Dear all,

I have included the list of abbreviations in my thesis using the nomencl package:

PREAMBLE:

\usepackage[intoc]{nomencl}
\renewcommand{\nomname}{List of Abbreviations}
\renewcommand{\nomlabel}[1]{\textbf{#1}}
\makenomenclature

MAIN DOCUMENT:

\tableofcontents
\listoffigures
\listoftables
\printnomenclature[1.5cm]

I have the correct list of abbreviations, with the correct entry in the TOC, but an annoying issue. The LOA is preceded by the List of Tables. When I compile the document, the header of the LOA remains 'List of Tables', and not 'List of Abbreviations' as I would like. I have googled it but could not find any solution, do you have any idea?

I use Miktex 2.8 and TeXnicCenter 1.0.

Hi Mauri,

welcome to the board!

You could use

`\renewcommand*{\nompreamble}{\markboth{\nomname}{\nomname}}`
