I'm writing my PhD thesis with LaTeX-Sweave and I use EMACS with AucTex and ESS. I have a master file (master.tex) and some slave files and my question is about the use of the TOC in the slave files. What should I do to see the TOC on the slave files? Because when I pres C-c= I see only an empty TOC.

Do you have any suggestion?

Take a look at the AuCTeX manual, it has a section called 'Multifile documents'. Try typing C-c _ in each of the slave documents and set the master file to your master file.

Strange, that's all I do to make it work with my multifile documents. Make sure there's a line like %%% TeX-master: "master" at the end of each subdocument. – monotux Sep 1 '11 at 7:49
