I'm making a document with KOMA Script, as usual, in fact with the scrartcl class. But I need to add at the end of the document an \appendix macro and after few appendices, but I need to make two things I'm not sure how to achieve it:

  1. restart the page number counter afte the \appendix macro, and
  2. number the following pages with uppercase letters: A, B, C, etc.

I was reading another related questions about change the number format for a whole document, or change it for an speciic section, but that isn't what I need exactly.

Maybe the following MWE can help to clarify the idea:

\documentclass[div=calc]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\begin{document}
\section{A section}

Lorem ipsum sic dolor amet\ldots

\section{Another section}

Lorem ipsum sic dolor amet\ldots

\appendix

\section{An appendix}

Lorem ipsum sic dolor amet\ldots

\end{document}

With KOMA-Script class scrartcl one possibility is defining \appendixmore in your preamble:

\newcommand\appendixmore{%
  \cleardoubleoddpage
  \pagenumbering{Alph}%
}

enter image description here

Code:

\documentclass[div=calc]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[english]{babel}

\newcommand\appendixmore{%
  \cleardoubleoddpage
  \pagenumbering{Alph}%
}

\begin{document}
\section{A section}
Lorem ipsum sic dolor amet\ldots
\section{Another section}
Lorem ipsum sic dolor amet\ldots

\appendix
\section{An appendix}
Lorem ipsum sic dolor amet\ldots
\end{document}
  • What is \cleardoubleoddpage? I couldn't find it in the KOMA Script manual. – Iraultza Belaustegigoitia Apr 13 '16 at 18:44
  • @IraultzaBelaustegigoitia From the KOMA-Script manual: "It is recommended to use \cleardoubleoddpage to close the last page and start a new odd page before \pagenumbering{<numbering style>}." \cleardoubleoddpage is explained in section 3.13. Interleaf Pages. – esdd Apr 13 '16 at 18:49
  • I saw the section 3.13 but there isn't any command that has exactly that name, there are several similar options, but since I'm making a document with the scrartcl class I don't need to leave double blank pages, so the \clearpage of all life is enough. However, all these KOMA Script options are interesting, thanks for the suggestion. – Iraultza Belaustegigoitia Apr 13 '16 at 19:07

    @IraultzaBelaustegigoitia You are right. For onesided documents \clearpage is enough and for twosided with default open=right a \cleardoublepage does the job. \cleardoubleoddpage ensures that a right page is opened even if the document uses twoside, open=left. A possible blank page gets the page style set by option cleardoublepage=<pagestyle>. Default is cleardoublepage=empty. And you are right \cleardoubleoddpage is only short mentioned (not in the box with the commands) in the documentation but not really explained. – esdd Apr 13 '16 at 19:40
