I am using this template for my book but am unable to correct page numbering for chapters. In TOC, it shows page 1 but actually, the chapter starts on page 2. I want chapter 1 to start on page 1.


  • Please write a minimal working example (in the post itself, not an external link). See link for more details what it means.

  • But it has too many subfiles and I can't post all that's why I used the overleaf link.

  • Thats why we ask for a MWE. Leave all the unnecessary subfiles and what not out. Maybe you even figure out the mistake on your own this way.

  • @HadiMalik Pretty much all you need is the \documentclass... \begin{document} \tableofcontents \chapter{First} \end{document} May 8, 2022 at 16:51

Locate chapter10.1.sty in \fancyBook\template\fancyBook\local\lib\

Change the #36 line from spread upwards, to spread upwards*, to prevent the start of a new page.
