          tocstyle.sty has been obsolete for many many years but it had the functionality I needed to emulate the Word style. I couldn't find an alternative at the time but maybe there is such a thing now (maybe that's why it got removed from the distribution).

          In case it helps, according to https://ctan.org/pkg/tocstyle:

          tocbasic and scrwfile should be used instead.

          Howver, I don't know enough Latex to understand if those packages provide the same functionality that tocstyle.

          https://github.com/lsst/lsst-texmf/pull/371 works with mactex 2021 .. but Fails on the docker build on github since it has an OLD tex version ..

           

          this is tocbasic and it looks  ok - Tim is a bit more discerning than I am though ..

          So i think it may be early to force everyone to the latest and will consider adding tocstyle to the lsst-texmf ...
