# Wrong page headers in front matter

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?

\frontmatter

\begin{titlepage}

Title

\end{titlepage}

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

\cleardoublepage
\renewcommand{\nomname}{List of Abbreviations}
\markboth{\nomname}{\nomname}
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{List of Abbreviations}
\printnomenclature
\cleardoublepage
