List of figures is not breaking lines

Postby murilolima » Mon Dec 06, 2010 9:12 am

Hi,

I'm using \listoffigures in my thesis, but when I have a long caption, instead of breaking the line, the caption goes beyond the right corner of the page. Does anybody know how to fix this?

At first I didn't want to use a different/smaller caption at the list of figures. I'm using the 'book' class.


Best regards

Are you using the hyperref package? If you are, add the 'breaklinks' option to get the caption wrapped.

  1. \usepackage[breaklinks]{hyperref}

Yes, you're right, I'm using hyperref. Thanks for the help, it worked prettily.

No problem, happy to help.

Can you now edit the initial post title as solved (use the green tick/check icon)
