# Wrong caption (As Fig. A.1.) in figure when they put in last page

I got rule from journal as

The manuscript (including title page, abstract, manuscript text, references, and table/figure legends), tables, and figures. Files should be labeled with appropriate and descriptive file names (e.g., SmithText.doc, Fig1.eps, Table3.doc). Upload text, tables and graphics as separate files.

Hence, I delete all figure in my manuscript and I just put caption at the end of the file. is it right? However, when I located figure legends in last page (after appendix), the caption figure become Fig. A.1, instead of my expected Fig. 1. This is my latex source. Have any mistaken in my file. Thanks

From this question, add this line \setcounter{figure}{0} \renewcommand{\thefigure}{\arabic{figure}} after your newpage :
