I am trying to include the word "Appendix" in the section titles before the appendix number. Trying \renewcommand{\thesection}{Appendix \Alph{section}:} works, but messes up the table of contents - the section name is printed over the section number: Image of issue

Minimal working example:




    \renewcommand{\thesection}{Appendix \Alph{section}:}

    \section{Test 1}

    \section{Test 2}


Any suggestions much appreciated.


You can load the appendix package and use the appendices environment`. There are two ways to do that, and also other goodies for the table of contents and the header. See the documentation, pp.3-4 for details.
