# vspace in LoT vs. starred chapters

EDIT: I originally thought it was tocloft that creates the space between different chapters in the LoT. I was wrong. I edited the title, but left the original question.

I'm currently facing the following problem: I'm using the tocloft package for my ToC, LoT and LoF. By default (?) it adds a vspace of 10pt between tables and figures of different chapters. However, this does not seem to work with starred chapters. Here's a MWE:

\documentclass[a4paper, oneside, 11pt]{report}
\usepackage{tocloft}

\begin{document}

\listoftables

\newpage

\tableofcontents

\newpage

\chapter{This is chapter one}

\begin{table}
\caption[Table 1]{This is table 1}
\end{table}

\chapter{This is chapter two}

\begin{table}
\caption[Table 2]{This is table 2}
\end{table}

\chapter*{Appendix\markright{Appendix}}
\renewcommand{\thetable}{A\arabic{table}}
\setcounter{table}{0}

\begin{table}
\caption[Appendix Table]{This is a table in the appendix.}
\end{table}

\end{document}


And here's a screenshot showing the problem:

As can be seen in the screenshot, the vspace between Table 2.1 and Table A1 is missing. Does anyone have a solution?

It is the \chapter command that adds the space to the LoF and LoT but \chapter* does not do that. You could define a new macro to add the space and call it whenever you use \chapter*.

\documentclass{report}
