If I add an appendix at the end of my document, for example after the Bibliography, by choosing Chapter, Lyx will display Appendix A, what I do not want, as I have only one Appendice and I want to display Appendice (without the A). So, I select Chapter*, then I type Appendice, and in the PDF, the title Bibliography will appear in top of all pages of the Appendice.

    Do you use hyperref? What \documentclass are you using? Do you have sections in your appendix?

  • What other effect(s) do you want to achieve, besides having only one "Appendix"? Do you want to have the Appendix before Bibliography?

  • @Werner Document class is "book(more font sizes)". For hyperref I don't know, where can I check that ? I don't have sections in my appendix, just one chapter.

  • @Kevin C No other effect, just the appendix after the bibliography (if I remove the bibliography it does the same thing but with the last chapter instead: I get chapter 6 title in top of the appendix pages in the pdf).

  • @Gilbert: Are you using BibTeX to generate the bibliography? I don't have the issue you described when I put the bibliography before the appendix chapter. Are you using headers/footers? It may help other people to spot your problem if you can include a screen shot of the PDF output, you LyX editing interface, and the preamble of your document. BTW, to see if you've enabled hyperref, go to Document>Settings.. and check either (i) under PDF Properties if Use hyperref support is checked; or (ii) under LaTeX Preamble if there is anything like \usepackage{hyperref}.

This is basically the same problem as Headers of \chapters* take the headers of their previous \chapter

Right after the chapter heading, add an ERT with Ctrl + L, and write


If you have added twoside as an option to the document class, the first argument (Appendice in the example above) is printed in the header of even (verso) pages, while the second argument (empty) is printed on the odd (recto) pages.
