This question already has an answer here:

List of figures organize all the figures as the following.

2.1 Caption for 2.1. . . . . . . . .  6  
2.2 Caption for 2.2. . . . . . . . .  7  
2.3 Caption for 2.3. . . . . . . . . 11

and so on. For my dissertation, I need to do

Figure 2.1 Caption for 2.1. . . . . . . . .  6  
Figure 2.2 Caption for 2.2. . . . . . . . .  7  
Figure 2.3 Caption for 2.3. . . . . . . . . 11

and so on. I tried to accomplish this by including the following in my preamble.

\makebox[0pt][l]{\hspace*{-6.2em}\rm Figure \thecontentslabel:\enspace}}%
{}{\titlerule*[0.75pc]{.} \contentspage}

This was working nicely, until I had too many figures. Now the list of figures breaks the bottom margin and does not go on the second page.

Could I modify the code I have above to make this behave in the way it should? If not, could I accomplish my goal in a different way?

Edit: I quickly created an example below. It doesn't have actual figures, but it illustrates the problem I have.

\documentclass[paper=letter, fontsize=11pt, chapterprefix=on, oneside]{scrbook}

\makebox[0pt][l]{\hspace*{-6.2em}\rm Figure \thecontentslabel:\enspace}}%
{}{\titlerule*[0.75pc]{.} \contentspage}

    We need a minimal working example, I just try and there is no problem. – touhami Jul 26 '15 at 6:34
  • if you delete tocloft it will be okay. do you realy need it? – touhami Jul 26 '15 at 7:10
  • In my main document, yes, I do need it. If I comment it out, it does not compile the pdf file. – BzTAK178 Jul 26 '15 at 7:12

    in this case may be better to use \renewcommand{\cftfigpresnum}{\makebox[0pt][l]{\hspace*{-6.2em}\rm Figure}} from tocloft rather than \titelcontents – touhami Jul 26 '15 at 7:25
  • I don't recommande \rm – touhami Jul 26 '15 at 7:28
