My thesis board wants my work to be formatted in quite a bizarre fashion; in particular, it asks for “continuous” minitoc at the beginning of each chapter: I had quite an hard time doing that in LaTex and I asked for help with this question that helped me solve most of them.

Two main problems are left:

  1. Inside each mini-TOC (one for each chapter), I'd like sections and subsections to appear with the same font size

Problem 1

  1. I don't want the settings I use in these mini-TOCs to reflect inside the main TOC (for example, I don't want the chapter name to be centered)

Problem 2

What follows is a MWE (I left all the packages I'm using in case that's relevant):

\usepackage[top=3cm, bottom=3cm, left=3.5cm, right=3cm]{geometry}




\newcommand\partialtocname{\large Summary:\space}


{\normalfont\huge\bfseries}{\centering\chaptertitlename\ \thechapter}{0pt}{\contentsmargin{0pt}}

  {\partialtocname \normalfont\small}{\thecontentslabel.\space}{}





\chapter{\centerline{\Large{Chapter One}}}

\section{\large{Chapter One Section One}}
\subsection{Chapter One Section One Subsection One}
\section{\large{Chapter One Section Two}}
\section{\large{Chapter One Section Three}}
\subsection{Chapter One Section Three Subsection One}
\subsection{Chapter One Section Three Subsection Two}
\section{\large{Chapter One Section Four}}
\section{\large{Chapter One Section Five}}


Any help solving these two problems would be much appreciated, thanks in advance!

  • You should really avoid specifying font changes within the sectional titles. That should ideally be done as part of your \titleformat declaration.

  • You mean avoiding the \section{\Large{}}? If so, I'll try to avoid that and thanks very much for your suggestion! Any idea on how I could edit the code to solve those two problems? Commented Mar 23, 2017 at 18:19
  • Yup. Note how you use \normalfont\huge\bfseries within \titleformat for \chapter. You should do similar things for \section and other sectional units that you want formatted.
