# Prevent a part of the caption from appearing in the list of figures

I am using the 'article' class, 'figure' environment.

My captions are divided in two parts:

• the information about the figure
• the credits of the figure (for which I use `\textfff{}`)

In my list of figures, I would like to omit the second part. Would you have a solution, please?

• What does the `\textfff` macro do? – Mico Sep 13 '14 at 8:22
• I meant \texttt{} :) – Eduardo Casseres Sep 13 '14 at 11:38
