1

I am writing a publication-based dissertation. And I want to use the manuscript number in the TOC instead of the section number.

See for example this figure, I want to remove the 2.1 and have as 'sections' the manuscript number. That is, instead of 2.1 Mnuscript 1: title...

I want to have just Manuscript 1: Title....

enter image description here

I tried by using the '\section*{}' command, but that remove that entry from the TOC.

I am using '\usepackage{titletoc}' for the setting of the TOC, and 'scrbook' document class.

Same, I would like to have similar in the section itself: enter image description here

Instead of having 2.1 Manuscript 1: Title... I would like to have just the word 'Manuscript + the contribution number'

Any guidance with this issue? Of course, I want that just for the chapter of contributions, the others chapters should be 'normal'

Kind regards, Here is my MWE:

Almost there. The only issue I have now is that I get Section 2.0 Manuscript 1 and so on.

enter image description here

I want to have, just for that chapter, the "section" footer just the manuscript number. That is, "Manuscript 1", later "Manuscript 2" and so on.

    Replace \section by \addsec. If you add class option headings=optiontoheadandtoc you could use eg. \addsec[head=Manuscript 1]{Manuscript 1: Model Predictive Control ...}. Then you have to remove the \sectionmark commands.

  • @esdd, thanks for your quick response. It partially solves my issue. The problem with your solution is that the section mark for the footer uses a section 'zero'. that is Section 4.0 Manuscript 1 and the same for the other contributions, Section 4.0 Manuscript 2.... And it does that for all manuscripts. Any thoughts? Commented Aug 11, 2022 at 22:41
  • Have you removed the \sectionmark commands as already suggested? They overwrite the settings for the desired result. In your example the section mark is in header but not in footer.

  • @esdd, yes I did. I have edited the original question to add the footer style I use in my document. Commented Aug 12, 2022 at 9:14

Replace \section by \addsec. If you add class option headings=optiontoheadandtoc you could use eg. \addsec[head=Manuscript 1]{Manuscript 1: Model Predictive Control ...}. Then you have to remove the \sectionmark commands.

Additional you have to change your redefinition of \sectionmark to avoid the section number in footer for unnumbered sections. Therefore you can use \Ifnumbered{section}{<true>}{<false>}.

Here is an example without the titletoc stuff (not related to the issue and I do not recommend to use titletoc with a KOMA-Script class):

Additional remarks:

  • \frontmatter sets \pagenumbering{roman}

  • \mainmatter sets \pagenumbering{arabic} and resets the page counter.

  • I have removed the changed \headheight, \footheight and \footskip (also from geometry options). Then I have changed the definitions of \footerline, \footerrightpagenumber, \footerleftpagenumber and the settings of \lefoot and \rofoot
