I'm sorry, I'm new to latex and still have much to learn.

I'm using the report document class and also openright. And this is what my "structure" looks like:




With Introduction and Conclusions starting with chapter*{} in order to have them as unnumbered chapters (and all of them being single .tex files, of course).

How do I have them unnumbered but also appearing in the TOC with the correct page numbering? The only way I found was \addcontentsline, but the lines in the TOC reported wrong page numbers.

Thanks everybody in advance for the help!!

EDIT: forgot to say that I specified that I'm using openright since maybe that's the problem with wrong numbering.

    Where are you putting the \addcontentsline? You should put it right after \chapter* in the intro/conclusion sections. Commented Mar 29, 2021 at 16:00

You have to put the \addcontentsline after the \chapter* command.

% tocincprob.tex  SE 590518
%\setstretch{1.5}  %%% where does this come from?

enter image description here

  • Thank you so much!!! I tried everything but this, I didn't know it had to go in the other .tex file.. as I said, I still have much to learn! Thanks again. I don't know if it was a question for me, anyway I forgot to delete \setstretch as I copied that code part.
