I'm writing a document in Russian and use the appendix package.

Currently, it uses Latin letters A, B, C etc. to identify the individual appendices. I want to change these letters either to Russian ones (A, Б, В etc.) or to numbers.

How can I do this?

Update 1:

Here is a MWE:

\documentclass[a5paper,pagesize,10pt,bibtotoc,pointlessnumbers,
normalheadings,DIV=9,twoside=false]{scrbook}

\usepackage[a5paper]{geometry}

\usepackage{cmap}
\usepackage[T1,T2A]{fontenc}
\usepackage[russian]{babel}

\usepackage{pdfpages}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\linespread{1.05} 

\usepackage{graphicx}

% \usepackage{hyperref}

\usepackage[toc,page]{appendix}

\newcommand{\q}[1]{>>\textit{#1}<<}

\title{A book title}
\author{My name} 
\date{\today} 


\renewcommand{\appendixtocname}{Приложения}
\renewcommand{\appendixpagename}{Приложения}

\begin{document}

\begin{appendices}

\chapter{...}
\section{...}
TBD
\section{...}

\section{...}

\section{...}

\chapter{...}
\section{...}

\chapter{...}
\begin{enumerate}

    \item ...
\end{enumerate}

\end{appendices}      

\end{document}

Welcome to TeX.SE! Which language-related packages (babel?, polyglossia?), if any, do you use? –  Mico Feb 11 at 6:52
    
@Mico See my update 1. –  Dmitri Pisarenko Feb 11 at 6:56
    
Thanks for providing some code that describes your main document setup. However, it doesn't show just how you start the appendix matter, and hence it's not straightforward to provide suggestions on how you you should proceed to change the numbering style of chapters located in the appendix. Maybe this material is in the file _text.tex, but without having access to it it's not possible to tell. –  Mico Feb 11 at 8:22

@DmitriPisarenko I've merged the code so to make a MWE. –  karlkoeller Feb 11 at 8:47

The simplest workaround is to say

\renewcommand{\thechapter}{\Asbuk{chapter}}

just after the appendix are started.

Here is how to, based on your MWE:

\documentclass[a5paper,pagesize,10pt,bibtotoc,pointlessnumbers,
normalheadings,DIV=9,twoside=false]{scrbook}

\usepackage[a5paper]{geometry}

\usepackage{cmap}
\usepackage[T1,T2A]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[russian]{babel}


% \usepackage{hyperref}

\usepackage[toc,page]{appendix}

\renewcommand{\appendixtocname}{Приложения}
\renewcommand{\appendixpagename}{Приложения}

\begin{document}

\begin{appendices}
\renewcommand{\thechapter}{\Asbuk{chapter}}

\chapter{...}
\section{...}
TBD
\section{...}
TBD
\section{...}
TBD
\section{...}
TBD

\chapter{...}
\section{...}
TBD
\section{...}
TBD
\section{...}
TBD
\section{...}
TBD

\chapter{...}
TBD

\chapter{...}
\begin{enumerate}
    \item ...
    \item ...
    \item ...
\end{enumerate}

\end{appendices}      

\end{document}

Here's a picture of the second appendix:

enter image description here

A way to avoid the explicit command after \begin{appendices} is to have in the preamble

\usepackage[toc,page]{appendix}

\renewcommand{\appendixtocname}{Приложения}
\renewcommand{\appendixpagename}{Приложения}
\makeatletter
\g@addto@macro\appendices{\renewcommand{\thechapter}{\Asbuk{chapter}}}
\makeatother

Then just \begin{appendices} will do.
