Thanks for your comment. That’s a neat trick. Best, Tom.

This was very useful, but how did you add “Chapter 1”, “Chapter 2” and so on?

• tom

Hi Manuel,

How to add the chapter to the list of figures and tables is explained in this post.

Cheers, Tom.

Is there away to use normal article type countering for main text, and then, in the appendices, to use section-wise equation counter (iike (A.1), (A.2), (A.3))

• Antti

This was easy. The amsmath command

\numberwithin{equation}{section}

in the middel of the text does it, ie this command does not need to be in the preample.
