I would like autoref to reference chapters in my appendix as appendix <chapternumber>. However it fails to print anything besides the chapternumber. From the hyperref documentation page 16 where it states that \appendixname is set to Appendix, I would expect this functionality to work out of the box. I assume it has something to do with the fact, that I use the appendices enviornment instead of \appendix. How do I fix this?



Notice how it states Chapter 1 but only A instead of Appendix A

Missing Appendix infront of A

I took a brief llok at https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/5785/19326, since it however seems to be available out of the box I would like to avoid using cref, since it states the links look worse.


The MWE generates the warning

Package hyperref Warning: No autoref name for `Appendix' on input line 11.

After defining


the two \autorefs print "chapter 1" and "appendix A".

  • Since I use todonotes and still have this issue which both generate a lot of warnings, I failed to check the warnings page which is hidden by texstudio if there are no errors. I feel kind of stupid for this mistake, but your reference to the warning will preventme from making a similar mistake again. thank you.
