I am trying to make the appendices to my Master's thesis. The template consists of several parts that are arranged in a file called "final.tex". I'm having two problems with appendices:

  1. I can keep the index the way I want it, but appendices A, B and C instead of starting with A.1, B.1 and C.1 start with A.1, A.1 and A.1 always, regardless of the letter of the appendices. I want the title of the appendices: "Anexos A", "Anexos B" and "Anexos C" not to have a letter in front, but that the subtitles have a letter, the dot and the number.
  2. The blank pages added in the appendices are not being assumed. When the number of pages is odd, the template is not putting a blank page in the appendices, as it does with the rest of the document.

How can I resolve these two issues? I've tried to see other Stack Exchange questions and tried to see if it worked, but I still haven't been able to get the template to work properly.

Code of the "final.tex" file:

You are resetting the numbering by using \appendix multiple times. Try using it before the whole appenix part only, like this:

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{blindtext}

\begin{document}
    \tableofcontents
    \Blinddocument

    \appendix

    \refstepcounter{chapter}
    \chapter*{\appendixname\enskip\thechapter}
    \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\appendixname\enskip\thechapter}
    
    \section{Section in Appendix A}

    \refstepcounter{chapter}
    \chapter*{\appendixname\enskip\thechapter}
    \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\appendixname\enskip\thechapter}

    \section{Section in Appendix B}

\end{document}
