Is there a way to completely hide the \part and \chapter headings when they are called (but still show them in the toc)? Maybe using titlesec?

Note:

I'm using something like this to capture the chapter headings and reuse them:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[explicit]{titlesec}
\usepackage{lipsum}

% Define \chaphead to be used in section headings
\let\oldchapter\chapter
\newcommand\temphead{}
\newcommand\chaphead{}
\renewcommand\chapter[2][\temphead]{%
    \renewcommand\temphead{#2}%
    \renewcommand\chaphead{#2}%
    \oldchapter[#1]{#2}}

\newcommand*\Hide{%

\titleformat{\chapter}[display]
  {}{}{0pt}{}
%\titleclass{\chapter}{straight}

\titleformat{\section}[display]
  {\large} % format
  {\chaphead, section \thesection} % label
  {10pt} %sep
  {} %before
}

\begin{document}

{
\Hide
\chapter{A first chapter}
\section{A first section}
\lipsum
}

\chapter{A second chapter}
\section{A second section}
\lipsum

\end{document}

When activating \titleclass{\chapter}{straight}, it seems \chaphead is not capture anymore.

  • The headings must not be typeset, but the space they occupied must remain? Commented Apr 18, 2011 at 12:20
  • I mean to hide the chapter name completely, so it doesn't appear in the text.

Indeed, you can use the titlesec package; its explicit option allows you to remove the titles:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[explicit]{titlesec}

\newcommand*\Hide{%
\titleformat{\chapter}[display]
  {}{}{0pt}{\Huge}
\titleformat{\part}
  {}{}{0pt}{}
}

\begin{document}
\tableofcontents

{
\Hide
\part{A test part}
\chapter{A test chapter}
\section{Test section}
}

\part{A test part}
\chapter{A test chapter}
\section{Test section}

\end{document}

  • Alright, that removes the chapter headings... but it also removes the section headings, and the chapter headings outside of the environment in which I did the call to \titleformat...

  • You can keep the changes local by using the grouping mechanism; I've edited my example to reflect this approach (and defining a command to simplify the work). Commented Apr 18, 2011 at 14:11
  • Hmmm... I'm using an environment already, that should limit the scope, shouldn't it?

  • Without your actual relevant code it's really hard to tell. Why don't you add to your question all the necessary elements (in the sense of a minimal working example) affecting your request? Commented Apr 18, 2011 at 14:22

    Again, without knowledge of your actual relevant code, this process of guessing is totally useless and time wasting... as I already suggested, add a minimal working example of your relevant code. Commented Apr 18, 2011 at 14:43

I extended and changed the example for class srcartcl to the following solution (You find the one for class srcbook below):

\documentclass{scrartcl}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage[explicit]{titlesec}

% change part format
\titleformat{\part}[drop]{}{}{0pt}{}
\titlespacing*{\part}{0pt}{0pt}{0pt}

\begin{document}
\tableofcontents

\part{One}
\blindtext
\section{Apple}
\blindtext
\section{Peach}
\blindtext

\part{Two}
\blindtext
\section{Red}
\blindtext
\section{Green}
\blindtext

\end{document}

Btw.: It works nicely together with the counter reset from Adendum 2 in this first answer.

\makeatletter
\@addtoreset{section}{part}
\makeatother

Here the code with scrbook:

\documentclass{scrbook}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage[explicit]{titlesec}

% change part format
\titleformat{\part}[drop]{}{}{0pt}{}
\titlespacing*{\part}{0pt}{0pt}{0pt}
\titleformat{\chapter}[drop]{}{}{0pt}{}
\titlespacing*{\chapter}{0pt}{0pt}{0pt}

\begin{document}
\tableofcontents

\part{One}
\blindtext
\chapter{Fruits}
\blindtext
\section{Apple}
\blindtext
\section{Peach}
\blindtext

\part{Two}
\blindtext
\chapter{Colours}
\blindtext
\section{Red}
\blindtext
\section{Green}
\blindtext

\end{document}
