i want to have the word 'ΚΕΦΑΛΑΙΟ' which means Chapter in greek, before the chapter number in the table of contents and the 'ΠΑΡΑΡΤΗΜΑ' before appendices, i am using memoir class and the command \tableofcontents* for the produstion of toc. I provide a MWE, and a picture of what i get now. The number 1 before the chapter title, is inserted automatically in the toc.



\makeatletter %
  \renewcommand{\printchaptername}{\chapnamefont \@chapapp}
  \renewcommand{\printchapternum}{\chapnumfont \thechapter}
  \renewcommand{\afterchapternum}{\par\nobreak\vskip \midchapskip}
  \renewcommand{\printchaptertitle}[1]{\chaptitlefont ##1}
  \renewcommand{\afterchaptertitle}{\par\nobreak\vskip \afterchapskip}



enter image description here

  • See if \renewcommand{\printchapternum}{\chapnumfont ΚΕΦΑΛΑΙΟ \thechapter} does the trick?

    Use \renewcommand{\cftchapterpresnum}{ΚΕΦΑΛΑΙΟ~} \setlength{\cftchapternumwidth}{7em}

It is just \renewcommand\cftchaptername{\chaptername~} in order to get at prefix into the toc

Just as an addition to the comment, if you want to do the same with the appendices in the toc, use

  • thanx a lot, what if i want the same for the appendix with the word 'Παράρτημα' instead of 'ΚΕΦΑΛΑΙΟ'? what is the variable?
