### Page number style issue

I have all my pages in romans numbers until table of content,

from introduction I added to my document:

\input{chapters/1. Introduction}
\pagenumbering{arabic}
\setcounter{page}{10}

and this help me set the numbers in arabic from the introduction page, but since my introduction takes more than one page I get the 1st page of the introduction in romans number and from the second page of the introduction is where I start getting the arabic pagination numbers.

Does anyone knows how can I mitigate this issue?

### Page number style issue

A suggestion for switching from roman to arabic page numbering without resetting the page counter:

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage[nottoc]{tocbibind}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\begin{document}
\pagenumbering{Roman}
\tableofcontents
\listoffigures
\cleardoublepage
\renewcommand{\thepage}{\arabic{page}}
\chapter{Introduction}
\Blindtext[4]
\end{document}

A minimal working example could help to find out whether this also works in your context.
