LaTeX: Formatting List of Figures to say 'Figure 1'

  1. Aug 19, 2011 #1
    Hello all :smile: I am hoping someone can help with this:

    When I use the \listoffigures command in LaTeX, it shows up as follows:
    Code (Text):

    List of Figures

    1    Caption of figure 1.  .......................... 1
    2    Caption of figure 2.  .......................... 2
     
    But I wanted to actually say Figure 1, Figure 2, ... like this:

    Code (Text):

    List of Figures

    [I]Figure 1:[/I]    Caption of figure 1.  .......................... 1
    [I]Figure 2:[/I]    Caption of figure 2.  .......................... 2
     
    thank you :smile:

    go into the style file and add "Figure" to the counter for the list of figures command

    %For List of Figures to say Figure X.X
    \renewcommand{\cftfigfont}{Figure }

    %For List of Tables to say Table X.X
    \renewcommand{\cfttabfont}{Table }
