# How to force Latex to change from “A Appendix's name” to “Appendix A”

I work on a article type document and I would like to force Latex to use "Appendix A" without giving a name in place of the simple "A" that it gives me when I start a new section in the appendices.

My example :

when I type this

\documentclass[a4paper,titlepage]{article}
\usepackage[titletoc]{appendix}
\numberwithin{equation}{section}
% I write it because I would want to keep the (A.1) notation for
% equations' label for appendices

\begin{document}

\section{First section}
blablabla

\begin{appendices}

\section{nameA}
blablabla
\section{}
blablabla
\end{appendices}

\end{document}


I get this in the body of the document :

A nameA
blablabla
B
blablabla


and in my toc I get

Appendix A nameA ...
Appendix B


which is fine (as far as the toc is concerned)

But I would like that I got this in the body :

Appendix A nameA
blablabla
Appendix B
blablabla


How to do this ?

• Please post a MWE of your code starting with \documentclass and ending with \end{document} – Red Sep 12 '13 at 14:19

Just add the title option when including the appendix package:
\usepackage[titletoc,title]{appendix}
