I implemented the instructions found in this forum (link here) to add a separate List of Appendices, as requested by my university. The list should be placed right after the List of Abbreviations as in the picture below: enter image description here

In order to achieve this, I added the following macro:

\newcounter{dlf}
\newcommand\test{%
  \stepcounter{dlf}
  \chapter{Test chapter \thedlf}
  \section{test section \thedlf}}
\cftinsertcode{preapp}{\setcounter{tocdepth}{-10}}
\newcommand\apptoc{
  \begingroup
  \cftinsertcode{prenorm}{\setcounter{tocdepth}{-10}}
  \cftinsertcode{preapp}{\setcounter{tocdepth}{3}}
  \renewcommand\contentsname{List of Appendices}
  \tableofcontents*
 \endgroup
}

then I inserted this code right after the Abbreviations section:

 \apptoc
    \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{List of Appendices}
    \cftinserthook{toc}{prenorm}

and then, finally, I added after \begin{appendices}

\appendix
\appendixpage
\cftinserthook{toc}{preapp}

It works pretty well, but both the bibliography and the index have now disappeared from the Table of Contents. They are placed at the end of the List of Appendices. (see picture below) a defective List of AppendicesThe question is: How do I place them back into the ToC?

here is a MWE:

  • This approach writes the index and bibliography toc entries to the ToC that is generated by \apptoc, the real ToC is closed before and rewritten – user31729 Aug 26 '17 at 18:12
  • In the code here, you probably need an extra hook before the bibliography and index, to make sure they come back in the normal toc. – daleif Aug 26 '17 at 18:29

This method uses 'fake' .toc file handles by starting a new .app ToC.

First some explanation what goes wrong with the OP code:

The code from the O.P. effectively closes the .toc file prematurely and adds the following contents like the Bibliography ToC entry or the Index ToC entry to the Appendix ToC -- there is no chance to get them over to the real .toc.

Now here is another approach:

Before \appendices starts in calls the \listofappendices macro that inserts its name to the general ToC but uses the .app file instead of .toc.

From this position, all entries should go to the .app file and not to the .toc, so \let\tf@toc\tf@app is used, i.e. the file handles are changed.

At \endappendices, the original file handles are restored such that any other content goes back to the original .toc.

This solution is similar to another answer I gave here: How to have separate list of Appendix figures?

  • The solution works well. My only issue is that the List of Appendices now appears after the conclusion, while it should be placed right after the list of Abbreviations. Sorry, I should have specified this in the question. The order is: Dedication, Acknowledgments, Abstract, Table of Contents, List of Figures, List of Abbreviations, List of Appendices. – Clemclem Aug 26 '17 at 19:31
  • 'Appendices' should also appear at the end of the ToC and not 'List of Appendices' – Clemclem Aug 26 '17 at 19:39
