I'm using the latex class report.

As I do not want to have heavy style for the chapters like Lenny Sonny. I use the following:

\titleformat{\chapter}[hang]{\Huge\bfseries}{\thechapter. }{0pt}{\Huge\bfseries}

So I am quite happy when I create a chapter. However, for the chapter of the appendix I do not want to have such a huge space between the title and the top of the page [see image]. Hence, my question is: for each title of chapters in the appendix, how to put the title [title of appendix only) more up?

enter image description here

I borrowed my response from a discussion in another Stack Exchange thread and modified it based on how I understand your question. Maybe looking at this can also be helpful: How to move the chapter title upwards on page?

But here is an MWE based on the information you provided. I hope it is what you are looking for.



\titleformat{\chapter}[hang]{\Huge\bfseries}{\thechapter. }{0pt}{\Huge\bfseries}


\chapter{Chapter 1}


    {\noindent\raggedright\normalfont% Alignment and font reset
        \huge\bfseries \@chapapp\space\thechapter~~#1\par\nobreak}% Formatting
    \vspace{\baselineskip}% ...just a little space

\chapter{Move Up}
