# Roman page numbers in appendix in Lyx

I use LyX 2.0.5.1

I have a report with several chapters and 2 appendices. I have roman page numbering before chapter 1 (for table of contents, table of figures, etc) and I have arabic page numbering from chapter 1 until the end. However, I would like my 2 appendices to switch to roman page numbering, starting from i (1 in arabic numbering).

This is the code that was generated by LyX for the 1st appendix:

\begin_layout Standard
\begin_inset Newpage newpage
\end_inset
\end_layout

\begin_layout Chapter
\start_of_appendix
Content of the Appendix 1.
\end_layout


I have tried to add the \pagenumbering{roman} in several places near the start of the appendix chapter but it does not work.

Thank you very much.

Insert an ERT with \clearpage\pagenumbering{roman} just before you start the appendices.
