# appendix package: making appendix subsections

The problem with the code below is, it treats the Safety section as its own independent section. So in the table of contents, I've got 'Appendices' and 'Safety' as separate sections. I want Safety to look like a subsection of the 'Appendices' section.

Also, how do I rename 'Appendices' to 'Appendix'? It just looks better. Is it through a \renewcommand?

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{tocbibind}
\usepackage[toc,page]{appendix}

\begin{document}
\section{Introduction}
this is my introduction
\appendix
\appendixpage
\section{Safety}
\end{document}

• This may be of interest. To change the appendix page name, use \renewcommand{\appendixpagename}{Appendix} after loading the appendix package (see the package documentation, page 3). – jub0bs May 8 '13 at 11:25
• I think you should clarify your other problem, perhaps with an annotated screenshot of the output. – jub0bs May 8 '13 at 11:43
• I fudged around the problem by not using \appendix – Blackstone May 8 '13 at 11:51

My understanding of appendices in LaTeX is that you issue the \appendix command, and then carry on creating sections as before. You can have a \section called Appendix, and then within that, a \subsection called Safety.

Code:

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{tocbibind}
\usepackage[toc,page]{appendix}

\begin{document}
\tableofcontents

\section{Introduction}
this is my introduction
\appendix
\section{Appendix}
\subsection{Safety}
\end{document}


Result:
