# sectioning / document hierarchy issue / start new root / move section up one level [duplicate]

Sorry for the bad title, but couldn't come up with something better. I have a problem with the section-hierarchy of my latex document:

This is my document structure:

\begin{document}

[...]

\part{ Conclusion}
\chapter{Conclusion and Future Work}
\section{Summary}
\section{Future Work}
\backmatter
\listoffigures
\listoftables
\listofalgorithms
\printindex
\printglossaries
\bibliographystyle{alpha}
\bibliography{thesis}
\chapter{Curriculum Vitae}
\end{document}


The following picture shows the hierarchy, after opening the PDF in adobe acrobat:

As you can see, everything starting from List of Figures is under the Conclusion chapter. However, I would like to have it on the same level as Conclusion.

Interestingly, in the table of contents it is printed as I would like to see it also on the document hierarchy above (EDIT: I think I came to a wrong conclusion here. These sections (i.e., List of Figures, etc.) are not numbered. In fact they still might be sectioned under the Conclusion part):

• yep. see my answer. – beta Aug 14 '15 at 9:32
• I've marked as possible duplicate because I've seen your answer and cannot appreciate what's new in your question/answer from what's in Move section out of part. But, of course, it's just my opinion. – Ignasi Aug 14 '15 at 9:37
• i agree, however, maybe my question makes it easier to retrieve the solution for people having the same issue in future. after conducting an initial search, i did not find the other stackoverflow-question, because it does not contain the keywords, i was looking for. so maybe at least in this way, this question can help. – beta Aug 14 '15 at 9:57

Okay, the following did the trick (source: Move section out of part):

\usepackage{bookmark}
[...]
\bookmarksetup{startatroot}


Use \bookmarksetup{startatroot} where you want to start a new root. In my case right after \backmatter:

\begin{document}

[...]

\part{ Conclusion}
\chapter{Conclusion and Future Work}
\section{Summary}
\section{Future Work}
\backmatter
\bookmarksetup{startatroot}
\listoffigures
\listoftables
\listofalgorithms
