As the the title suggests, I want to have something like Corollary 1.I (first corollary of the first chapter)

I want the chapter counter be in Arabic numbers, and the corollary counter be in Roman numbers.

Before, when I was using ntheorem, I used to use the command \theoremnumbering{Roman}.

I tried to read what thmtools documentation suggest, but I can't understand.

my corollary environment is simply defined as follows:

    numberwithin=chapter ]{cor}

If you can help me also with the equivalence of \theoremindent (it adds margin to the theorem environment). If there is not a simple equivalence, I will pose that as a separate question.

Once the Corollary environment cor is defined you can reset the number by redefining \thecor. In your case putting \show\thecor after the definition reveals

> \thecor=macro:
->\thechapter .\arabic {cor}.
l.9 \show\thecor

in the log file. So the format you wish for can be obtained by replacing \arabic by \Roman here as follows


Sample output







\chapter{A chapter}

  A theorem.

  A corollary.

  A lemma.

  Another theorem.
