In my thesis, I have a table of contents, list of figures, list of tables and a list of symbols and nomenclature generated with nomencl (in that order).

The lists of figures and tables do not appear in my table of contents. But, for some reason, my list of symbols and nomenclature does. How can I prevent the list of symbols and nomenclature from showing up in the TOC?

I am generating my list of symbols with the commands \renewcommand{\nomname}{List of Symbols and Nomenclature} (just to rename it to include both symbols and very brief definitions). Then: \printnomenclature[5cm] to print the list.

The nomencl package provides two options in this regard:

  • intoc: Inserts the nomenclature in the Table of Contents.
  • notintoc: No entry for the nomenclature in the Table of Contents. (default)

To revert to the default, use

\usepackage{nomencl}% http://ctan.org/pkg/nomencl

or insert the package option notintoc for completeness

\usepackage[notintoc]{nomencl}% http://ctan.org/pkg/nomencl

This will remove the "List of Symbols and Nomenclature" from the ToC.
