# Latex formatting with "A", "B" instead of 'Zero', 'One'

I am using a folder system in latex where I have a folder for each chapter and appendix with their respective chapter.tex or appendix.tex files. I then include them in the main.tex file like:

%% APPENDICES %%
\appendix
\include{appendix/appendix1}
\include{appendix/appendix2}
\include{appendix/appendix3}
\include{appendix/appendix4}


In the appendix1.tex and the following appendix .tex files, I have the following:

\chapter{...some title...}
...some text...


The output however, is not how I want it. It outputs:

-------- Output : ---------

Appendix One
...some title...
...some text...

-------- I want : ---------

Appendix A
...some title...
...some text...


EDIT: I have figured out why it is behaving this way. I had the following package change the title format of my chapters:

% Make chapter numbers into string words 1 -> ONE
\usepackage{fmtcount}
\makeatletter
\raggedright \normalfont \ifnum \c@secnumdepth >\m@ne \Huge \bfseries
\@chapapp \space \Numberstring{chapter} \vskip 10\p@ \fi #1\par \nobreak \vskip 30\p@ }}
\makeatother


This causes "Appendix A" to turn into "Appendix One" and so on. I want to change this behaviour. Is there a way for me to undo this command at a specific place in the document?

• As long as we don't know how you configure your document how are we suppose to help with this? In the default classes \appendix changes \chapter to use upper case letter, if you get something else, you have a different setup of which you have told us nothing. Sep 5, 2022 at 10:30
• @daleof, I have figured out the cause of this and added it into an edit. I still don't know how to change the behaviour in regards to the appendixes though. Sep 5, 2022 at 10:49
• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. Sep 5, 2022 at 15:06
• I woulod remove everything from \makeatletter to \makeatother, just to see what the defualt is like. Sep 5, 2022 at 19:13

Without any testing (you should provide a full but minimal example) you can probably get away with

\makeatletter
