## Page numbers beside headers (LyX)

Add tags Information and discussion about page layout specific issues (e.g. header and footer lines, page formats, page numbers).

### Re: Page numbers beside headers (LyX)

I will check out the top/bottom alignment but for horizontal alignment
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\fancyhead[R]{\leavevmode\rlap{\hspace{0.5in}\thepage}}
moves the page nmber LEFT and -0.5 is no different.

I guess the reqs are simply no more than 0.5".

Hmm, try "\hspace*{...}" (notice the asterisk), maybe it will do the trick. If not then I am afraid I will not be able to help you further with this matter. Sorry...

No luck with that either. Thanks for the attempt though. Any other suggestions out there?

### Re: Page numbers beside headers (LyX)

Somehow I don't see the problem.
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,twoside,english]{report}\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}\usepackage{babel}\usepackage[%  headheight=14pt,  includeheadfoot,  inner=3cm,  outer=4cm,  vmargin=3cm]{geometry}\usepackage{fancyhdr}\usepackage{blindtext}\fancyhf{}\fancyhead[LE]{\leavevmode\llap{\thepage\hspace{0.5in}}\nouppercase{\leftmark}}\fancyhead[RO]{\leavevmode\nouppercase{\rightmark}\rlap{\hspace{0.5in}\thepage}}\pagestyle{fancy}\begin{document}  \blinddocument \end{document}

Please enlighten me by a complete minimal example which you didn't provide until now.

### Re: Page numbers beside headers (LyX)

I'm trying to define the header (and footer) to ensure the page number is no more than 0.5 inches from any edge (so top right it should be 'square' and the bottom 0.5" from bottom edge). As it was, I was using \qquad\thispage to approx. align the page number so it "looks" right. The code posted with \hspace{0.5} causes the page number to shift 0.5" to the left instead of to the right.

I'm using LyX and am only beginning to the understand the Latex typesetting functions so I'm not sure what else I can provide other than the class file from http://sites.google.com/site/nathanandrewmiller/cuboulderthesisusinglyx
I'd be happy to post anything that could help though. Thanks for trying.

I must have missed the detail about LyX until the topic has been split. So I'm afraid I can't advise any further.

Can you, please, create an example .lyx file, put it together with all additional necessary files in a ZIP archive and attach it here?

### Re: Page numbers beside headers (LyX)

This is oneside document, so, for starters, let's try with something like this in the preamble:
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX

And at the beginning of your document, press Ctrl+L and type the following:
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\pagestyle{main}

Is this satisfactory to you or you had something different in mind?

### Re: Page numbers beside headers (LyX)

Yep that does it. I had read that fancyhfoffset wasn't good to use...not sure why but this works except not for the front matter. The front matter is somehow created in the class file I think. Any suggestions for this?
