In the latest Legrand Orange Book template, in the mini table of the table of contents at the start of a 'Part', if a Chapter or subsection is too long, the words get broken up in a "not presentable" fashion:

enter image description here

Could you point out where in the structure.tex file that you can modify the length of this mini page so that I can get more space for the Chapter/Section/Subsection headings. Or alternatively, to keep the same spacing but break up the line into two lines only in this mini page environment...

  • Joe, please check carefully if somebody else edited the post. The system thinks that the code is part of the list, so treated as text. You can insert some normal text inbetween, or use a comment to trick the system. Pretty easy once you know the trick ;-)

Line 391 in structure.tex reads:

\node[anchor=south east] at (\paperwidth-1cm,-\paperheight+1cm){\parbox[t][][t]{8.5cm}{

In this line:

  • -1cm is the miniTOC margin from the right boundary of the page (negative number)
  • +1cm is the miniTOC margin from the bottom boundary of the page (positive number)
  • 8.5cm is the width of the miniTOC

You should increase 8.5cm to allow for a wider miniTOC
