2. How can I move a table to the left when flushleft won't work?

Do you have some example code (in the form of a code snippet, or preferably an MWE) that illustrates why (2) doesn't work? –  Werner Oct 12 '11 at 22:10

You can typeset the page numbers in Roman numerals using one of the following two ways. Either use

\renewcommand{\thepage}{\Roman{page}}


or

\pagenumbering{Roman}


in your document preamble. The latter command \pagenumbering is defined as follows:

\def\pagenumbering#1{%
\global\c@page \@ne \gdef\thepage{\csname @#1\endcsname \c@page}}


This sets the page counter to one globally (\global\c@page \@ne) and then defines the page counter typesetting/output \thepage to be the command sequence formatting of whatever is supplied in argument #1 (Roman in this case).

Or \pagenumbering{Roman} in the document, which is actually better. –  egreg Oct 12 '11 at 22:21
