Page numbering in footer

Hi,

I want to page numbers in the footer as Page i of vi but only till my page numbering is roman. After the initial lists and summary, I change the page number to arabic numerals so there then, I want to restart page numbers in the footer as 1 of 19.

Is there a quick way to do it?

I am currently using this:
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass[11pt]{report}\usepackage{amsmath}\usepackage{amsfonts}\usepackage[papersize={8.5in,11in},top=0.81in, left=1.44in, right=1in,bottom=0.94in]{geometry}\usepackage{alltt}\usepackage{fancyhdr}\usepackage{graphicx}\usepackage{ulem}\usepackage{ifthen}\usepackage{winfonts}\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}\usepackage{color,hyperref}\usepackage{titlesec}\usepackage{lastpage}\rfoot{\fontsize{8pt}{0pt}\fontfamily{phv}\selectfont{V1.0.0 DOCUMENT}}\cfoot{Page \thepage of \pageref{LastPage}}\lfoot{\fontsize{8pt}{0pt}\fontfamily{phv}\selectfont{Department Name}}

Another problem I have is with the header. I need to add an image in the header. I am currently using this:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\pagestyle{fancy}\fancyhead[L L]{\includegraphics[323pt,229pt][466pt,314pt]{Header_image.eps}}

The problem is that with this pagestyle, I get an ugly header on the right hand side with a line and chapter title randomly on some pages.

If I use
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\pagestyle{fancy}\rhead{}\lhead{\fancyplain{}{\includegraphics[323pt,229pt][466pt,314pt]{Header_image.eps}}}

then the image appears only on the first page of the report along with a horizontal line.

Any help is welcome!

Thank you,
Nkal

Hi Nkal,

you could use
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\pagenumbering{roman}

and later
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\pagenumbering{arabic}

To refer to a page, use \label and \pageref, or if you would like to do it quickly with fixed value, just write it there.

Re: Page numbering in footer

Hey Stefan,

If you see the code, I do that already. What I need is a little more complex. I have page numbers in both roman and arabic numerals in my report. First pages have page numbers in roman form and after that they restart from 1 and are in arabic form. I need page numbers in the footer in this format: i of j, where i is the current page number and j is the last page number in that page number type. For example, if I have 5 pages that go from i, ii, iii, iv, v, then on page 2 I should have (page ii of v). In the pages where I have arabic numerals I need (page 3 of 10).
I dont know if that is confusing. But I will try once more. I have, lets say 10 pages in all. They are numbered i to v and 1 to 5. so on first 5 pages that are numbered in roman (i to v), I need page i of v, page ii of v, etc. and on the last five pages I need page 1 of 5, page 2 of 5, etc. Remember, my report has both formats in it.

Cheers,
Nkal

There was no \pagenumbering.

Do you really want a programmed solution? You could easily place \label{lastromanpage} on the last roman page and use \pageref{lastromanpage}.

Re: Page numbering in footer

Oops! Forgot to add it in the code here. That works great! I used it with if then else in the footer to get both roman and arabic on the respective pages.

Thanks a bunch, Stefan. That helps!
