I want one of the chapters in my memoir book to be unnumbered.

I want it to have a chapter heading, show up in the table of contents, etc.--the only difference being that it is not given a number. Is there an easy way to do this?


You can use \chapter*{Your chapter title} to get an unnumbered chapter, but it will also not include that chapter in the ToC. So you can then say \addtocontents{toc}{Your chapter title} to add the chapter title manually.


Assuming you do not want any numbering at all


then just use \chapter as normal

  • Thanks! But now every subsequent chapter is also unnumbered--I want to unnumber just one chapter in the middle of the book. – jamaicanworm Apr 2 '12 at 20:41

    Then reset those two macros after the chapter. (The \maxsecnumdepth is only needed for stuff before \mainmatter) – daleif Dec 17 '13 at 12:49
