I'm writing a thesis. It is structured as a main thesis.tex document, that uses \include to include individual chapters written in separate documents. I would like to include a mini-toc at the beginning of each chapter. Minitoc works when I write \minitoc in the main thesis.tex document, but not when I write \minitoc in the individual included chapter documents.

For example, my main document contains:

\documentclass[oneside,11pt]{LatexFiles/ThesisClass/MMCCDPhil}
\begin{document}

\frontmatter

\dominitoc
\tableofcontents  
\newpage
\listoffigures
\listoftables

\mainmatter

\include{Chapters/introduction}
\include{Chapters/materials}
\include{Chapters/one}
\include{Chapters/two}
\include{Chapters/three}

\end{document}

and my individual chapters would contain:

\chapter{introduction}
\minitoc
\section{section one}
\section{section two}

In this case, no minitoc is printed in the document.

when I put it all in a single document:

\documentclass[oneside,11pt]{LatexFiles/ThesisClass/MMCCDPhil}

\begin{document}

\frontmatter

\dominitoc
\tableofcontents  
\newpage
\listoffigures
\listoftables

\mainmatter

\chapter{introduction}
\minitoc
\section{section one}
\section{section two}

\include{Chapters/materials}
\include{Chapters/one}
\include{Chapters/two}
\include{Chapters/three}

\end{document}

the minitoc prints out just fine for the introduction.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

I should have set the mtc counter to correspond with the included chapters! Adding:

\setcounter{mtc}{*corresponding previous section number*}

before the \include{Chapters/introduction}

fixed the problem!
