The document contains several tex pages which are included with \input. The main.tex has \usepackage{todonotes} and a command to generate list of todos \listoftodos. The other page contains \todo{some note}. I see the todo note itself but the list of todos is empty.


Tried to have \todo and \listoftodos on the same page - the same result. latex --version is "pdfTeX 3.1415926-1.40.10-2.2 (TeX Live 2009/Debian)". Tried with two versions of todonotes.tex - "2012/07/25" and "2012/07/25". Thanks.

    You should update your system. TeXLive 2009 is a little bit old ,,,

You need to run pdfTeX on your file at least two times to see the list.
