    Welcome to TeX.SX. Please explain better, what you intent to do. I don't understand it really. If you need to, paint some little picture. Better, you show us some code of what you have tried for so far. Starting with \documentclass{} and ending with \end{document}

  • I've tried lopes of different things - the most promising seems to be to define a new float style in which the caption is absent, but i am not experienced enough in Latex to understand how this would be done.

  • If you want no caption, just leave \caption{} away. For the list: I am waiting on what you have in mind.

The caption package allows you to use

\captionlistentry{figure}{my caption}

for a caption entry in the list of figures (or any other specified float type) without making a caption in the float itself.

  • I have some example code to share, but apparently it's too long.

  • I have: \begin{illustration} \captionlisentry{List Entry} \end{illustration} with a nice picture etc - it all works except the hyperlink from the list to the illustration does not work - goes to the first page

  • any idea how to ensure the hyperlink works in this case?

  • @Roderick Never tried the command at all:-) I just guessed caption would have a feature like that and flipped through its manual. If hyperref and caption are not co-operating you could ping their authors and ask.... Commented Apr 3, 2014 at 15:54
