# Short List of Figures in Memoir

I really like the appearance of the short list of contents, introduced in the memoir manual. What I want is a short list of figures command changing the LoF style similarly. Centered captions followed by page numbers, without these dots in between. I was trying to adopt the code of the short toc command, but it didn't work out. Here is the shorttoc command.

\documentclass [a4paper,11pt,oneside]{memoir}
\setsecnumdepth{section}
\setcounter{tocdepth}{3}

And here is something I tried.

\documentclass [a4paper,11pt,oneside]{memoir}\makeatletter
\newcommand*{\setupshortlof}{%

\renewcommand*{\contentsname}{ShortLof}
\let\oldchangelofdepth\changelofdepth
\let\oldprecisloftext\precisloftext
\renewcommand{\precisloftext}[1]{}
\let\oldcftchapterfillnum\cftchapterfillnum
% \renewcommand*{\changelofdepth}[1]{}
%\setcounter{tocdepth}{0}% chapters
\renewcommand*{\cftchapterfont}{\hfill\sffamily}
\renewcommand*{\cftchapterpagefont}{\normalfont}
\renewcommand*{\cftchapterleader}{ \textperiodcentered\space}
\renewcommand*{\cftchapterafterpnum}{\cftparfillskip}
}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
\clearpage
\setupshortlof
\listoffigures
\end{document}


This doesn't work at all.

Has anyone here already done such a thing or knows how to do it?

### Update:

Thx so far. This one works fine.

\documentclass [a4paper,11pt,oneside]{memoir}

\renewcommand*{\cftfigurefillnum}[1]{%

\let\oldcftbookformatpnum\cftbookformatpnum
\renewcommand*{\cftbookformatpnum}[1]{%
\hbox to\unitlength{{\cftbookpagefont ##1}}}
}
\makeatother
\begin{document}

\clearpage
\setupshortlof
\listoffigures
\chapter{Chaper1}
\section{Section1}
\begin{figure}

\end{document}


Now I'd like to get rid of the figure numbers. I don't want them to be displayed in the LoF. How can I do this?

Works fine ;-), but chapters have nothing to do with figures, change chapter to figure, and as far as I know there is no precis for the lof, and change \listfigurename not \contentsname –  daleif Mar 18 '11 at 11:20
@user4285: Welcome to tex.sx! A suggestion: Change your username to something more telling than "user4285". –  lockstep Mar 18 '11 at 12:59
Thank you for your advice. :-) –  RolandD Mar 19 '11 at 14:17

Add the following to your definition of \setupshortlof:

\renewcommand*{\cftfigurepresnum}{\expandafter\@gobbletwo\@gobble}

Nice. Now it works perfect! –  RolandD Mar 19 '11 at 16:32
