I am using scrbook and would like to tune my table of contents to look like the one in this book : http://biblefacts.org/church/Charisma.pdf , with a text saying "Chapter #" on top of each entry.

I can't figure out how to do that. Currently, my code only shows a number in front of each line.

EDIT: I've added the code to change (as requested in a comment) the format of the chapter headings.

To change the format of the chapter entries in the ToC ou can use the tocloft package; to change the format of the chapter headings, you can use the titlesec package. A little example:


\renewcommand\cftchapfont{\scshape }
\renewcommand\cftchappresnum{ Chapter\ }

  {\chaptertitlename\ \thechapter}{10pt}


\chapter{Test chapter}

Thank you. This is perfect. – ℝaphink Apr 9 '11 at 19:18
How would I go about doing it for chapter headings as well (like on page 1 for example)? – ℝaphink Apr 9 '11 at 19:21
@Raphink: I've added the requested modification to my example code; feel free to change it to suit your needs. – Gonzalo Medina Apr 9 '11 at 21:33
Great, thank you again! – ℝaphink Apr 9 '11 at 21:37
