Excluding figures/tables from the lof/lot

Postby anotherjames » Mon Apr 21, 2008 8:24 pm

Is it possible to exclude specific figures from the list of figures? (and likewise for tables from the list of tables)

I have an appendix full of figures but & tables it's making the lists rather long, so I'd rather exclude all tables & figures in the appendices from the lists.

Thanks for any help.

Take a look at the caption package. It lets you customize captions in many ways. Right after starting your appendix, you can exclude the floats very easy.
  1. \appendix
  2. \captionsetup[figure]{list=no}
  3. \captionsetup[table]{list=no}

Other capabilities of this powerful package are described in its documentation. You can find it on CTAN or via shell (command prompt) on your local machine.
  1. texdoc caption

Thanks for the quick reply, that has worked. I was using the old caption2 package so it did take me a while to fix some incompatibilities when replacing it, but it the captions all look nicer now too :-)
