Thanks Hans, for your quick reaction.

Maybe my question was not clear enough but in any case your remedy does not help me.
I have adapted your MWE containing the remedy a bit to make the problem a bit more obvious:

\setinjector[list]    [][{\blank[3*big]}]

     	\startsection[title=Alpha]  \index{first}  \stopsection
    	\startsection[title=Beta]  second \index{second} \stopsection \stopchapter
    	\startsection[title=Gamma] third  \index{third}  \stopsection
    	\startsection[title=Delta] fourth \index{fourth} \stopsection \stopchapter
What I would need is a forced page break in the ToC, in this example before Chapter 2.
A few months ago this could still be accomplished by inserting into the preamble "\definelistextra[page][before=\page,after=\page]",  and 
"\placelist[chapter,section][criterium=text,extras={1.2=page}]" in the text.
But now, with the same version of mkiv, nothing happens.
Has this method of forcing a page-break in the ToC mysteriuosly diswppeared or do I use the worng command?

Best regards,
Robert Blackstone
