I'm going to apply this: How to hide/show section levels in the table of contents? but I also want to not show the numbering in the subsection label. For example, in the next picture I want the subsection label appear BUT without the numbering.

enter image description here

Is that possible? The text is in spanish but the idea is the same. I'm using a book as document class. What I want to get is (using enumerate and itemize environments):

That's what I want in the ToC.

Try this:

% tocsubsecprob.tex  SE 651288

% stop \chapter starting a new page

% print \subsection as requested in the body and the ToC
  \addcontentsline{toc}{section}{\hspace{2em}$\bullet$ #1}}


\chapter{A chapter}
\section{A section}
\subsection{First subsection}
\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{\hspace{2em}$\bullet$ First subsection}
\subsection{Another subsection}
\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{\hspace{2em}$\bullet$ Another subsection}
\mysubsec{Third subsection}
\section{Another section}

enter image description here

Please acknowledge.

  • It works fantastic and I love it but I'd have to change all the sections commands. Do you know any way to do that but changing directly the ToC and not by creating a new command? My english's still a work in progress, sorry if I'm writing incorrectly some things.

  • @Peluche I initially tried to change just the ToC but failed. Perhaps someone else could help. Jul 20, 2022 at 16:55
  • @Peluche Surely your text editor can change all the \subsection to \mysubsec. Jul 21, 2022 at 19:31
