I'm trying to format the front matter of a thesis and am running into trouble with both the table of contents and the list of figures.
The current table of contents looks like this:
- List of Figures
- List of Tables
- 1. Introduction
- 2. etc.
What I want to do is get rid of the "Chapter" heading in the above, so right after List of Tables, it starts with "1. Introduction". Any ideas?
Also, for the list of figures. It automatically puts the figure caption when generating the list, but my captions are long. I want to keep them long in the text, but short in the generated list of figures. Is it possible to, say, just include the first sentence of the caption for the list of figures?
Thanks for your help.
