I want to have a part name in more than one line in the ToC, but then the lower lines aren't aligned as the first one. How can I fix that? See pic below. The \documentclass is a report.

ToC part alignment

    Welcome to tex.sx. How this is done will depend on what \documentclass you are using, and you haven't specified that. (Recommendation: Use ragged right when supporting long toc entries. Otherwise, they can look perfectly horrible with very uneven word spacing.) – barbara beeton May 22 at 20:10
  • I use report document class. – Mak Pavičević May 22 at 20:16
  • Could you please post a minimal compilable code that we can play with? – Bernard May 22 at 21:16
  • I don't know how this could help you, but alright, here it is \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{report} \begin{document} \tableofcontents \include{part1} \include{part2} \end{document} and then chapters and parts are in part1 and part2 – Mak Pavičević May 23 at 12:12

Here is a solution. you can replace 2em with a more precise dimension.

\patchcmd{\l@part}{\parindent}{\hangindent 2em \parindent}{}{\err}

\part{Here is a part name in more than one line in the ToC, with the lower lines  aligned as the first one}
\chapter{A chapter of foo}
