Any idea of how to create a mini table of contents (TOC) in the beginning of a chapter? Not the ordinary TOC in the beginning of the report, but a mini TOC in the beginning of a chapter (like, containing the specific chapter).

• Aloha to a new TeX.SX user! You want to have a look on etoc perhaps. minitoc is unmaintained for years now, although it's a quite a nice package. Please provide some minimal document to work with too – user31729 May 21 '15 at 15:58
• Tthe minitoc package, and the titletoc (part of titlesec) packages are designed for such things. – Bernard May 21 '15 at 15:58
• This question is duplicate? – juanuni May 21 '15 at 15:59
• Thank you very much. The etoc was exactly was i was looking for. – Anders May 21 '15 at 16:10
• @ChristianHupfer any idea if the etoc is not working with memoir or any other packages? – Anders May 21 '15 at 16:37

Here is a quick (stock) answer for this:

The easiest way is to use etoc package and its \localtableofcontents macro, at the appropriate place. The manual is at https://ctan.org/pkg/etoc.

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{etoc}

\begin{document}
\tableofcontents % Global toc
\chapter{First}
\localtableofcontents % local toc
\section{First section}

\chapter{Second}
\localtableofcontents

\section{First section of 2nd chapter}

\end{document}


Edit Here is the memoir version.

For some reasons I can't figure out (the manual of etoc is not really clear in this case) it's necessary to use \localtableofcontents*. The individual tocdepth can be controlled with the \etocsettocdepth.toc{sectionlevel} command (note the .toc in the macro name)

\documentclass{memoir}

\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage{etoc}

\setsecnumdepth{subsection}
\etocsettocdepth{subsection}
\begin{document}

\tableofcontents % Global toc
\chapter{First}
\etocsettocdepth.toc{section}

\localtableofcontents*
\section{First section}
\subsection{First subsection -- not in the local toc}

\blindtext

\chapter{Second}
\etocsettocdepth.toc{subsection}
\localtableofcontents*

\section{First section of 2nd chapter}
\subsection{First subsection of first section of 2nd chapter}

\end{document}


• The screenshot shows the local toc for the 2nd chapter – user31729 May 21 '15 at 16:04
• The non-starred \localtableofcontents obey memoir's convention to create (by default) for each TOC a chapter like entry in the .toc file. This creates a bit of havoc, which can be circumvented via issuing (after the global TOC): \etocmemoirtoctotocfmt {section}{\contentsname} to have the .toc file contain a section, not a chapter entry. The starred variants obey again memoir's convention to not create a .toc entry. In both cases issuing \etocarticlestyle` after the main toc is recommended in order to use section headings and not chapter headings as per memoir default. – user4686 Aug 29 '15 at 21:22
