Hi Neelima,

Thank you for using Syncfusion project,

We can't start the page number anywhere from the document.
We can change the page number to roman numeral by using below code snippet.

  //Create page count field
            PdfPageCountField count = new PdfPageCountField(font, brush);
            count.NumberStyle = PdfNumberStyle.LowerRoman;

Please let us know if you have any concern.

With Regards,

I did it, on each section using this:
IWSection section = new WordDocument().addSection();
section.PageSetup.RestartPageNumbering = true;
                    section.PageSetup.PageStartingNumber = pageStartingNumber;

Hi Joel,

Thank you for using Syncfusion Products.


This forum is opened for Essential Pdf.

And your question seems to be from Essential DocIO(IWSection).

Could you please post the query in the correct place.
