I am facing a problem by left aligning long entries in the LOF using the tocloft package. Although my TOC for long entries looks perfect and aligned, the LOF is not :( . I am using the command

 \caption[Short caption]{long caption} 

to introduce shorter captions in my LOF.

Here an example:

Figure 1.1  This is an extremely long long
        long caption not well aligned...........2
Figure 1.2  This is a normal caption............3

I needs to be:

Figure 1.1  This is an extremely long long
            long caption not well aligned.......2
Figure 1.2  This is a normal caption............3

I realized that the problem actually comes due to the fact that I am adding before each Figure number the word "Figure". If I remove this command,

\renewcommand{\cftfigfont}{Figure } % Add the word Figure in LOF

then everything is OK in the LOF.

How can I both have it correctly aligned and using the word "Figure"? I would appreciate any help.

Thank you a lot! George

Here the entire code I am using, where you can see the problem in the last page (LOF).
