How to create a typeset appendix for each chapter or section

Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

Creating an appendix for each chapter of a book or for each section of an article requires the addition of the appendix package, which implements a subappendices environment to contain the appendix.

Creating subappendices

  1. Add the appendix package to your document.
  2. Begin the subappendices environment:
    1. Place the insertion point where you want the appendix to appear.
    2. Enter an encapsulated TeX field.
    3. In the entry area, type \begin{subappendices} and choose OK.
  3. Type the title of the appendix and apply the section tag (for appendices within chapters) or the subsection tag (for appendices within sections).
  4. Type the content of the appendix.
  5. End the subappendices environment:
    1. Place the insertion point where you want the appendix to end.
    2. Enter an encapsulated TeX field.
    3. In the entry area, type \end{subappendices} and choose OK.

Changing the numbering scheme

The subappendices you create are numbered with the chapter or section number and an uppercase alphabetic letter (2.A, 2.B, and so on). You can modify the numbering scheme to remove the chapter or section number:

  1. From the Typeset menu, choose Preamble.
  2. Click the mouse in the entry area.
  3. On a new line at the end of the preamble entries, type

    \renewcommand{\setthesection}{\Alph{section}}

    or

    \renewcommand{\setthesubsection}{\Alph{subsection}}

  4. Choose OK.
