After customizing my Table of contents as shown below, my toc overflows onto the footer and doesn't go to the next page.

Here is the toc customization I have done :


\chtocfont is for using Helvetica as a font for the chapter content line, \sectocfont for using the Lucidia Grande as font for the content line.

Here is a screen shot of the issue I am having. Note that some entries from the toc are not shown at all.

the follow link contains a paste of a tex example show the problem i have : http://pastebin.tlhiv.org/KZus0jGD

Please edit your question to include a complete example that reproduces the problem. Without this it will be difficult for anyone to help you. – Ian Thompson Jul 1 '13 at 15:25
Welcome to TeX.SX, by the way. – Ian Thompson Jul 1 '13 at 15:25
You're using two conflicting packages: either use tocloft or titletoc, not both. If I remove \usepackage{tocloft} and the \renewcommand{\cftdot}{...} line, there is no problem. – egreg Jul 1 '13 at 16:36
it works just by remove \usepackage{tocloft}. thanks a lot @egreg – lcz1 Jul 1 '13 at 16:57

The error is in loading both




that fight with each other for the typesetting of the table of contents, with contradictory instructions.

I suggest you to remove the call to the former (and the connected redefinition of \cftdot).
