \author,\date and \title in any place of the document, including the title page, and to change \maketitle format, but if you need this information only in the title page with your own format, it is unnecessary mess.

• You also can take a look at the titling package, which provides tools to customise the \maketitle command. Apr 24 '20 at 18:51
