I have a sidecaption in a Memoir class document that is very long. I need to create a short version of that caption for the list of figures. I have tried

\begin{sidecaption}[short caption]{long caption}

but that doesn't work, the "short caption" just disappears. How do I make a short caption when using Memoir's sidecaption environment?

    (1) welcome, (2) next time you have a question please make the code into something compilable as is. That makes it a lot easier for others to help – daleif May 4 '16 at 17:48

OK, I don't know what happened. But apparently the code that I used in my question:

\begin{sidecaption}[short caption]{long caption}

does work. I must not have compiled the code enough times. Possibly it takes 3 times - at least with my system. I had done it two times when I posted the question.
