Huzzah!

Is there a similar trick to suppress TOC indexing of appendices sections without having to \section* them throughout? I just need the first page of the appendices in the TOC, but none of their (sub)sections.
thanks!

• Hi Brian,

I suggest you use the tocvsec2 package which let’s you control the depth of the toc-entries using \settocdepth{chapter} within your code. Here is a complete example that shows how you can use it to solve your problem:

\documentclass[a4paper,11pt]{report}
\usepackage{tocvsec2}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\chapter{One}
\section{First}
\blindtext
\section{Second}
\blindtext
\begin{appendix}
\settocdepth{chapter}
\section{First}
\subsection{First}
\blindtext
\section{Second}
\blindtext
\end{appendix}
\end{document}

Cheers, Tom.

Brian, I used a similar idea, but simply added in the line \addcontentsline{toc}{section}{Appendix}
directly above \appendix. That added the line into the TOC, but meant that I could simply * out each section and subsection name from then onwards, but the start of my appendices were noted.

And Tom, Thank you for this, I very much appreciate having finally found this incredibly simple solution to something that has been bothering me for a couple of hours!

3. Thanks a lot.
Some people suggested use \caption* to omit the appendix tables which produced another error and I could not reference any of my appendix tables. But your solution worked correctly. 🙂
