I want to do a glossary of images, like when you convert a wikipedia entry to pdf: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Book&bookcmd=download&collection_id=d5ba4f760191b80ba2277ebaa560a6f34ed8f2d7&writer=rdf2latex&return_to=Computer+network

How can I do that on LaTeX?

  • What have you tried? What's the problem? If you don't know where to start, read one of the general introductions to LaTeX so that you know the basics of calling a class and packages etc. – cfr Aug 22 '16 at 23:58
  • Maybe a List of Figures is what you are looking for, see, e.g., en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/… – Marijn Aug 23 '16 at 11:07
  • Yes, the answer from Marijin works. – David Davó Aug 23 '16 at 20:29
  • @Marijn would you like to write an answer? – Dai Bowen Sep 11 '16 at 12:28

Yes, it was the answer from Marijin. I only needed a list of figures. Only put \listoffigures where you want the list. In the caption, you can use [] to set the text that appears in the list of figures: \caption[Text to the list]{Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet}

As defined in: https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Floats,_Figures_and_Captions#Lists_of_figures_and_tables
