### book orange template TOC subsection text issue

the subsection text overwrites the numbering, for more details see the attached picture with snapshotof the issue.

need more space between the numbering and subsction title, such that the Capital V doesn't overwrite the 4 from 21.1.104
Would like to have a correct positioned layout

in structure i have tried to increase
2./the section intendation
3./the contentslable

updated each option seperatly and it doesn't provide me with a good solution.

Any suggestion to solve this.

Welcome to the forum!

Generally, I would use the tocstyle package which calculates the widths automatically. So numbers and text would not overlap in any case. It uses several LaTeX runs to finally adjust.

However, the template uses the `titletoc` package. No problem, but you have to decide the widths. You correctly looked in `structure.tex`. There's this command:

`% Subsection text styling\titlecontents{subsection}[1.25cm] % Indentation{\addvspace{1pt}\sffamily\small} % Spacing and font options for subsections{\contentslabel[\thecontentslabel]{1.25cm}} % Subsection number{}{\ \titlerule*[.5pc]{.}\;\thecontentspage} % Page number[]`

Change, for example, `1.25cm` to `1.5cm` at both places, compile, and take a look. You may want to do it for chapter and section as well.
