# Defining a chapter “outside” the last \part (amsbook)

Currently, I have the following:

\documentclass{amsbook}
\begin{document}

\chapter*{Introduction}

\part{First Part}
\chapter{1}
\chapter{2}
\chapter{3}

\part{Second Part}
\chapter{4}
\chapter{5}

\chapter*{Conclusion}

\end{document}


The table of contents is perfect. My only concern is how I see the contents in the side panel of my pdf viewer. Currently it shows:

Introduction
Part 1
Chapter 1
Chapter 2
Chapter 3
Part 2
Chapter 4
Chapter 5
Conclusion


whereas, what I wanted to have really is the following, where "Conclusion" is outside the last \part.

Introduction
Part 1
Chapter 1
Chapter 2
Chapter 3
Part 2
Chapter 4
Chapter 5
Conclusion

• It addresses not fully your needs, but it gives a clue how to avoid the 'wrong' bookmark. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/109891/… -- by the way, with one of the standard classes, it would be much easier to correct the bookmark. – user31729 Mar 7 '14 at 16:24
• could you turn your snippets into a complete MWE that begins with \documentclass... and ends with \end{document} – cmhughes Mar 7 '14 at 16:58

You can use the bookmark package:

\documentclass{amsbook}
\usepackage{bookmark}

\begin{document}

\chapter*{Introduction}

\part{First Part}
\chapter{1}
\chapter{2}
\chapter{3}

\part{Second Part}
\chapter{4}
\chapter{5}

\bookmarksetup{startatroot}
\chapter*{Conclusion}

\end{document}


The bookmarks panel as displyed by Okular:

• There's also usually some additional space at the end of a part in the table of contents. You might want to insert that manually as well to visually separate the Conclusion from Part 2: \addtocontents{toc}{\bigskip} (seen here: stackoverflow.com/a/1484703/2788450 ) – Jonas Greitemann Apr 29 at 11:26
