    Changing pagination of front matter in PDF files from roman to arabic numerals

    By default, my PDF file comes out with roman numerals for the TOC (ii, iii, etc). I would like to change that to arabic numerals (2, 3, etc.)

    I think I have to change format=”i” to format=”1″ in a file somewhere in AppDataRoamingSoftQuadXMetaL SharedDITA_OTdemoxmfo  but I'm not sure which file exactly. I've tried a couple at random but no luck.

    I'm Using XMetal 6.0 on Windows 7 and deliverable type XMetal Enhanced PDF via RenderX XEP.

    Thanks

    The file is %appdata%SoftQuadXMetaL SharedDITA_OTdemoxmfoxslfotoc.xsl

    Line 62 controls this. Here's the OOTB version:

    Thansk!

    For some reason when I tried that yesterday the output failed and I saw the following error in the log file:

    [echo] C:UsersifuseyAppDataRoamingSoftQuadXMETAL~1DITA_OTtemp/stage2.fo Started[java] Fatal error reported by XML parser: invalid UTF-8 byte (check the XML declaration) (code: 0xa9)

    But I tried it again just now and it worked. So thank you.

    Hello,

    Is there a way to change the numbering from roman numerals to arabic numerals for a customization, please?  Would the steps be the same or is there a file I can change in the following folder to overwrite this setting?
