I don't want subsections to appear in the table of contents of my Lyx document. How do I turn them off? I went to Tools -> Settings -> Numbering & TOC, but it won't let me modify anything.

What should I do?

  • I guess you mean Document -> Settings… -> Numbering & TOC, right? What do you mean by “It won't let you modify anything”? You can't move the slide (is that the right word?) above the window?

Can you use \setcounter{tocdepth}{2}? You would need to insert this as a LaTeX command via the Insert-> TeX menu, and I'm not entirely sure about the number, it might also be 1 or 3.

There is more information about document structure in LaTeX here.

    I'd put it in the preamble (Document --> Settings --> LaTeX preamble). Aug 30, 2012 at 18:31
  • @TorbjørnT. Yes, that is a better idea.
