I am having difficulties making the first part of a booklet to have Roman numerals and the second part to have normal numbering.

i.e. summary, table of contents etc to have i, ii, iii as the numbers and from introduction to 1, 2, 3 etc.

I am using word for the booklet which I intend to convert to PDF.

How can I set different numbering systems on different parts of my Word document?

  • This is off-topic for this site, but if i remember correctly, what you need to do it to create different sections. Google will be able to help.
