How to align the captions in the list of figures ?

I have the following code:


This code produces:

Figure 1 xxxxxxxxxxxx....34

Figure 2 yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

I would like to change to look like this:

Figure 1 xxxxxxxxxxxx....34

Figure 2 yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

The problem I want to solve is to remove any "YYY" below the term "Figure 2" and align up with the above caption just when it starts.

    I borrowed the answer from the great Tom at texblog.wordpress.com/2007/07/30/… My code should be: \newlength{\mylen} \renewcommand*\cftfigpresnum{Figure~} \settowidth{\mylen}{\cftfigpresnum\cftfigaftersnum} \addtolength{\cftfignumwidth}{\mylen} Thanks, Fred – user7806 Sep 15 '11 at 9:26
