### Page numbering starts on page 5 - with number 5

Hey guys, I am struggling with the pagenumbering. As you can see below, I want to number my pages in roman for table of contents, list of figures and list of tables. But only the pages with the table of content are numbered with I and II, the other 2 are not numbered at all. Other way round with the main part: The numbering begins on page 5, with the (correct) number 5. This is the second! page of chapter 3 (Theoretischer Hintergrund - Stand der Forschung). I tried \frontmatter and \mainmatter, too, didn´t work out at all. Also tried to shift \pagenumbering{arabic} into the first chapter (Einleitung), didn´t work. What to do now? I am glad about any help, thank you in advance

\begin{document}\maketitle[image,logo=left]\pagenumbering{roman}\tableofcontents\listoffigures\listoftables\input{symbols}\printnomenclature \setcounter{page}{1}\pagenumbering{arabic}\chapter{Einleitung}\input{Tex-File/Kapitel/1Einleitung.tex}\chapter{Aufgabenstellung}\input{Tex-File/Kapitel/2Aufgabenstellung.tex}\chapter{Theoretischer Hintergrund - Stand der Forschung}\input{Tex-File/Kapitel/3StandDerTechnik.tex}\chapter{Parameter der verwendeten Anlage}\input{Tex-File/Kapitel/4ParameterDerAnlage.tex}\chapter{Materialien und Methoden}\input{Tex-File/Kapitel/5MaterialienMethoden.tex}

You need to post an example that includes your document class, as this is ultimately what is controlling the behavior. Try it with the standard report class, for example, and you'll see that it works fine. (You will have to do \cleardoublepage right before \setcounter{page}{1} in your example to start the new page numbering system at the right place.)

My minimal working example:
\documentclass{report}\begin{document}\title{Hi}\author{Me}\pagenumbering{roman}\maketitle\tableofcontents\listoffigures\listoftables \cleardoublepage\setcounter{page}{1}\pagenumbering{arabic}\chapter{Einleitung}\chapter{Aufgabenstellung}\end{document}

Thanks for the try, but it didn't help. I attached two pictures trying to make the problem more clear, both are just the top of the page where the numbers should appear

The counter ist alright, but the numbers are not displayed on the first pages

\documentclass[%  a4paper,%  11pt,% <10pt, 9pt>  smallchapters,	oneside,  %style=screen,  %sender=bottom,  blue,% <orange, green, violet>  %rgb, <cmyk>  %mono  ]{tubsreprt}\input{Packages} \title{Beispieltitel}\subtitle{Untertitel}\author{someone}\logo{\includegraphics{images/Logo.pdf}}\titlepicture{images/bla.png} \address{%}\backpageinfo{%} \maketitle[image,logo=left]%[<plain/image/imagetext>,<logo=left/right>] \pagenumbering{roman}

There you go with the first part of the file. It is a university-template

The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Guess what I've done first

We cannot do any testing without the relevant files we do not have access to. I do not have a crystall ball.

I guess the template is from http://tubslatex.ejoerns.de. This could have been mentioned.

I just don't have the time to install it myself right now. I can imagine that this could help:

\renewcommand*{\chapterpagestyle}{scrheadings}

Bloody good shot sir! In the end it is a combination of both,
