How do I make the alphabetic numbering continuous? I don't want to change anything else in my ToC. I am pretty sure that this is done from my jf.sty package but I'm not good enough to know what to edit in that.

The .sty file can be found here: jf.sty.

Here is my code:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage{geometry}
\usepackage{natbib}                 
\usepackage{bibentry}
\setlength{\bibsep}{0pt plus 0.3ex}
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\makeatletter
\patchcmd{\l@section}{1.5em}{2em}{}{}   
\makeatother                    
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{amsfonts}                   
\usepackage{amsthm}                     
\usepackage{amsmath}            
\usepackage{amssymb}                    
\setlength{\parindent}{0in}             
\usepackage{mathtools}                  
\usepackage{setspace}                   
\usepackage{graphicx}                   
\usepackage{datetime}
\usepackage{indentfirst}
\usepackage{endnotes}                           
\usepackage{jf}

\setcounter{tocdepth}{5}
\begin{document}    
\tableofcontents

\setcounter{page}{1}    
\pagenumbering{arabic}  

\include{Chapters/Introduction}
\include{Chapters/Formula}
\include{Chapters/Evaluation}
\include{Chapters/Discussion}
\include{Chapters/Appendix}
\include{Chapters/References}
\end{document} 
  • The jf is no package file in sense of LaTeX, it is rather something meant to be used as \input{jf}. If you don't need this strange file, omit it. Your document is missing the several files will not produce a filled ToC at all, there is no Appendix as shown in the image and no References section – user31729 Jan 30 '17 at 16:08
  • ok. Still trying to locate the file which might be controlling the A,B,C and the resetting it for new sections – user10699 Jan 30 '17 at 16:13

The jf 'package is a mess:

\ProvidesPackage{jf}

% Formatting for Journal of Finance papers

% Theorems, etc. (need to load amsthm first)
\newtheoremstyle{jf}% name
{6pt}% Space above
{6pt}% Space below
{\itshape}% Body font
{}% Indent amount
{}% Theorem head font
{:}% Punctuation after theorem head
{.5em}% Space after theorem head
{}% Theorem head spec (can be left empty, meaning normal)

\theoremstyle{jf}

% Make References title all caps.
\renewcommand{\refname}{REFERENCES}

% Put dots after numbers in section headers.
\renewcommand{\@seccntformat}[1]{{\csname the#1\endcsname}.\hspace{1em}}

% Section and table numbers 
\def\thesection       {\Roman{section}}
\def\thesubsection    {\Alph{subsection}}
\def\thetable         {\Roman{table}}

% Section header format
\renewcommand{\section}{\@startsection
  {section}{1}{0mm}{-3.5ex \@plus -1ex \@minus -.2ex}{2.3ex \@plus.2ex}{\centering\normalfont\Large\bfseries}}

\renewcommand{\subsection}{\@startsection
  {subsection}{2}{0mm}{-3.25ex \@plus -1ex \@minus -.2ex}{1.5ex \@plus.2ex}{\normalfont\large\itshape}}

% Put section number back in references to subsections and subsubsections.
\renewcommand{\p@subsection}{\thesection .}
\renewcommand{\p@subsubsection}{\thesection .}

% Appendix formatting:

\def\appendix{\par
  \setcounter{section}{0}%         % Start counting sections again
  \setcounter{subsection}{0}% 
% Use uppercase letters for section numbers:
  \gdef\thesection{\@Alph\c@section}% 
% Number equations (A1), etc.:
  \renewcommand{\theequation}{\thesection\arabic{equation}}% 
% Put word "Appendix" before appendix number:
  \renewcommand{\@seccntformat}[1]{{Appendix \csname the##1\endcsname}.\hspace{1em}}
% Same formatting as above, but reset equation counter with each section
  \renewcommand{\section}{\setcounter{equation}{0}\@startsection
    {section}{1}{0mm}{-3.5ex \@plus -1ex \@minus -.2ex}{2.3ex \@plus.2ex}{\centering\normalfont\Large\bfseries}}
}

\endinput

I don't recommend its usage.

Now, to fix the issue with the continous numbers, remove the resetting of subsection from section counters with \counterwithout*{subsection}{section} -- this needs the chngcntr package.

Note, that this will cause troubles if there are more than 26 subsections in the total document!

  • How do i do this i didnt quite grasp what i should change in the jf package. "Now, to fix the issue with the continous numbers, remove the resetting of subsection from section counters with \counterwithout*{subsection}{section} -- this needs the chngcntr package. "? Thanks for helping btw. – user10699 Jan 30 '17 at 16:40
  • It's shown in the code, after loading the jf package, to fix what it screws up – user31729 Jan 30 '17 at 16:49
  • ok so i can just copy the code and paste it in jf ? – user10699 Jan 30 '17 at 16:57
  • Just one note: under % Appendix formatting: % Number equations (A1), etc.: \renewcommand{\theequation}{\thesection\arabic{equation}}% this is not true in my appendix. But i would like it to be true – user10699 Jan 30 '17 at 17:14

    @user10699 Is this an official journal template you have to use? If so, complain to the journal an ask for advice, it is their job to provide a suiting package, not yours and you shouldn't need to bother. If you don't want to submit to that journal, bin the package. – Johannes_B Feb 1 '17 at 7:32
