[NTG-context] help with forced page break in TOC

Hello Julian,

the mechanism does not work in the typesetting of the TOC.

Whatt you is the following, when the book is in a final stage:

run the file with \showinjector. This will give you in the left margin the numbers of the different TOC-entries.

Now you can say

\setinjector[list] [“the number of the injector where the break must take place][\page]

I hope that this is solving your issue.
Kind regards

I tried variation of it, e.g. since it is the third such title I tried ][extras={3=page}] but that does nothing either.
