I basically have this:


\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\textsc{Part I: PART ONE TITLE}}
\part*{\textsc{Part I: PART ONE TITLE}}

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\textsc{Prologue to Part I}}
\chapter*{\textsc{Prologue to Part I}}
\markboth{\textsc{Prologue to Part I}}{\textsc{Prologue to Part I}}

I would like to reference the page that was created by this -- it is a page that simply says "Part I: PART ONE TITLE" in the middle of the page. How do I do this?

I tried adding \label{Part I} after the \part*{} command, but it references to the last section in the chapter before it...

  • why are you using an unnumbered \part* and then numbering by hand? Feb 23 at 22:34
  • @DavidCarlisle Because I want to remove the numbering without removing it from the table of contents... My main chapters are numbered, but the epilogues, "Part #", and prologues are not.

  • but if you have no part number (which is fine) why reference it as Part 1 ? Feb 24 at 1:15
  • I do want them to have part numbers, but not contribute to the numbering of the other stuff in the TOC, so I had to use unnumbered \part* and manually number them. [For the purposes of the question I posted, "...Part I..." is simply arbitrary text...]

  • Now it's less clear to me. The part numbering doesn't usually contribute to the numbering of the other stuff in the TOC. Chapters (the next level down) continue regardless of the parts.

Sorry -- I realize now that this is essentially just referencing an unnumbered object.

I followed this -- specifically I added a \label and used \hyperref[]{} (since I want it to say "Part I" and not "Part I: PART ONE TITLE").
