# Spacing in listoffigures with alphabetic chapter

At the end of my document I need a last chapter with seperate numbering for additional data. To do this I changed the chapter number to display an A via \setcounter{chapter}{0} \renewcommand{\thechapter}{\Alph{chapter}} The chapter itself consists of only figures, so I easily get a two digit format like A.xx.. In the listoffigures the space between the figure number and the caption text disappears for two digit numbers. Every other caption in the document (including the Arabic numbered ones with two digits) is normal as there is a space. Is there a way to add an additional space to the figure number?

MWE:

\documentclass[abstracton, listof=totoc, bibliography=totoc, twoside, BCOR=5mm]{scrreprt}
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern}

\begin{document}
\listoffigures
\setcounter{chapter}{0}
\renewcommand{\thechapter}{\Alph{chapter}}

\chapter{A Text}

\begin{figure}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\end{figure}

\end{document}


With the KOMA-Script class scrreprt you can use the option listof=flat to get

Note that this needs an additional run.

Code:

\documentclass[abstract=on, listof=totoc, bibliography=totoc, twoside, BCOR=5mm,
]{scrreprt}
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern}

\begin{document}
\listoffigures
\chapter{A Text}
\begin{figure}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\end{figure}

\chapter{A Text}
\begin{figure}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\caption{A Text.}
\end{figure}
\end{document}


Another possibility is changing the width for the figure numbers manually:

\makeatletter
\renewcommand\l@figure{\@dottedtocline{1}{1.5em}{3em}}
\makeatother


The first argument contains the level of the entry, the second sets the indent and the third is the width of the number. The original value of the third argument set by scrreprt is 2.3em.

• The solution worked as far, but a minor problem is ocurring: after introducing \appendix the chapters, sections and subsections get an additional dot after the chapter number which I want to get rid off Jul 23 '15 at 13:45
• To ensure that there will be no dot at the end of the numbers use the option numbers=noenddot.
