Pitt ETDs have two different types of page numbers.
The two numbering schemes are able to co-exist in the paper due to a Section Break just before the beginning of the first chapter. Section Breaks interrupt formatting the way Page Breaks divide pages. When you insert a Section Break, page numbering automatically starts over at one and you have the option to change it to another style. If you accidentally delete the Section Break before chapter one, the numbering won’t start over there, like it’s supposed to. Here’s how to fix it. These settings are generally useful in a few other cases as well.
To insert a section break:
Now you’ll notice that page numbering has started over with one on your Introduction page. All that is left is to change the preliminary pages back to Roman numerals.
2. Change the Number Format to “I, II, III, …” and click OK.
Now you should check to make sure the numbering is consistent in each section.
