I am using the report class and the appendix package, and I'd like to have an un-numbered chapter called Appendices, where every appendix is a section named Appendix X under said chapter. The numbering ought to be robust in the table of contents, too: the prefix numbering of each appendix should be \Alph. The way appendix is defined, each appendix is a chapter, which seems a little overkill.

I'm not sure if an MWE even applies here.


    \section{First appdx}
    \section{Second appdx}

I don't think the appendix package provides the machinery you need. Fortunately, it's not difficult to provide the needed setup instructions -- specifically, \addcontentsline, \setcounter, and \renewcommand\thesection directives -- yourself.

enter image description here



\chapter{First chapter}

\chapter{Second chapter}

%% provide three setup instructions:
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Appendices} % write to the toc file

\section{First appendix}
\section{Second appendix}

    Much obliged: I think this is also simpler and fits the flow of the rest of the content better than the appendix package.
