# Exported TOC in LyX centers Part headings

I have two matching documents with notes for two different classes. The document class, preamble, etc. are all the same. In one file, when I export it, the TOC centers the Part headings, in the other, the Part headings are Left justified. I want them to be Left justified, but do not understand what coding I may have unintentionally inserted into LyX that would cause the Part headings to center-justify in the TOC. Can somebody help me with this? How do I keep my file from center-justifying the Part headings in the TOC?

I'm using LyX 2.0.6. on Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.3. I can post screen shots should this be helpful.

UPDATE 1: %% LyX 2.0.6 created this file. For more info, see http://www.lyx.org/. %% Do not edit unless you really know what you are doing.

• Welcome to TeX.SX! I think you should show us at least some bits of the code and the LyX configuration file. – user31729 Apr 27 '15 at 18:34
• Happy to do so! I'm new to this, so let me know if this is what you're asking for. I've added the code for from a Tex file I exported up to the point of the first Part heading in my question above. – Jacob Young Apr 27 '15 at 20:05

I seriously hope this is faulty introduced by the user and not code generated by LyX.

You cannot just call \tableofcontents inside the date field.

• @Jacob If the table of contents was inserted in the date, then that would generate that code. To fix this in LyX, change "date" to "standard". – scottkosty Jul 22 '16 at 9:48
