# LaTeX list of figures/list of tables with KOMA-Script additions

I am pretty new to the wonderful world of LaTeX and I need your help.

I want to add the prefix "Abb." to each entry of the list of figures, and the prefix "Tab." to each entry of the list of tables. In addition I want to add a ": " after each number in the lists. I tried the following with KOMA-script but it will not work. It displays just the number and the caption of the figure.

\documentclass[11pt,a4,bibliography=totoc,liststotoc]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[german]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{tocstyle}
\usepackage{tocloft}

\usetocstyle{KOMAlikewithdot}
\settocfeature[lof]{entryhook}{\noindent Abb.\nobreakspace}%
\settocfeature[lot]{entryhook}{\noindent Tab.\nobreakspace}%

\renewcommand{\cftfigpresnum}{Abb. }
\renewcommand{\cfttabpresnum}{Tab. }

\renewcommand{\cftfigaftersnum}{:}
\renewcommand{\cfttabaftersnum}{:}

\begin{document}
\renewcommand{\figurename}{Abb.}
\renewcommand{\tablename}{Tab.}

\listoffigures
\pagebreak

\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=0.7\linewidth]{Bilder/GMH_Fertigungsprozess_mit_Logo}
\caption{Fertigungsprozess der GMH}
\label{fig:GMH_Fertigungsprozess_mit_Logo}
\end{figure}

\end{document}


Kind regards and thanks in advance

• Kick outtocloft, it does harm. texwelt.de/wissen/fragen/6141/verzeichnisprafix-in-koma-klassen Mar 9 '16 at 8:12
• On the other hand: What is the reader expecting in a list of figures? I would be expecting a, well, list of the figures in the document. Suddenly seeing type sock, or type wrench or type milk would confuse me. Mar 9 '16 at 8:15

Do not use two different packages to change the TOC or the lists. With a KOMA-Script class I would prefer package tocstyle because it is part of the KOMA-Script bundle. But it seems to me that there is no additional package needed.

You can use option

listof=totoc,


to get TOC entries for the lists,

listof=entryprefix,


to get prefixes for the list entries,

toc=sectionentrywithdots,


to get dots between the section entries in TOC and their page numbers.

To rename \figurename and \tablename use

\renewcaptionname{german}{\figurename}{Abb.}
\renewcaptionname{german}{\tablename}{Tab.}


and for the : after the figure or the table number in the lists

\BeforeStartingTOC[lof]{\def\autodot{:}}
\BeforeStartingTOC[lot]{\def\autodot{:}}


Code:

\documentclass[
bibliography=totoc,
listof=totoc,
listof=entryprefix,
toc=sectionentrywithdots
]{scrartcl}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{graphicx}

\usepackage[german]{babel}
\renewcaptionname{german}{\figurename}{Abb.}
\renewcaptionname{german}{\tablename}{Tab.}

\BeforeStartingTOC[lof]{\def\autodot{:}}
\BeforeStartingTOC[lot]{\def\autodot{:}}

\begin{document}

\tableofcontents
\listoffigures
\clearpage
\section{Test}
\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=0.7\linewidth]{example-image}
\caption{Fertigungsprozess der GMH}
\label{fig:GMH_Fertigungsprozess_mit_Logo}
\end{figure}

\end{document}


BTW do you really want to use german instead of ngerman?

• Thank your vey much! This works well! I will search for ne ngerman package and will look up the difference. Thank you for tips. I really appreciate it. Mar 9 '16 at 8:58
