I am using LaTeX for preparing by project. I am using \documentclass{report}

As I am in need of first chapter Introduction' with no chapter number i have used

\newcommand{\mychapter}[2]{
        \setcounter{chapter}{#1}
        \setcounter{section}{0}
        \chapter*{#2}
        \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{#2}
    } 

in preamble.

As i am in need of list of figures before the introduction after \begin{document} i have added following comments

\listoffigures

\mychapter{0}{Introduction}
In Chapter 1, we give the basic ideas and facts.....

and in the out put the Header of the chapter introduction is List of figures. (See Figure). May any one help to recover from this issue.

  • Your \mychapter command is almost certainly not the best way to do what you want to do. But in order for someone to offer a better solution, you're probably going to need to edit your question to provide a minimal example (or see here). – jon Jun 12 '16 at 5:00

You can use a better definition for \mychapter:

\documentclass{report}

\usepackage{kantlipsum} % for mock text

\pagestyle{headings} % to get headers

\newcounter{savedsecnumdepth}

\newcommand{\mychapter}[1]{%
  \setcounter{savedsecnumdepth}{\value{secnumdepth}}%
  \setcounter{secnumdepth}{-1000}%
  \chapter{#1}%
  \setcounter{secnumdepth}{\value{savedsecnumdepth}}%
  \refstepcounter{chapter}%
}

\setcounter{chapter}{-1}% first should be Chapter 0
\begin{document}

\tableofcontents

\mychapter{Introduction}

\section{Ghijk}

\kant[1-30]

\end{document}
