Let's say you want to create a document that the first page has no page number on it, the next 3 pages have roman numbers (i ii iii iv and so on), and the next pages have regular numbers and the first page should start on page number 1...

The clue is to separate in sections. For each section you can define a new type of page numbering.

To create a section:

  • Create a new document.
  • Type for example "Front page in it".
  • Create a new section: Insert > Break... : in the dialog select next page (under section break types).
  • In this example we need 2 sections.

    Numbering in the first section:

  • Have the cursor next to some text in the first section.
  • Select Page numbering: Insert > Page Numbers...
  • Click Format: then you will get the dialog on the image:
  • On Page Number Format dialog: Select "Number format" as roman numbers (i ii iii ...). Click ok.
    On Page numbers dialog: Uncheck "Show number on first page", this will have our front page without numbering.

     

    Numbering in second section:

  • Have the cursor next to some text in the second section.
  • Select Page numbering: Insert > Page Numbers...
  • Click Format: then you will get the dialog on the image:
  • On Page Number Format Dialog: Select Start at: 1. Click OK. This will make the page number start at 1 for the first page on that section. If you select continue from previous section the page number will continue from what it was on the last page in the previous section.

    On Page Numbers Dialog: Have the number of first page checked, and click ok.

    Now you should see that the pages have numbers on them. You can of course change the position and type of numbering. But the key is sections, this will allow you to have different numbering on different parts of the document. And have the numbers continue or start over from each section.
