I am just finishing off my thesis and have run into the following problem. My front matter contains:

Table of Contents, List of Tables, List of Figures, Nomenclature (renamed to List of Abbreviations in preamble)

Added by lyx and then an Abstract (2 pages) added manually. When I compile the pdf the “List of Figures” header continues to appear on the List of Abbreviations pages and the 2nd page of the abstract. Any idea how I can stop it?






The work included in this thesis represent my own except where otherwise indicated. All relevant permissions have been obtained for figures obtained from published work.




Table of Contents
List of Tables
List of Figures



Musculoskeletal tissue is prone ...


1 Introduction

Musculoskeletal tissue,

Found the solution in another question. Change the lyx Nomeclature entry to ERT:

\renewcommand{\nomname}{List of Abbreviations}
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{List of Abbreviations}
  • In addition to Kurt's important comment: Please post complete examples, not just fragments – user31729 Sep 19 '14 at 14:28
