I would like to add a 'thanks' page to my thesis. I did this very easy, just a bold and bigger heading, then the text. Since the table of contents is on the next page (a right page in this two-sided document), both the 'thanks' page and the table of contents are visible simultaneously. Therefore, i would like to use the same style as the table of contents (size and font of heading, vertical space to the top, vertical space below the heading). I can do this by hand, but how is this done properly?

Here is my MWE:


\setmainfont[Ligatures=TeX]{Linux Libertine O}
\setsansfont[Ligatures=TeX]{Linux Biolinum O}


\author{Foo Bar}
\title{A foo bar for a new foo bar baz}


{\bfseries\Large Thanks}

{\bfseries\Large Thanks}
  • Thanks! I did not think of this, because i did not wanted to have an toc entry, but i forgot about chapter* (with an asterisk)
