I am using example given here by @stephan TOC Section & Subsection coloring. Works great however I want to get rid of dots and page numbers.

I added this to the preamble


that removed the page numbers, but do not know how to remove the dots. I would appreciate your help. Its hard to get result without understanding the basics.

1 Answer 1


Method - 1: Add


in your preamble.

Method - 2: This can be achieved by tocloft package also. Here one has to use


to remove the page numbers and


to remove the dots.

A MWE will be:

% \cftpagenumbersoff{chapters}
\addtocontents{toc}{\cftpagenumbersoff{section}} %% Similarly for subsection, figure... as you wish
\renewcommand{\cftdot}{} %empty {} for no dots. you can have any symbol inside. For example put {\ensuremath{\ast}} and see what happens.
% ----------------------------------------------------------------




  • method-1 worked great, thanks for your help.
