# Page Numbering on TeX

I learn to write documentation with LyX and LaTeX recently. I will write some notes here to remind me of what I have learned. I will add some document example later on.

To make comment:

`% this is comment`

to ignore/eliminate page numbers (all pages):
`\pagestyle {empty}`

to eliminate page numbers on certain page (for one page only):
`\thispagestyle {empty}`

to break to new page:
`\newpage`

If you want to continue giving numbers on the rest of document, after the newpage,
`\setcounter{page}{start_page_number} %replace the start_page_number with number you want your page start`

Usually for the Table of Contents page, you use roman numbering style like (i), (ii) etc, change the style number with:
`\renewcommand \thepage{\roman{page}}`
or
`\pagenumbering{roman}`
or if you want to make it use arabic again like 1,3,5, etc.:
`\renewcommand \thepage{\arabic{page}}`
or
`\pagenumbering{arabic}`
