My table of contents should have the following properties:

  • oldstyle figures for page numbers and labels
  • chapter entries in spaced, lowercase smallcaps
  • numbers close (en-space) to the entries, no dotfill

You should be able to see in the MWE that oldstyle figures are produced for all labels and the page-numbers of the sections, but not for the page numbers of the chapters.

The oldstyle figures appear, if I comment either the

  • lsstyle command or the
  • \usetocstyle{nopagecolumn}

Both indicated in the MWE. As shown in the MWE-chapter Introduction, the combination (lsstyle, scshape, lowercase) works in normal text and produces oldstyle figures.

Please note

  • there are some problems when setting letterspaced smallcaps with LuaLaTeX. This is why I use the setting \addfontfeature{Renderer=Basic}.)
  • you need Microtype2.5 to reproduce the problem
  • the problem may be related to this tex.SE entry


% !TEX TS-program = LuaLaTeX



\setmainfont[Numbers={Proportional,OldStyle}]{Minion Pro}
\setsansfont[Numbers={Proportional,OldStyle}]{Myriad Pro}

\usetocstyle{nopagecolumn} % comment this to see OSF
\lsstyle % comment this to see OSF


% to show that the combination works in normal text
{\scshape\addfontfeature{Renderer=Basic}\lsstyle\lowercase{aBcDeF 1234567890}}

If I add \settocfeature[toc][0]{pagenumberhook}{} all page numbers are oldstyle. – egreg Mar 3 '13 at 20:14
The empty argument was the trick. I already tried \normalfont and \addfontfeature{Numbers={Proportional,OldStyle}} as pagenumberhook. Still a very weird problem, isn't it? Can you comment why this solution works? – NauC Mar 3 '13 at 20:26
Sorry, but I tried once to understand tocstyle and gave up. – egreg Mar 3 '13 at 20:28
Maybe it is a bug, I don’t know, but the package itself prints out a warning on every run, that it is in alpha state. – Speravir Mar 3 '13 at 21:11
