I use the tocloft package to design the Table of Contents. I wanted to add the word Part before the numbers of parts in TOC (f.e. using \cftpartpresnum), but I want to add it only for numbered parts. For example I want to have:

Intro ..... 1
Part I Lalala ...2
Part II Lalalala...4
Conclusion ....6

Is it possible? \cftpartpresnum adds to all parts.

1 Answer 1


Probably not the most elegant way: Add appropriate redefinitions of \cftpartpresnum to the .toc file using the \addtocontents macro. (Note: I'm using the tocvsec2 package to add unnumbered parts to the ToC.)








\part{First part}

\part{Second part}



  • Thank you for the answer! Unfortunately, I can not make it, I copy-paste into LaTex and it gives the following error: "Undefined control sequence \resetsecnumdepth"...

  • @Natalia: You have to load the tocvsec2 package.

  • Thank you!!! It works on my desktop at work, don't know why it did not work yesterday at my laptop. But here I have been already using the \tocvsec2 package (following your advise with \minitoc). Should I download manually \tocvsec2 in such case to my laptop? where should i copy it?

  • Is there the same solution for the memoir class for a document which include 27 parts and only the las one has sections and subsections? I tried to use this code, but in my situation table of contents gives first page blank, overlaps the page number and the bottom margin and doesn't go to a new page.
