I have a customised appendices section, which includes several different appendix, e.g., Appendix A, Appendix B and so on. Within each appendix, I have tables, figures and sometimes also Pages taken from a PDF (which are not figures) and thus I don't caption them as such, but give them a custom section heading which does not appear in the table of contents. Here is a MWE.

\crefname{figure}{figure}{figures}

\settypeblocksize{237mm}{150mm}{*} % size of text block on page

\setheadfoot{\onelineskip}{2\onelineskip}
\setheaderspaces{2cm}{*}{*} % start of rule header line on page

Here is what it looks like once compiled Example PDF... My problem is, that I would like to reference Appendix A2 in-text. At the moment the reference reads Appendix A, but it should read Appendix A2. Any suggestions how this can be achieved? Thanks.

    Using \label without \caption is useless there, since it needs a \refstepcounter command in advance, which is done internally by \caption, i.e. a manual \refstepcounter{figure}\label{...} should solve your problem for both examples, but this might get tedious if you have more of such captionless 'fake' - sections – user31729 Apr 16 '17 at 23:44
  • @ChristianHupfer, yes that works nicely. Thank you. As you say though, it will probably get tedious, and I may have to rethink the way I am handling this in general. If anyone has suggestions/thoughts/opinions on handling captions for non-figures, I'd appreciate it. Ps. Christian, if you'd like to add your comment as an answer? – Tina Apr 16 '17 at 23:54

    Doneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! ;-) I will think about a better approach to simplify this manual increment of the counter – user31729 Apr 16 '17 at 23:56
