How to suppress typeset page numbers

Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

When you typeset a document the positioning of page numbers is controlled by the typesetting specification. You can use a package or add commands to the document to override the typesetting specification and remove the page numbers.

Suppress page numbers for the entire document

Using the nopageno package

  1. Add the nopageno package to your document.

No other changes are needed. It is possible that the nopageno package is not compatible with the typesetting specification used by the document. In that case, try using the methods that follow.

Using commands in the document preamble

The empty page style can be used to typeset document without page numbers. Add a command to the document preamble to suppress page numbering for the entire document.

  1. From the Typeset menu, choose Preamble.

  2. Add a new line to the document preamble that contains:


  3. Choose OK to close the dialog.

There are some special pages like the title page or chapter heading pages where the typesetting specification forces the page style. Override this for each individual page using the instructions in the next section.

Suppress page numbering for an individual page

Use a command to override the page style for an individual page. Page numbering will continue as before on the next page of the document.

  1. Place the insertion point on the page for which you want no page number. It is usually best to place the cursor at the beginning of a Body Text paragraph.

  2. Enter an encapsulated TeX field.

  3. In the entry area, type \thispagestyle{empty} and choose OK.
