I am trying to create appendix in Lyx. I use 'Document->Start Appendix Here' just before the beginning of the appendix text, and I can see that the text before the Bibliography is wrapped in an appendix box. However, when I print the document, the text appears the same way as the main body text, i.e. no indication whatsoever that these are part of appendix. Any suggestion what I may have missed? I have also tried inserting '\appendix' before the appendix text, but it doesn't work either.

In addition, how does the section numbering work in appendix? Can I simply organise the sections using the dropdown list

    It's not clear what the problem is. What happens and what do you want to be different? The text of an appendix should be the same as the main body. All that really changes in an appendix is that the sections are numbered by letters A,B,C... rather than numbers.

  • there is only a difference in the chapter/section headings and the entry Appendix is added to the toc. That's all ...

In my master document I have (in TeXnicCenter):


etc. And in my Appendix documents (I am using article class):

\section{Name of the Appendix}

And then it appears as Appendix A, Appendix B, etc. in the document and in the TOC.

    If you use \include rather than \input, then there is no need to manually enter \newpage between sections. Jan 24, 2011 at 13:31
  • and also, shouldn't it be \clearpage?

  • instead of? what I said works fine by me, but \include is indeed easier, but I was already using \input (and then \newpage) Jan 25, 2011 at 9:37
  • What Juan meant is that you can use \include{Appendix1} instead of \input{Appendix1}\newpage. Does that help for clarification? (If you want to answer me, use "@Hendrik" in your comment.) Jan 25, 2011 at 12:53
