    Is this a TeX related question at all? – user31729 Feb 7 '17 at 8:42

    Your question sounds like it's about how to change settings of a pdf viewer, rather about anything related to TeX, LaTeX, and friends. If this impression is incorrect, please let us know what the connection to TeX and friends may be. – Mico Feb 7 '17 at 8:44

    Do you mean a solution like renewing \thepage for viewers that support it (see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/205446/…)? – TeXnician Feb 7 '17 at 10:58

You need \usepackage{hyperref} and the pagestyles like \pagenumbering{roman}(i,ii,...), \pagenumbering{arabic}(1,2,...) or \pagenumbering{Roman}(I,I,...).



\usepackage{hyperref} %https://www.ctan.org/pkg/hyperref?lang=de <---------necessary package

% page numbers: i,ii,...
\pagenumbering{roman} % small roman numbers <---------------------------(style i,ii,...)
\pagestyle{empty}%don't show page number

\cleardoublepage %\newpage

% page numbers: 1,2,...
\pagenumbering{arabic}                % arabic numbers <-----------------(style 1,2,...)
\pagestyle{plain}% show page numbers again
Change pagenumbering style to arabic!

Your text. Page 1.
\cleardoublepage %\newpage
Next page here.
\cleardoublepage %\newpage

% page numbers: I,II,...
\pagenumbering{Roman} % big roman numbers <-----------------------------(Style: I,II,...)
Change pagenumbering style to Roman. For example appendix...

\cleardoublepage %\newpage

Solution: Collage of the different pages with different numbering:

You will need the lastpage package with fancyhdr.

Then voilà !

\fancyfoot[CO,CE]{\thepage\ / \pageref{LastPage}}

    This will not show the style on the PDF viewer menu however, it changes the text displayed in the footer only – user31729 Feb 8 '17 at 18:50
