I would like to adjust the section NUMBERING in the table of contents. I would prefer to name my appendices "Appendix 1.B Some additional Figures" in the document and A.1.B......Some additional Figures in the TOC. Where 1 is the chapter, and b is the appendix number. This example would indicate the second appendix

In reality my document contains multiple chapters that can contain appendices and my document as a whole will have appendices too. Therefore I prefer the \renewcommand solution within chapters.

For clarity, I rename the last sections to Appendix ... using the \renewcommand on \thesection. I don't actually add Appendices in the Latex-sense of the word

\documentclass{book}
\begin{document}

\tableofcontents

\chapter{Test Chapter One}

\section{Test Section One}
\section{Test Section One}
\subsection{Test Subsection A}
\subsection{Test Subsection B}

\setcounter{table}{0}
\renewcommand{\thetable}{\arabic{chapter}.\Alph{section}.\arabic{table}}
\setcounter{figure}{0}
\renewcommand{\thefigure}{\arabic{chapter}.\Alph{section}.\arabic{figure}}
\setcounter{equation}{0}
\renewcommand{\theequation}{\arabic{chapter}.\Alph{section}}
\setcounter{section}{0}
\renewcommand{\thesection}{Appendix \arabic{chapter}.\Alph{section}}
\section{Test Section One}
\section{Test Section One}
\subsection{Test Subsection A}
\subsection{Test Subsection B}
\end{document}

  • What is the 2 in 2.B referring to then? The chapter number? How do you use the appendices in a chapter? As it stands, your document has no appendix yet. – user31729 Feb 7 '18 at 22:42
  • That was just a random example> Chapter 2. I changed it and hope I made it more clear – Nightingale Feb 7 '18 at 22:43
