I created list of abbreviations in my thesis using following after `\begin{document}. It created the List of Abbreviations correct, but it appear in table content in wrong order. I want the List of Abbreviations to come before the list of appendix tables. I am using a this template enter link description here. Would anyone help me please?

 \frontmatter
    \setcounter{page}{12}   
        \heading{List of Abbreviations}
        \noindent 
        AMPA\dotfill Aminomethylphosphonic Acid\\
        \mainmatter

enter image description here

Here is my MMW

    \documentclass[ms-thesis]{ndsu-thesis}


\abstract{This is the abstract for my thesis.}
\acknowledgements{I acknowledge people here.}
\dedication{This thesis is dedicated to my cat, Mr. Fluffles.}
\preface{You can put a preface here.}

    \begin{document}
        \frontmatter
        \setcounter{page}{12}   
        \heading{List of Abbreviations}
        \noindent 
        AMPA\dotfill Aminomethylphosphonic Acid\\
        \mainmatter

    \heading{The First Chapter}
    \section{Introduction}
    This is a section of my thesis.

    \heading{The Second Chapter}
    \section{Excellent results}
    This is another section of my thesis.
    \subsection{Minor results}
    This is a subsection of my thesis.

    \begin{table}[h]
    \centering
    \caption{Table captions go at the top of the table}
    \begin{tabular}{rl}
    Number & Month \\
    \hline
    1 & January \\
    2 & February \\
    3 & March
    \end{tabular}
    \end{table}


    \bibliographystyle{plain}
    \bibliography{my-bib-file}

    \appendix
    I can include appendix material here. See Figure \ref{figure_a} below.

    \begin{appendixfigure}
    \centering
    You could include a figure here.
    \caption{Figure captions go at the bottom of the figure}
    \label{figure_a}
    \end{appendixfigure}

Use preto from etoolbox package to add your code right before \listofappendixtables is entered.

\usepackage{etoolbox}
    \preto{\listofappendixtables}{
            \heading{List of Abbreviations}
            \noindent 
            AMPA\dotfill Aminomethylphosphonic Acid\\
                        }

\begin{document}

%% DO NOT USE \maketitle!!!

%% DO NOT USE \chapter!!!
\heading{The First Chapter}

This is the first chapter. Use \textit{blank lines} between paragraphs; never use \texttt{\\} to create new `paragraphs'!

This is a second paragraph.

\section{Introduction}
This is a section of my thesis.


\heading{The Second Chapter}

\section{Excellent results}
This is another section of my thesis.
\subsection{Minor results}
This is a subsection of my thesis.
\begin{table}[h]

%% Uncomment these lines for a bibliography. Remember to upload your .bib file and update the file name here accordingly!
% \bibliographystyle{plain}
% \bibliography{my-bib-file}


\appendix  %% For unnamed appendix
% \namedappendix{Appendix title}  %% For named appendix
Note that this class does not support the use of multiple appendices.

I can include appendix material here. See Figure \ref{figure_a} below. Use \texttt{appendixfigure} or \texttt{appdixtable} in the Appendix.

\begin{appendixfigure}
\centering
You could include a figure here.
\caption{Figure captions go at the bottom of the figure}
\label{figure_a}
\end{appendixfigure}

\begin{appendixtable}
\centering
You could include a table here.
\caption{Table captions go at the bottom of the figure}
\label{table:a}
\end{appendixtable}

\end{document}

NOTE: You should not set the page number manually in tables of contents or lists. LaTeX automatically detects the page number and place it there for you.

  • @user192739 Use \renewcommand{\newline}{\\[\baselineskip]} right after \heading{List of Abbreviations} then start the list of abbreviations entries and use \newline to finish each entry. Jul 13 '19 at 20:58
