So I have just started using tocloft in LaTeX for my report in order to generate a list of equations. The list works fine and it does what I need it to, but the only issue so far is that the heading 'List of Equations' is in much bigger font than the other headings for 'Contents' , ' List of Figures' etc... How can I change this?

Here is the code I have for the list.

\newcommand{\listexamplename}{List of Equations}
\par\noindent\text{Equation \theexample. #1}

Welcome to TeX.sx! I guess that \usepackage[titles]{tocloft} may solve the issue. – egreg Apr 8 '13 at 22:19

As already remarked in different contexts

  1. http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/51900/4427

  2. http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/53806/4427

the package tocloft uses its own method for typesetting the titles of the table of contents, list of figures and list of tables; so, if one's style for chapter headings is different, those three chapters' style will not match the others.

Use the titles option:
