I'm having a problem with titlesec's explicit option. Here's an MWE:




\chapter{hi there}


In this example code, we redefine the \chapter command. In my real example, I use the explicit option because I need to pass the title of the chapter to a complicated Tikz code. However, as it's written, the \chapter* of \tableofcontents doesn't display any heading at all.

The question is: how do you work titlesec when the explicit option is on, to allow the printing of starred chapters?

  • May be this answer for section can help you: tex.stackexchange.com/a/380116/120578 . You can use the same code for chapter instead and keep or not keep the old definition

    You need to add an \titleformat command for the numberless chapters too. See the linked duplicate for an example.
