Hi,

thanks for these suggestions. I now use the following settings:

\setuppagenumbering [alternative=doublesided, location=, style=sansbold]

\startsectionblockenvironment[frontpart]
\setupuserpagenumber[numberconversion=romannumerals, way=byblock]
\stopsectionblockenvironment

\startsectionblockenvironment[bodypart]
\setupuserpagenumber[numberconversion=numbers]
\setuppagenumber[number=1]
\stopsectionblockenvironment

\startsectionblockenvironment[backpart]
\setupuserpagenumber[numberconversion=numbers]
\stopsectionblockenvironment

\startsectionblockenvironment[appendix]
\setupuserpagenumber[numberconversion=numbers]
\stopsectionblockenvironment

which give me a frontpart with roman numerals starting with i, and a bodypart starting with 1. The pagenumber for the backpart and appendix is continued. This is not the case if I make "way=byblock" a default setting. Thanks again!

Steffen

Now, normally this is no big deal, as one sets up things at the beginning of a document. However, when mid document one wants to change the style, this reset becomes annoying. (The linenote bug reported a few days ago was a side effect of this.)

By default, we number per text (we could change that if needed) but in the past the \setupuserpagenumber triggers a synchronization of the counter and therefore reset the number, so that obscured the fact. Now, you just need to set the 'way':
