I would like to have optional supplementary information (or subtitles) for sections that does not show up in TOC, references, ...

For example...

Some Title -- supplementary information


Some Title

...should only appear at the section's beginning, but TOC, references, ... should just show "Some Title" and nothing more.

Is there a command for this?


The ToC should just show:

1 Some Title

The beginning of the section should list all information, i.e. either:

Some Title -- supplementary information

or this way, realized with a subtitle:

Some Title

...but \nameref should only list the main title again. Thus...

See chapter \nameref{sec:sometitle} for more information.

...should show up as:

See chapter Some Title for more information.

So just Some Title everywhere, including ToC, \nameref, ..., but full information at the beginning of the section (and only there).

Do you mean the following?

\section[What shows in the TOC]{What shows at the start of the section}
  • No, I'll try to edit and clarify the question. – daniel451 Jan 22 '19 at 20:14
  • @daniel451: Before saying "No", please test it. If you change \section[What shows in the TOC]{What shows at the start of the section} into \section[Some Title]{Some Title -- supplementary information} and add a \label and \nameref (using either package hyperref or nameref) , you'll should get exactly what you want. If not, please add a MWE to your question (as you should always do). Maybe this would show us, that you are using a class, that does not provide this standard feature in the same way. – Schweinebacke Jan 23 '19 at 7:14
