i am creating my thesis report in latex.While adding appendices i am getting a page only with a string "Appendices" before Appendix A and Appendix B. The code for the appendix is as follows

\begin{appendices}

The main file calling this appendix chapter as follows

\input{./Chapters/main_appendix.tex}

My problems are :

1.Before the chapter "Appendix A" a page with a word "Appendices" is displaying i want to remove this page. 2.Also in Table of Contents its showing like

  • Appendices .................. 45
  • Appendix A ...................... 46
  • Appendix B ...................... 47

i want to display it with Appendix A and Appendix B. so that remove Appendices ...45

any idea to solve my problems

  • Just remove the appendix package from your preamble (so says the crystal ball). Of course, then other things might not work as expected. However, in that sense, please update your post with a minimal working example (MWE) that starts with \documentclass and ends with \end{document} that also replicates your problem. It'll help us address your problems far more quickly. – Werner Sep 10 '14 at 16:03
  • appendix package means..\begin{appendices}??? – shahana Sep 10 '14 at 16:05
  • No, appendix package means \usepackage{appendix} and \begin{appendices}...\end{appendices}. – Werner Sep 10 '14 at 16:05
  • the Problems are : table of contents shows 9 ....45 and 10 ... 53 and appendix A and Appendix B chapters shows chapter name as chapter 9 and chapter 10 – shahana Sep 10 '14 at 16:14
  • Yes, that's a problem. Can you click on this link and provide us with the information needed? It would go a long way in showing us what's going on at your end. – Werner Sep 10 '14 at 16:16

Call the appendix package with the [titletoc] package option. From the appendix documentation:

The appendices environment can be used instead of the \appendix command. [...] The functions of the appendices environment are usually accessed through the package options, but there are declarations that may be used instead. The options are:

  • toc

    Put a header (e.g., Appendices) into the Table of Contents (the ToC) before listing the appendices. (This is done by calling the \addappheadtotoc command.)

    [...]

  • titletoc

    Adds a name (e.g., Appendix) before each appendix listed in the ToC. The name is given by the value of \appendixname.

    [...]

Here is a minimal example:

enter image description here

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage[titletoc]{appendix}
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents

\chapter{A chapter}
\chapter{Another chapter}

\begin{appendices}
\chapter{}
\chapter{}
\end{appendices}

\end{document}
  • how do i remove Appendix A, Appendix B from the table of contents but add only Appendix on the toc – Kong Dec 30 '17 at 0:20
  • @kong: Are you also using the appendix package? How about supplying a minimal example of your current setup, even if it's on Pastebin? – Werner Dec 30 '17 at 0:27
