I have:


and it appears.

Appendix A
A.1 Intro

I would like to have the same except the "A.1 Intro" but instead "1.Intro"

How to remove the "A."?

Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, then they are marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it). You don't have to sign with your name since it automatically appears in the lower right corner of your post. – egreg Jun 28 '11 at 12:49

Just change the representation for section numbers:



Remember, though, that references such as \ref{appsec:intro} will appear just as "1", without any clue for the appendix "number".

Place \renewcommand{\thesection}{\arabic{section}} after \appendix to change the section numbers.
