# List of figures without figure numbers

How can I create a List of Figures which has captions and page numbers, but no figure numbers?

-
Do you then also don't want any figure numbers on the actual figures? –  Martin Scharrer Jul 22 '11 at 12:46
You can use the package caption. –  Marco Daniel Jul 22 '11 at 13:03

\begingroup
\renewcommand\numberline[1]{}
\listoffigures
\endgroup


but of course this won't suppress the figure numbers in the captions to the figures.

A more complicated setting with tocloft that allows to better control the appearance is

\usepackage{tocloft}

\renewcommand\cftfigpresnum{\setbox0=\hbox\bgroup}
\renewcommand\cftfigaftersnum{\egroup}
\setlength\cftfignumwidth{0pt}
\setlength\cftfigindent{0pt}


In this way the captions will start flush with the left margin.

That may be too tricky for newbies to use \setbox0=\hbox\bgroup ... \egroup. So is my previous answer \font\dummyfont=dummy ... \dummyfont. –  Leo Liu Jul 22 '11 at 13:16
Well, \dummyfont is quite tricky as well. –  egreg Jul 22 '11 at 13:29
@egreg Excellent. Thanks. The tocloft approach worked perfectly. –  BrigalowDad Jul 22 '11 at 20:47

As is said by Marco, the easiest method may be to use caption package:

\usepackage[listformat=empty]{caption}


Also, titletoc or tocloft package will help, if you use them to modify contents format.
