I have a document with a standard TOC generated automatically by pdflatex but by default this TOC does not include lists of figures, tables and the bibliography.

So I am trying to force these manually using \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{List of Tables} in the preamble, e.g.

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{List of Tables}
\listoftables

But what I am finding is that although the lists are included in the TOC, the page numbers tend to be one less than they should be. So if the TOC shows the List of Tables on page iv, the link in the TOC takes me to page iv which is titled List of Figures. In the TOC, the List of Figures is given as page iii.

The LaTeX MWE below illustrates what is happening.

A related issue is the page number of the bibliography. The TOC shows it to be on page 14 but page 14 actually displays the Results chapter.

The body of the document is fine and the titles appear correctly on the pages. So it must be something I am not doing, or doing wrong, with the \addcontentsline{...} lines.

Can anyone suggest anything?

MWE code:

    \documentclass[oneside,12pt]{report} % Use twoside for alternate page headings.

  • Add \addcontentsline after \listof... – Sigur Jan 6 '15 at 0:59

  • @Sigur: This works in the general case but happens in the case of my glossary code, i.e. \glsaddall \printglossary[type=acronym,title={List of Abbreviations}] \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{List of Abbreviations} And how might it be added to bibliography code? – Mr Morgan Jan 6 '15 at 1:11

You need to be on the correct page before you can issue contents-related macros. For this use

\cleardoublepage% or \clearpage under the oneside option
\phantomsection% Mark a hyperref link location
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\listtablename}% Add contents entry for List of Tables
\listoftables% Start List of Tables

One would do something similar for the ToC, the LoF and whichever other \chapter-related entry that is not in the ToC already.

If you want all list-of elements added to the ToC, you can also just add the tocbibind package to your preamble.

  • I am using tocbibind, but I get the Contents in the TOC, and am uncertain about how to apply tocbibind to the lists of algorithms and abbreviations. The other two lists appear to work. – Mr Morgan Jan 6 '15 at 1:36
  • @MrMorgan: Your example code doesn't show the use of tocbibind. Regardless, in order to get the other lists in the ToC, use my manual suggestion in the answer. – Werner Jan 6 '15 at 1:41
