I am trying to add a subtitle to toc's title.

Here is what I have done so far :


% **************************
% Change toc's title ("Contents")
% **************************

    \fontsize{25}{12}\selectfont My new title

% **************************
% Two column's toc :
% **************************



I have tried doing this :

    \fontsize{25}{12}\selectfont My new title \\ My subtitle

But my toc won't generate after that.

Thank you all for your help !

Using the tocloft package, you can put the \contentsname in a \parbox{\linewidth}{}, and then horizontally center with \centerline{} and break lines with ~\\ (why the ~?):


% Uncomment the two lines below if you want a two-column ToC

\centerline{Nice ToC}~\\[-1em]%
\centerline{\Large Some Subtitle}%



    \section{Some Section}\section{Some Other Section}




Now, what exactly's going on behind the scenes here, I don't know. But hopefully this still helps.

  • Hello ! Thank you for your help. But it seems that your solution doesn't work with a two-columns toc.

  • @Guliup it does if you use package multitoc (see edited answer, inspired by this blogpost). I hope that works for you

  • @Guliup I suspect this question is also related to this other question of yours; see my answer there for more details.
