How to get a list of appendices like the list of figures and list of tables? How to set it on a separate page, like the list of figures and list of tables?

I think that this post is not really the answer to Verly's question, as he doesn't seem to need a TOC for the appendix, merely a list of appendices like list of figures. It's the easiest way to use tocloft:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tocloft}

\newcommand{\listappendicesname}{Appendices}
\newlistof{appendices}{apc}{\listappendicesname}
\newcommand{\appendices}[1]{\addcontentsline{apc}{appendices}{#1}}

\parindent0mm

\begin{document}

some text some text some text some text some text some text 

\appendices{appendix one} appendix  appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix

\appendices{appendix two} appendix  appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix

\appendices{appendix three} appendix  appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix

\appendices{appendix four} appendix  appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix

\listofappendices

\end{document}

Edit 1: If you want headings for the appendices, you may do something like this:

\documentclass[parskip]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{tocloft}

\newcommand{\listappendicesname}{Appendices}
\newlistof{appendices}{apc}{\listappendicesname}
\newcommand{\appendices}[1]{\addcontentsline{apc}{appendices}{#1}}

\newcommand{\newappendix}[1]{\section*{#1}\appendices{#1}}

\parindent0mm

\begin{document}

some text some text some text some text some text some text 
\newappendix{Appendix one} appendix  appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix
\newappendix{Appendix two} appendix  appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix
\newappendix{Appendix three} appendix  appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix
\newappendix{Appendix four} appendix  appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix

\listofappendices

\end{document}

This will produce something like this:

Appendices


Edit 2: for centered headings do it like this:

\documentclass[parskip]{scrreprt}
\usepackage[margin=15mm]{geometry}
\usepackage{tocloft}

\newcommand{\listappendicesname}{Appendices}
\newlistof{appendices}{apc}{\listappendicesname}
\newcommand{\appendices}[1]{\addcontentsline{apc}{appendices}{#1}}

\newcommand{\newappendix}[1]{\section*{#1}\appendices{#1}}

\makeatletter
\renewcommand\section{\@startsection {section}{1}{\z@}%
  {-3.5ex \@plus -1ex \@minus -.2ex}%
  {2.3ex \@plus.2ex}%
  {\centering\normalfont\Large\bfseries}}
\makeatother

\parindent0mm

\begin{document}

some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text  
\newappendix{Appendix one} appendix  appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix 
\newappendix{Appendix two} appendix  appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix 
\newappendix{Appendix three} appendix  appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix 
\newappendix{Appendix four} appendix  appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix appendix 

\listofappendices

\end{document}

enter image description here


Edit 3: For a centered headline for the list of Appendices, change

\newcommand{\listappendicesname}{Appendices}

simply to

\newcommand{\listappendicesname}{\hfill Appendices \hfill}

and as we are at it, for aligned right:

\newcommand{\listappendicesname}{\hfill Appendices}

  • sir, that was great answer, but how to centering the title of list appendix ? as to centering toc,lof,lot I do like this : '\renewcommand{\cfttoctitlefont}{\hfill\Large\bfseries\MakeUppercase}' '\renewcommand{\cftaftertoctitle}{\hfill}' – Verly Sep 18 '11 at 16:12
  • adding \hfills before and after the headline will do – Tom Bombadil Sep 19 '11 at 9:50
