The LaTeX minitoc package

Version: 5.5 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

With the minitoc package you can create a table of contents and, optionally, a list of figures and a list of tables, at the beginning of each major document division:

  1. Add the minitoc package to your document.

  2. From the Typeset menu, choose Preamble.

  3. On a new line, type the command for each environment you want:

    Command Environment
    \doparttoc Table of contents for parts
    \dopartlof List of figures for parts
    \dopartlot List of tables for parts
    \dominitoc Table of contents for chapters
    \dominilof List of figures for chapters
    \dominilot List of tables for chapters
    \dosecttoc Table of contents for sections
    \dosectlof List of figures for sections
    \dosectlot List of tables for sections

  4. Choose OK.

  5. For each minitoc environment you want,

    1. Place the insertion point immediately after the heading for the division for which you want a minitoc environment.

    2. Enter a TeX field.

    3. In the entry area, type the appropriate command for the environment:

      Command   Environment
      \parttoc Table of contents for parts
      \partlof List of figures for parts
      \partlot List of tables for parts
      \minitoc Table of contents for chapters
      \minilof List of figures for chapters
      \minilot List of tables for chapters
      \secttoc Table of contents for sections
      \sectlof List of figures for sections
      \sectlot List of tables for sections

    4. Choose OK.

If the document class defines \part, you can create a table of contents and figure and tables lists at the beginning of each part; if the document class defines \chapter, at the beginning of each chapter. You can create the minitoc elements for document sections only if the document class doesn't define \chapter. That is, minitoc elements can't be defined at both the chapter level and section level in the same document.

More information is available in the package documentation. The package is installed in the TCITeX/TeX/LaTeX/contrib/minitoc directory.
