I need to split the part title in the ToC as follow:

Part I

title of the part

I am using the titletoc package. It seems easy with the chapter, but I am not able to figure out how to do it on parts. Any advice?

    Could you show us what you've tried? – Bernard Nov 1 '15 at 20:53
  • A lot of titletoc examples. But I could not find anything on the internet about doing this. – Marco Nov 1 '15 at 22:52

Here is an old example of mine, which I modified to get what you want (and probably some features you don't want, but they're easy to remove):


\usepackage[newparttoc,explicit, clearempty]{titlesec}%


\titleformat{\part}[display]{\bfseries\filcenter}{\huge\partname~\thepart}{20pt}{\Huge #1}[\thispagestyle{empty}]%

{\partname~\thecontentslabel \endgraf}{}%



\part{A First Part}
\chapter{Chapter the First}
\section{Section 1.1}
\section{Section 1.2}

\chapter{Chapter the Second}
\section{Section 2.1}
\section{Section 2.2}

\part{Another Part} \label{part-2}

\chapter{Chapter the First}
\section{Section 1.1}
\section{Section 1.2}

\chapter{Chapter the Second}
\section{Section 2.1}
\section{Section 2.2}


enter image description here

  • Thanks Bernard, it worked! I missed the newparttoc option! – Marco Nov 2 '15 at 22:45
  • You're welcome. I must say finding all the options in the documentation is not very easy… – Bernard Nov 2 '15 at 22:50
  • You are right...! – Marco Nov 2 '15 at 22:52
