How do I get in Appendices Appendix appears in the header

Postby templateuser » Sun Mar 08, 2015 3:11 am

Place appendages in the template, but in the header of each page tells me chapter, instead of appendix, as I do to change me to Appendix chapter, thank you very much.

Usually this is simply done by starting the appendix by


in the document.

However, currently the template doesn't respect the changes made by this command. You can fix it by adding


The template itself could be fixed by changing that line in structure.tex (PAGE HEADERS section):

  1. \renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{\markboth{\sffamily\normalsize\bfseries\chaptername\
  2. \thechapter.\ #1}{}} % Chapter text font settings


  1. \makeatletter
  2. \renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{\markboth{\sffamily\normalsize\bfseries\@chapapp\
  3. \thechapter.\ #1}{}} % Chapter text font settings
  4. \makeatother

The reason is, \appendix in the book class does this:

  1. \newcommand\appendix{\par
  2. \setcounter{chapter}{0}%
  3. \setcounter{section}{0}%
  4. \gdef\@chapapp{\appendixname}%
  5. \gdef\thechapter{\@Alph\c@chapter}}
