# empty page style on first page of scrartcl

A document using class scrartcl by default includes a page number on every page, including the first. What is the easiest way to suppress the typesetting of the page number on the first page (which, of course, is always "1")?

• \thispagestyle{empty} right after \maketitle? Jan 22 '21 at 4:49

Change \titlepagestyle to empty:

\renewcommand\titlepagestyle{empty}


Example:

\documentclass
%[titlepage]
{scrartcl}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\title{Title}\author{Author}
\renewcommand\titlepagestyle{empty}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
\lipsum
\end{document}


This works even if you use class option titlepage.

If there is no \maketitle in your document, then you can use \thispagestyle{empty} right after \begin{document}.
