I have the following problem: \listoffigures display

1figure Description of the figure.

I want to remove "figure" so it looks like this:

1 Description of the figure.

I hope you can help me. Thank you.

    Welcome to TeX.SX! This looks like a wrong use of \caption etc. Please provide a working document that shows this feature, not just an error 'description'
