\includegraphics[scale=1]{pic1.jpg} \caption{Metonymy}.\label{fig:Metonymy}

\includegraphics[scale=1]{pic2.jpg} \caption{Synonymy}.\label{fig:Synonymy}



My MWE outputs an appendix with two figures and no Appendix title. Besides the figure names, I would like to have an Appendix title at the top of the page. Something like the following does not work here because I have captions for the figures already.

\caption{Example\label{appendix: Example}}\\

Use \chapter{A nice appendix} to get an appendix title.

Thanks for your answer. However, this will attribute the same title "A nice appendix" to all of my other appendices. – Costanza Aug 23 '12 at 14:23
Also, as you can see, I have a nice snippet created by lockstep that makes my appendices titles available in the ToC. Using \chapter won't allow me to have the appendix title in the ToC. – Costanza Aug 23 '12 at 14:26
@Costi --- In order: no it won't, and yes it will. You just need to add a separate \chapter command to generate each appendix title. They appeared in the toc when I tried this with your example. – Ian Thompson Aug 23 '12 at 18:51
