I am using Overleaf for TeX editor. I want to start numbering from Introduction , but instead starts from \listoftables. How can I continue counting \listoftables with Roman and start Arabic numbering from the Introduction?

The main proceeds as below:

\begin{document}

% new lengths for a harmonized width of the plots
\newlength{\plotwidth}
\setlength{\plotwidth}{0.7\columnwidth}
\newlength{\plotheight}
\setlength{\plotheight}{0.66\plotwidth}
\newlength{\semiwidth}
\setlength{\semiwidth}{0.35\columnwidth}
\newlength{\semiheight}
\setlength{\semiheight}{0.66\semiwidth}

% the titlepage
\pagenumbering{alph}
\pagestyle{empty}
\include{sections/titlepage}

% the preface
\pagenumbering{roman}
\pagestyle{plain}
\include{sections/abstract}
\include{sections/task}
\include{sections/declaration}

% the table of contents and the lists of figures and tables

\tableofcontents
\include{sections/notation}
\include{sections/acronyms}
\listoffigures
\listoftables

% the actual content
\pagestyle{headings}
\pagenumbering{arabic}
\include{sections/introduction}
\include{sections/body}
\include{sections/implementation}
\include{sections/experiments}
\include{sections/results}
\include{sections/discussion}

% the bibliography
\bibliographystyle{unsrt}   % only numbers
\bibliography{literature}

% the appendix
\appendix
\include{sections/appendix}

% the theses
\pagestyle{empty}   
\include{sections/statements}

\end{document}

% end of file
  • Welcome to tex.sx. You need \clearpage before "the actual content". \pagenumbering takes effect immediately on the currently in-process page. – barbara beeton Dec 17 '19 at 16:20
  • Welcome! What kind of article class do you use? If you use a book class, you can use \frontmatter and \mainmatter. Could you provide a compilable MWE (minimal working example), so that we can see what is going on? – Taunch Dec 17 '19 at 16:20
  • @barbarabeeton Your suggestion worked. Thank you very much! I apologize for late reply! – KrisQ Dec 26 '19 at 19:42
  • @Taunch The first thing I tried was \frontmatter and \mainmatter. I could not get to work. The article class I am using is "Thesis". Maybe that is the reason that it did not work. Nevertheless, I am no expert, so it could be that I did not use them properly?! – KrisQ Dec 26 '19 at 19:46

The solution is the suggestion from @barbarabeeton. Using \clearpage will keep the counting as roman until the end of \listoftables.

After change:

% the table of contents and the lists of figures and tables
\tableofcontents
\include{sections/notation}
\include{sections/acronyms}
\listoffigures
\listoftables
\clearpage

% the actual content
\pagestyle{headings}
\pagenumbering{arabic}
\include{sections/introduction}
\include{sections/body}
\include{sections/implementation}
\include{sections/experiments}
\include{sections/results}
\include{sections/discussion}
