# minitoc suppress before/after space

Is there any way to easily customize \minitoc to avoid the big before/after space?

Without using \vspace{-5mm} everywhere I use them (which is in a lot of chapters), and, only as a last case recourse, without resorting to hacks such as this: How to suppress extra vertical space before/after fancy Verbatim environments?.

The minitoc manual is too huge for me to parse it, and my latex skills are still in their infancy. :)

MWE:

\documentclass{report}

\usepackage{minitoc}

\dominitoc

\mtcsettitle{minitoc}{}
\mtcsetrules{*}{off}

\begin{document}

\faketableofcontents

\chapter{Chapter One}

The following topics will be explojlkmemdl.dm,dl d,wd,dw dwwfeefr ffwfewefef feef feeffe red:
\minitoc

\section{Section One One}
\subsection{Subsection One One One}
\subsection{Subsection One One Two}

\end{document}


try this

\documentclass{report}

\usepackage{minitoc}
% this
\mtcsetfeature{minitoc}{before}{\vspace{-.5cm}}
\mtcsetfeature{minitoc}{after}{\vspace{-.5cm}}
% or this
%\mtcsetfeature{minitoc}{open}{\vspace{-.5cm}}
%\mtcsetfeature{minitoc}{close}{\vspace{-.5cm}}

\dominitoc

\mtcsettitle{minitoc}{}
\mtcsetrules{*}{off}

\begin{document}

\faketableofcontents

\chapter{Chapter One}

The following topics will be explojlkmemdl.dm,dl d,wd,dw dwwfeefr ffwfewefef feef feeffe red:
\minitoc

\section{Section One One}
\subsection{Subsection One One One}
\subsection{Subsection One One Two}

\end{document}

• Using \mtcsetfeature{minitoc}{before}{\vspace{-...}} didn't work for me. After a lot of frustration I realised that I needed the starred version of \vspace, i.e.: \mtcsetfeature{minitoc}{before}{\vspace*{-...}} – John J. Camilleri Aug 30 '17 at 14:13
