### thebibliography spilling into Appendix

Hi All:

My bibliography spills into my Appendix section. Please help. After writing my last section, I have a
\begin{Appendix}
figure1
figure2
.
.
.
figure6
\end{Appendix}
\begin{thebibliography}{1}
\end{thebibliography}

The .pdf output has part of my bib wedged between my figure 2 and 3 etc. What a mess! The figures do take up a few pages. And I would like them to stay together. So how do I ensure that the bib also appears continuously without interruptions? How can I call so that the bib starts in a new page/new section after my Appendix?

Thanks so much!

Hi BMAcox,

there is no appendix environment with the standard classes. Just write \appendix instead of \begin{appendix} ... \end{appendix}.

You could use \clearpage (\cleardoublepage) to force the output of floating figures before the beginning of the bibliography. Alternatively you might use \FloatBarrier of the placeins package.

That did it. Thanks so much, Stefan!!!

As
\Appendix

which I do like better because it does not enumerate this section. How do I get the word 'Appendix' to proceed this section?

Hi BMAcox,

you could write:
\appendix\section*{Appendix}...

Or what exactly do you mean?

Just simply to have the word 'Appendix' appear w.o. any numbering that \section{Appendix} would do.
\Appendix
\begin{center}
\bf{Appendix}
\end{center}

That's why I suggested \section*{Appendix}, with a star *. The starred sectioning forms print the title, but they do not print a corresponding number and do not incement the relevant counter and they do not make an entry into the table of contents.

By the way, do not use \bf. Those two letter font commands are obsolete. Use \textbf{Appendix} or {\bfseries Appendix} instead.
And the usual appendix command of the standard classes is \appendix, written in small letters.

Cool. Thx for clarifying this
