# Memoir appendix

At the moment I have Appendix A when I start the appendix page. In the table of contexts I see the item A. How can I replace the "A" by "Appendix". I'm using the memoir class and I'm also using babel but I was already able to change the appendix name as follows.

\addto\captionsdutch{%
\renewcommand{\appendixname}%
{Appendix}%
}

Welcome to TeX.SX! Is the problem in that you have only one appendix and don't want it "numbered" by a letter? –  egreg Jun 18 '12 at 22:11
exactly. I still want to have the figures in the appendix to be with labels like Figuur A.1 sometexthere instead of Figuur .1 when I remove the numbering. –  Silverrocker Jun 19 '12 at 9:21

If I understood your question correctly, to add the word "Appendix" in the ToC, you can redefine \cftappendixname; if you also want to suppress the numbering for the appendix (both in the ToC and in the body of the document), you can redefine \thechapter just before the appendix (and adjust \cftchapternumwidth). Here's a little example:

\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage[dutch]{babel}

\renewcommand{\appendixname}%
{Appendix}%
}
\renewcommand*\cftappendixname{\appendixname}

\begin{document}

\tableofcontents*
\chapter{Test Regular Chapter}
\appendix


@Silverrocker Add \renewcommand{\thechapter}{A} after \chapter{Test Appendix} –  egreg Jun 19 '12 at 9:25
