I'm using the package fixme and the command \listoffixmes which generates a list of fixme notes on a page titled List of Corrections. However, the title appears in the table of contents and messes with the other section titles throughout the front matter. I'm using amsbook as my document class.

Do you use a KOMA-Class with the option listof=totoc? –  Marco Daniel Jul 21 '11 at 20:00

I guess you are using KOMA. In this case you can redefine the heading. It is important that you create a minimal example.

\documentclass[listof=totoc]{scrartcl}

\usepackage[draft]{fixme}
\makeatletter
\@mkboth{\@fxlistfixmename}{\@fxlistfixmename}%
}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\listoffixmes
\clearpage
\section{foo}
Text\fxnote{hallo}
\end{document}


EDIT:

fixme uses an old definition of the heading. According to the package scrhack you can redefine the listoffixmes so that toxbasic is used. So you can use setuptoc{}{} to influence every \listof.... Here an example:

\documentclass[]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[draft]{fixme}
\makeatletter
\setuptoc{lox}{chapteratlist}
\renewcommand*{\listoffixmes}{\listoftoc[{\@fxlistfixmename}]{lox}}
\makeatother

\setuptoc{lot}{totoc}

\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\listoffigures
\listoftables
\listoffixmes
\clearpage
\section{foo}
Text\fxnote{hallo}
\end{document}


For more details see the documentation of KOMA.

EDIT 2

Explanation documentation amsbook:

In amsart.sty \@startsection, \@sect, and a couple of other things are redefined to fix a few hard-coded things that would interfere with the desired style. The most noteworthy difference is that all section headings will go into the table of contents (governed by secnumdepth as usual), EVEN WHEN THE * FORM IS USED. The only section heading not listed in the table of contents is the heading for the toc itself.

\documentclass[]{amsbook}
\usepackage[draft]{fixme}
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\listoffigures
\listoftables
\clearpage

Hi Marco, I'm using amsbook not KOMA. Can you port your code to that document class? Thanks! –  user02138 Jul 22 '11 at 0:38
