# [OS X TeX] Re: Mini Toc

I have now been using titletoc for a good while and it was worth the
hassle as it makes my life a lot easier because I move stuff a lot.

However, I am discovering that I do have, after all, some
typographical sensitivities: while the left side of the chapter toc
is at the left margin, the right side of the chapter toc is both
ragged and at least half an inch short of the right margin.

I was so happy to get it to work that I thought I surely could live
with that. But now it is beginning to bother me a bit. However, I
can't figure out from

http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/titlesec/
titlesec.pdf ,

starting on page 17, what, if anything, controls the right margin.
(Indeed, as the author warns, "this is not a package for the casual
user")

Each (included) chapter starts with

\chapter{Whatever}
\ChapterToc%defined in the preamble below

Hopeful regards
