I am trying to create my table of contents, but I want the text "Appendices" to have the same font size as a part (Investigation). How can I increase the font size? Also, I have tried \addcontentsline{toc}{part}{Appendices}, but that was entitled "Investigation Appendicies" (which...fail...), and I couldn't seem to change the cftpartpresnum at that point. Here is my MWE:

\usepackage[margin=1in, headheight=4em]{geometry}
\geometry{letterpaper}                  % ... or a4paper or a5paper or ... 


%% Rename "Part" to "Investigation" and append that label to the table of 
%% contents  
\renewcommand{\chaptername}{Investigation \Roman{part} --- Part}
\renewcommand{\cftpartpresnum}{Investigation }
\setlength{\cftpartnumwidth}{\widthof{\textbf{Investigation \textrm{IV}:}}}
\renewcommand{\cftchapaftersnum}{ -- }
\setlength{\cftchapnumwidth}{\widthof{\textbf{Part B --}}}


%% Change formatting of the part so that things can be on the same page

\titleclass{\part}{top} % make part like a chapter
\titleformat{\part}[display]{\centering\normalfont\Huge\bfseries}{\partname\ \thepart}{0pt}{\huge}


%% Remove headers from blank pages

\chapter*{My maddness}
What can I say, I'm on a Tolkien kick.

\part{The Hobbit}

\chapter{Bilbo Baggins}
\chapter{Thorin, Oin, Gloin, and the nine}
\chapter{The dragon under the mountain}

\part{The fellowship of the Ring}

\part{The two towers}
\chapter{Gandalf the White}

\part{Return of the King}
\chapter{Mount Doom}
\chapter{Who cares?}


  \chapter{Concerning Hobbits}


enter image description here

Also, it would be good if the "Part" disappeared before the A and B in the appendix labels. But one problem at a time.


I found an answer to this question and applied it here.

  • I removed the appendix package
  • I added the redefinition of the \appendix macro below

         \protect\setlength{\protect\cftchapnumwidth}{\widthof{\textbf{Appendix B --}}}

Then I just added this to the end:

\chapter{Concerning Hobbits}
