I need some help with creating an appendix for my thesis. I have about 10 figures which need to be in the appendix. I have a good appendix with the following code:



I have a main thesis.tex file where I call this appendix.tex file after the last chapter. Problems are:

  1. The appendix starts without any notice that it is the appendix except for the chapter number being A, but I want to have either a separate page which says "Appendix" prior to the start of the appendix or on top of the first appendix page to explicitly say "Appendix".
  2. Now I use the \chapter{} command to have the title of the appendix but I think I will have only one chapter in the appendix. Is there some command which can make the title insited of chapter?

    6 years open and still no satisfying answer. Can you maybe clarify your question a bit more if you are still missing parts in the answers?

    @Geliormth Considering this is the sole post of the OP in the entire SE realm, I think we could just consider Gonzalo's answer as de facto accepted, based on the votes.

The appendix package could be used here; the toc and page package options and the appendices environment will do what you need:



\chapter{Regular Chapter}
\chapter{Some Appendix}

    How can I change the 'Chapter A: Title' for 'Annex A:...'?

    @F_Jofre_A: \renewcommand{\appendixname}{Annex}. If you use toc or page, you'll need to renew \appendixtocname or \appendixpagename as well.

    @GonzaloMedina is there a way to delete the auto created page where it says "Appendices" in the middle of it?

    @3kstc: That is what the page option in \usepackage[toc,page]{appendix} is doing. Remove it and the page is gone.

    @Rodolfo better to ask a separate question for that than try and hope someone finds this.

A different solution that I use is below.

\section{\\Title of Appendix A}
% the \\ insures the section title is centered below the phrase: AppendixA

Text of Appendix A is Here

\section{\\Title of Appendix B}
% the \\ insures the section title is centered below the phrase: Appendix B

Text of Appendix B is Here

    Welcome to TeX.sx! Instead of using line breaks in the document body, centering section titles should be done in the preamble, e.g., with the titlesec package.

  • No need to use \newpage. Mar 26, 2013 at 20:45
  • @JohnTortugo In my case I also need to add \clearpage or \newpage as bibliography and appendices do not start from a new page.

% add abstract
% add acknowledgement
\chapter{\uppercase {Introduction}} %%add your chapter 1 title here
\input{chapter1} % filename in curly brackets
% add more chapters
\chapter{Name of Appendix A}
\input{appendixA} % filename in curly brackets
\chapter{Name of Appendix B}
\input{appendixB} % filename in curly brackets**

    Thanks Ethan for guidance. I am not sure my answer is better than the previous answers, but they were not working for me. I was frustrated. However, the script which I pasted worked for me, eventually. So I thought to share. In future I will try to follow your advice.

    That's an improvement. Next time you should provide a complete compilable document, including \documentclass , In fact the OP who asked the question should have done that too. Mar 7, 2017 at 18:27
  • Please comment in what way your code answers the OP.
