I'm here with weird stuff again.

How can i continue numbering while changing numbering style to Arabic from Roman? For example let's assume I have total of 7 pages and I want to number the first 3 of them as : i,ii,iii; then I change back to Arabic again and continue counting as 4,5,6,7.

  • If you are using the book class then you can use \frontmatter and \mainmatter to delimit the corresponding parts of your documment. The pages after the mainmatter` command will be numbered with arabic numbers.

After \begin{document} (or in the document preamble), issue

\renewcommand{\thepage}{\roman{page}}% Roman page numbers

On the page where you want it to change to Arabic numbering, use

\renewcommand{\thepage}{\arabic{page}}% Arabic page numbers

The above just modifies the page number/counter printing mechanism. In contrast, using \pagenumbering{arabic} will change the numbering to Arabic but also resets the page counter.
