# Minitoc and unnumbered chapters

I am writing my thesis and I have the following problem with the minitoc.

I would like my first chapter (the introduction) to be unnumbered. But when I use

    \chapter*{Introduction}


all the mini-table of contents of the chapters afterwards are shifted. Even worse, they are shifted in the counterintuitive direction: the minitoc of Chapter 1 only comes at the beginning of Chapter 2.

Here is the code.

\documentclass[12pt]{amsbook}

\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage{minitoc}
\setcounter{minitocdepth}{2}

\title{Thesis}

\begin{document}
\maketitle

\dominitoc[n]
\nomtcrule

\tableofcontents

\chapter*{Introduction}
Bla

\chapter{First chapter}
\minitoc

\section{Section 1}
\subsection{Subsection 1}
\subsection{Subsection 2}
\section{Section 2}

\chapter{Second chapter}
\minitoc

\section{Section 1}
\section{Section 2}

\end{document}

• Add \adjustmtc after \chapter*{Introduction}, see page 37 in the manual. – egreg Mar 31 '15 at 17:26

Add \adjustmtc after the unnumbered chapter, see page 37 in the manual, section 1.3.4.

\documentclass[12pt]{amsbook}

\usepackage{minitoc}
\setcounter{minitocdepth}{2}

\title{Thesis}

\chapter{First chapter}
\minitoc

\end{document}


Set \mtcaddchapter after your unnumbered chapter.

• This is a correct answer, however, a miinimal working example (maybe even a screenshot) showing that it really works would be highly appreciated. – Johannes_B May 8 '17 at 5:00
