# Figures missing from the list of figures when using hvfloat package

I'm using the hvfloat-Package to include figures. Unfortunately, some of them are missing from the list of figures. As soon as I set the nonFloat option to true, they reappear. As this looks ugly, it is no workaround for me. I've had a look at the hvfloat manual but couldn't come up with a solution. Can you help me? Thanks. Texworks 0.4.5 r1280, Miktex 2.9 64-bit.

The lof file is empty, btw: \select@language {ngerman}

It seems that you must have the optional caption argument if you want that the figure appears in the list of figures.

I have removed all inessential packages for the MWE. Note that a4wide is deprecated and should never be used.

I have also removed the unnecessary % and added some required ones.

• Thanks very much! Could you comment on why the % is necessary in the places where you put it? – ScarOnTheSky Mar 31 '15 at 10:24
• @ScarOnTheSky Spaces around key-value pairs are automatically removed; on the other hand, you had three spaces in the contents of the figure, because there each end-of-line counts as a space in the output. – egreg Mar 31 '15 at 12:39
