I'm currently finishing my thesis and have an issue with my tocs: I need an overview toc first, which contains chapters (top level) only. Afterwards I need to have a full toc, which contains chapters, sections and subsections (numbered) plus subsubsections (w/o numbering).

To achieve that I used the shorttoc package. That works pretty well!

My problem is: The shorttoc lists itself, as well as the full toc, that lists itself, too. How do I prevent the shorttoc from appearing in itself and how do I prevent the toc from appearing in itself? I want shorttoc to list toc and toc to list shorttoc.

All I found was a thread about hiding other entries from shorttoc but not toc, that didn't work sufficiently for me.

Here is my (almost minimal) working example:

\documentclass[11pt, oneside]{Thesis} % The default font size and one-sided printing (no margin offsets)
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{microtype}
\usepackage{shorttoc} % Für Inhaltsübersicht

% TOC configuration[![enter image description here][1]][1]
% Chapter numbering only for level 1-3
\setcounter{secnumdepth}{2}
% Show 1-4 in TOC 
\setcounter{tocdepth}{3}

\begin{document}

edit 2: esdd suggested to remove \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Inhaltsübersicht}, but this removes the overview toc from the full toc also. Just to make really clear what I need, I attached two pictures of the tocs and how I would like to edit them: Overview TOC Full TOC

Thanks in advance for any help!

    As we don't have your class we can't test the issue. Try to reproduce it with e.g. book.cls. Aug 16, 2018 at 15:15
  • Remove \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Inhaltsübersicht} from your code. This should remove the entries for the shorttoc.
    – esdd

  • @UlrikeFischer : Sorry, I forgot to attach the class. I hope it's okay to provide the class instead of reproducing the issue with a built-in class?

  • @esdd : Thanks for your advice, unfortunately it removes the "Inhaltsübersicht" (overview toc) from both of the tocs. I provided two pictures, which should clarify my needs.

  • Your class redefines \tableofcontents and adds there \addtotoc{Inhaltsverzeichnis}. Aug 17, 2018 at 7:12

I'd simply remove all references to table of contents (short and long) in both lists.

If you want to keep them, change, in Thesis.cls,

\btypeout{Inhaltsverzeichnis}
\addtotoc{Inhaltsverzeichnis}

into

\btypeout{Inhaltsverzeichnis}
\addtocontents{toc}{\string\ifdefined\string\weareinshorttoc}
\addtotoc{Inhaltsverzeichnis}
\addtocontents{toc}{\string\fi}

and in your document change

% Top Level TOC
\shorttoc{Inhaltsübersicht}{0}
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Inhaltsübersicht}
\clearpage

into

% Top Level TOC
\begingroup\def\weareinshorttoc{}
\shorttoc{Inhaltsübersicht}{0}
\addtocontents{toc}{\string\ifdefined\string\weareinshorttoc\string\else}
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Inhaltsübersicht}
\addtocontents{toc}{\string\fi}
\endgroup
\clearpage

  • Thanks a lot! That did exactly what I wanted. Now I need to do some research on the if-syntax in LaTeX, in order to understand your suggestions ;-)
