Hi Joel,

I think you can achieve what you want by using \placelist[chapter,section] instead of \completecontent. Then you can start the TOC by \startchapter[Content] \placelist…. \stopchapter. The same approach can be used for other lists/indexes.

Kind regards

Willli

> The problem I'm facing, is anytime a chapter title is called, such as "Content" in complete content, or something in the appendix, such as one of the indexes, no number is printed above, so the vertical distance from the top of the page to the top of the chapter title changes. I need these to be consistent, as there is a background image, with vertical lines.

But when calling \completecontent or a similar title that won't get a number, because the number isn't placed, it is vertically higher on the page, but I need it to be printed the same height, as it it had an invisible number.
