Appendicies in LateX

  1. Apr 30, 2009 #1
    I have written

    blah blah

    It calls them 'A name1' etc, I want it to write 'Appendix A: name1'

    How do I get it to do this?

    My class environment is article which I don't want to change because that will change other things like the numbering.

    You have to go into the style file and hack it to ensure that you get Appendix A etc..as opposed to A, B etc......

    Locate the article.cls file, find the line that defines the appendix layout, and amend it to what you want it to look like.

    Noooo! First, COPY article.cls to a file with a different name and a .cls extension. Then, do the hacking.
