# Page numbering style

I want to use a "roman" page numbering in tableofcontents, listoffigures, listoftables and in the chapter called "simboli" and, then, restart the page numbering with "arabic" style in the following chapters.

I've used the following code

\begin{document}
\input{cap/title}
\newpage
\pagenumbering{Roman}
\tableofcontents
\newpage
\listoffigures
\newpage
\listoftables
\newpage
\input{cap/Simboli}
\setcounter{table}{0}
\setcounter{equation}{0}
\setcounter{figure}{0}
\pagenumbering{arabic}
\input{cap/01}


The restult is that tableofcontents, listoffigures, listoftables are correctly numbered but the chapter "simboli" uses "arabic" numeration. A side-effect is that the first page of "cap/01" is the number "3" (but I can fix it).

Thanks.

• Insert \clearpage (or \newpage) after \input{cap/Simboli} and before \pagenumbering{arabic}. – Mico Mar 7 '16 at 9:48

• @Dalmo1991: Normally, there's no need of resetting the counters explicitly -- this is done usually when the chapter counter is stepped. – user31729 Mar 7 '16 at 16:54

Here's a suggested solution. The main idea is to insert \newpage -- \clearpage will work as well -- before \pagenumbering{arabic}.

\documentclass{scrreprt}
% ... remainder of preamble
\begin{document}
\pagenumbering{Roman}
\input{cap/title}
\newpage
\tableofcontents
\newpage
\listoffigures
\newpage
\listoftables
\newpage
\input{cap/Simboli}

\newpage % <- this is new
\setcounter{table}{0}
\setcounter{equation}{0}
\setcounter{figure}{0}
\pagenumbering{arabic}
\input{cap/01}
% ... remainder of document
\end{document}
