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


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!

    Did i ever mention that i hate classicthesis because it is a very bad template and should vanish from the face of the earth? Please remove line \renewcommand{\cftfigpresnum}{\figurename~}%Fig.~} from the package file. For the tables, remove \renewcommand{\cfttabpresnum}{\tablename~}%Tab.~}

  • @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 Jan 22, 2015 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?

  • 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. Jan 22, 2015 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.

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

    \caption{A figure}
    \caption{A figure}
