# Removing page numbering on the Continued float two page figures in Overleaf

I have two pages consisting of two groups of related figures using the floating commands. I want to remove the page number on the second page of these two. I have tried this page using afterpage

and tried this as well using floatpag package but it makes all my other figures grouped and move towards each other which I do not want. So, I only want to remove the page number (page 87 or move this page 87 to the top) of these specific two pages of the two-page floating figures (keep page number 86). Please see the pictures below.

.

• @JohnKormylo I have checked and tried to use it. It does remove the page number, but it removes page 86 instead of 87. I have tried putting \AddThispageHook{\thispagestyle{empty}} before \begin{figure} on the page 86, on the page 87 or both , but still does not remove page number 87. any suggestion? May 16 at 10:32
• An MWE would have been nice, but I'll se what I can do. May 16 at 14:24

As before, \afterpage doesn't work on float pages, and \AddThispageHook only delays one page.

This checks for a specific page number, which is calculated assuming the first float occurs on the next page. (Or you could just insert the right page number for \specialpage.)

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{afterpage}
\usepackage{lipsum}% MWE only

\begin{document}
\begin{figure}[p]
\rule{\textwidth}{0.8\textheight}
\caption{This should be on page 2}
\end{figure}
\begin{figure}[p]
\rule{\textwidth}{0.8\textheight}
\caption{This should be on page 3}
\end{figure}
\edef\specialpage{\the\numexpr \value{page}+1}% \speacialpage=2
\thispagestyle{empty}%
\fi}

\lipsum[1-16]
\end{document}

• It works for me. I applied \edef\... \fi} May 16 at 18:08

I have managed to make it work using the suggestion of @John Kormylo. This is my code:
