# Continue Page Numbers in Appendix

I am writing a thesis using LaTex and I was told that my numbering cannot restart in the Appendices, which seems wrong to me but I'm not going to argue it. I am using the report class and the appendix command. It seems that the appendix command restarts the numbering when it is used. However, I would like to use the appendix command but not reset my page numbers.

Any help in this matter would be great. Thanks!

It would be better to add a MWE to your question which shows the problem. –  Vahid Damanafshan Nov 28 '12 at 16:47

## 1 Answer

\appendix in report class does not reset the page counter so something else must be doing that. Most likely calling \pagenumbering so

  \renewcommand\pagenumbering[1]{}


would disable that.

Awesome! Thank you for the help!! –  tpar44 Nov 28 '12 at 16:55
Oh you added a MWE well yes if you are calling \pagenumbering explicitly then you can more simply just not do that rather than redefine it to do nothing:-) –  David Carlisle Nov 28 '12 at 16:56
