1. What I want

I want to make the Appendix section as follows. Here, Appendix A and Appendix B

Appendix A are of the Chapter level, A.1 and B.1 are of the section level.

Title of Appendix A

A.1 Title

bla bla bla

A.2 Title

bla bla bla

Appendix B

Title of Appendix B

B.1 Title

bla bla bla

B.2 Title

bla bla bla

In the Contents the Appendix should be listed as

Appendix A Title of Appendix A

A.1 Title

A.2 Title

Appendix B Title of Appendix B

B.1 Title

B.2 Title

  1. The code I have used

    \documentclass[12pt,a4paper,twoside]{report}
    \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
    \usepackage{multirow}
    \usepackage{geometry}\geometry{top=3cm,bottom=3cm,left=3.7cm,right=2.5cm}
    \usepackage{fancyhdr}
    \pagestyle{fancy}
    \renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0.4pt}
    \renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0.4pt}
    \setlength{\headheight}{15pt}
    
    \setcounter{secnumdepth}{4}
    
    \usepackage{titlesec}
    \titleformat{\chapter}[display]{\normalfont\Huge\bfseries}{\chaptertitlename 
    \ \thechapter}{15pt}{\Huge}
    \titlespacing*{\chapter}{0pt}{-3\baselineskip}{20pt}[3.7cm]
    
    \renewcommand{\figurename}{Figure}
    \renewcommand{\bibname}{References}
    \hyphenpenalty=10000
    \tolerance=2500
    \usepackage{longtable}
    \raggedbottom
    
    \usepackage{cite}
    \usepackage{hyperref}
    
    \usepackage{nomentbl}
    \usepackage[toc,page]{appendix}
    \usepackage{enumitem,calc}
    
    \usepackage{booktabs}
    \usepackage{bigstrut}
    \usepackage{rotating}
    \usepackage{multirow}
    
    \usepackage{lscape}
    \usepackage{setspace}\linespread{1.6}
    \setlength\parskip{3pt plus 1.5pt minus 1.5pt}%paragraph
    
    \begin{document}
    
    \chapter{first chapter}
    ...
    \chapter{last chapter}
    
    \begin{appendices}
    
    \chapter{A Title}\label{appA}
    \section{A.1 Title}\label{appendixA1}
    \section{A.2 Title}\label{appendixA2}
    
    \chapter{B Title}\label{appB}
    \section{B.1 Title}\label{appendixB1}
    \section{B.2 Title}\label{appendixB2}
    
    \end{appendices}
    
    \end{document}
    

My problems:

The word "Appendices" occupies one whole page while Appendix A starts with a new page. But I want that Appendix A begins with a new page without the word "Appendices" occupying one whole page. In addition, the "Appendices" should not appear in the Contents, however, it now appears on the chapter level.

  • Welcome to TeX SX! You don't have any chapter in your appendix. How can you hope to have a cross reference such as appendix A? – Bernard Jul 28 '17 at 15:56
  • @Bernard, actually I do have some text, just forgot to indicate them, please see my update. Thanks – jsxs Jul 28 '17 at 16:04
  • I'm sorry, but you still don't have any appendix chapter. Only sections. – Bernard Jul 28 '17 at 16:06
  • @Bernard Thanks for your reminding. Please see my update. I am not sure whether I should use \begin{appendices} and \end{appendices} or just \appendix. I found that with the former the word "Appendices" will occupy one whole page. – jsxs Jul 28 '17 at 16:57

    As to cross-references, the code you posted gives exactly what you're asking for, so there must be something else in your real code. – Bernard Jul 28 '17 at 17:31
