Placing Appendices after references for Quarto book


I have been working on my thesis with Quarto. I need to render a PDF document where the appendices section is after the References. Nonetheless, it seems that references are always placed at the end of the document. I saw this post but none of the suggestions seems to be working for me.

My _quarto.yml file contains the following:

  type: book

  title: "Assesing uncertanties"
  subtitle: "By"
    - name: "Ronny"
  date: "January 2024"
  date-format: "MMMM YYYY"
    - abstract.qmd
    - index.qmd
    - dedication.qmd
    - acknowledgements.qmd
    - list_abbreviations.qmd
    - chapter_1_intro.qmd
    - chapter_2_lm.qmd
    - chapter_3_ml.qmd
    - chapter_4_conclusions.qmd
    - bibliography.qmd
    - appendices.qmd

 - rap_v002.bib

      - before-body.tex
      - toc.tex
    tbl-cap-location: top
    documentclass: scrreprt
    lof: true
    lot: true
    page-breaks: true
      - inner=3cm
      - outer=3cm
      - top=2cm
      - bottom=2cm
      - headsep=8pt
      - headheight=4pt
      - footskip=33pt
      - ignorehead
      - ignorefoot
      - heightrounded
    linestretch: 1.5
     - section-refs.lua # needs pandoc version >= 2.11 to work

For references I have a file called bibliography.qmd and it contains the following:

# References {.unnumbered}

::: {#refs}


My appendices.qmd file have the following:

# Appendices

| **Name** | **Description** | **Resolution** | **Wavelength**                | **Scale** |
| B4       | Red             | 10 meters      | 664.5nm (S2A) / 665nm (S2B)   | 0.0001    |
| B8       | NIR             | 10 meters      | 835.1nm (S2A) / 833nm (S2B)   | 0.0001    |
| B2       | Blue            | 10 meters      | 496.6nm (S2A) / 492.1nm (S2B) | 0.0001    |

In the final pdf output, despite having the bibliography.qmd file stated before the appendices section, references always come out at the end of the document, after the appendices.

Is there a way to set up the appendices after the references?

Thanks for the help!

Faced the same issue running quarto 1.4.534 (pre-release). Reverting back to 1.3.450 solved the issue for me.

Good luck with the submission!

Is this possible to open an issue on Quarto CLI repo with a link to a github repo where we can reproduce ?

If something is working in 1.3 and not in 1.4, we need to fix it probably.

I tried with the template Quarto book having

  title: "quarto-book"
  author: "Jane Doe"
  date: "31/03/2022"
    - index.qmd
    - intro.qmd
    - summary.qmd
    - references.qmd
    - appendices.qmd

and rendering to pdf and I got the reference before

Did you try without this filters ?
