I have the following code to add an appendix to my document:


The problem is, the linebreak is destroying my layout. The next pictures shows how it should look like

enter image description here

But unfortunately it looks like this enter image description here

So I dont know why the pagebreak destroys the layout. Any hints?

It looks like you are using some custom chapter style, maybe this is a problem. Wouldn't \newpage instead of \pagebreak do the trick? Also, depending on the size of your pictures, you have to but an empty line between the \includegraphics commands to allow a break between the pictures – Martin H Mar 14 '11 at 12:51
The word "site" in your question title confuses me. Aren't you talking about page layout? – Matthew Leingang Mar 14 '11 at 13:26
@Matthew: I guess "site" is inspired by the German "Seite", meaning "page". – Hendrik Vogt Mar 14 '11 at 13:31
@Hendrik Vogt: Yes that was the problem ;) – RoflcoptrException Mar 14 '11 at 13:33
@Martin H Thanks this solved the problem. – RoflcoptrException Mar 14 '11 at 13:36

use \newpage instead of \pagebreak, then a vertical formatting is ignored. You can also insert a \vfill before \newpage to be sure, that an internally \raggedbottom has no effect.
