# Remove Figure label in “List of Figures”

I'm using classicthesis of André Miede and I have the following list of figures:

I don't really like the sequence of Figure words (I think it's redundant) and I'm wondering if there's a way to keep only the numbering plus the caption.

Like this:

LIST OF FIGURES

2.1 caption
2.2 caption
2.3 caption
and so on...

Same thing with listings and tables. In chapters, instead, I think it's ok to have "Figure", "Listing" and so on.

I'm not handy with LaTeX so I don't know where to start and even if it's possible!

• @Johannes_B Thanks for your help! I prefered to override the command how Harish Kumar suggested than totally deleting it. If you know some other nice template, please share it! =D – boh717 Jan 22 '15 at 10:09
• I got a little paranoid with classicthesis. There are so many question popping up wanting to revert stuff the template set up or reporting bugs where the template messed up. What features are you using right now? – Johannes_B Jan 22 '15 at 10:20
• What do you mean with features? I'm just writing, but so far I exclude what I asked in this question and the parts division of the work. I set up the floats with a per-chapter numbering and I'm doubtful about making dotted TOCs. – boh717 Jan 22 '15 at 10:32
• I bet you would be very satisfied with the standard scrbook or scrreprt if you were just searching for latex template on google. The TOC looks different, the fonts are different and the margins are. But you can be sure that nothing in the backround messes up. – Johannes_B Jan 22 '15 at 10:36

Add \renewcommand{\cftfigpresnum}{} to your code:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[floatperchapter]{classicthesis}
\renewcommand{\cftfigpresnum}{}
\begin{document}
\listoffigures
\chapter{Chapter}
\begin{figure}
\caption{A figure}
\end{figure}
\chapter{Chapter}
\begin{figure}
\caption{A figure}
\end{figure}
\end{document}
