I have one chapter for my listings

%%% Document Class


and the next one for the acronyms


The problem is that the headline which reads next to the page number (I don't know how to call it) on the second page of the acronyms chapter is still "Listings", I dont know how to change it. I'm using pdfLaTeX.

  • What document class are you using?

    Add the line \markboth{Acronyms}{Acronyms} next to the \addcontentsline. Is the dbvdoc class accessible for checking whether there's a better way?

possibly with some formatting to make them agree with the other headlines.

If the class is book or is based on book, one could simply say


provided this is between the \frontmatter and \mainmatter declarations.
