### How to Create a separate list of appendices

Hi,

I am looking for a command that creates a list of appendices like list of figures and tables.
Mainly something like "\listoftables" if there's any.

For my thesis I use \usepackage[toc,page]{appendix} in my root file, and then do

\appendix

\include{appendixb}
\include{appendixc}
\include{appendixd}
\include{appendixe}
\include{appendixf}
\include{appendixh}
\include{appendixi}
\include{appendixj}
\include{pilotstudy}
\include{taudata}
\include{neurologyofpain}

And for each separate appendix file I just put \chapter{appendixa} and it comes out in the table of contents.

That may or may not help - I'm a LaTeX newbie and that's what is working in my PhD thesis.

The appendix package suggested by kal26 is the right choice. Its documentation explains in detail how to create a "List of Appendices".

Best regards

Hi all,

I also am trying to work out how to generate a separate list of appendices, but with little luck!
I appreciate the direction to the appendix help documentation and have read the information there. Unfortunately, I am limited in my knowledge of Latex and am using Lyx.
I have tried inserting some of the tex commands at the onset of the appendices in the document, but they do not work for me. I have also done a considerable amount of searching for a set of commands that would create a separate list of appendices, but haven't come up with anything helpful. In fact, I have specifically registered here to solicit help!
Could someone explain in simple terms how I can get a separate list of appendices?

Hi,

I don't know that much about Latex, yet in the memoir class there is a part called "New 'List of...' and entries" that could be of interest to you. I think that instead of \appendix followed by \chapter, you will have to define your own \app{} macro.

Hope that helps,

Chx
