# Increase spacing between entries in LOT and LOF

I am modifying a thesis template to satisfy the format requirements of my school. They ask for a single-line spacing within a entry in 'LoT/LoF', but require an extra line spacing between each entry. Something like (for example 'Figure 1.1's name is more than 1 line):

               List of Figures
1.1 aaa
aaaa

1.2 bbb

1.3 ccc


I looked into the .cls-file and changed the line spacing format for 'LoT/LoF' to be single-lined spacing. But I do not know how to increase the spacing between each entry. Right now, my file looks like

Here is some related MWE I have (I paste the whole unmeethesis.cls file here: http://pastebin.com/i2NfxHUf. Also need to create a file called unm12.clo to compile this, which is in the comment (I cannot add two links as a new user to the community)) :

\documentclass[botnum, fleqn]{unmeethesis}

\begin{document}
\clearpage
\setcounter{page}{1}%
\pagenumbering{roman}
\tableofcontents
\listoftables
\listoffigures
\mainmatter
\chapter{AAA}
\section{aaa}
\begin{table*}[!ht]
\caption{Sample Table 1, a very very very very  looooooooooong name for example}
\end{table*}

\begin{table*}[!ht]
\caption{Sample Table 2}
\end{table*}
\section{bbb}

\chapter{BBB}
\section{aaa}
\section{bbb}

\end{document}

• you should make your MWE fully compilable (\documentclass[]{}...) this way the community can help you much better. – naphaneal Sep 21 '16 at 21:31
• @naphaneal i wanted to include as much as I can, but it is just too long from other school's thesis template. I will edit the post to include more. Thank you. – H. Bai Sep 21 '16 at 22:15
• @H.Bai: We may need access to thesis.cls. You can paste it as separate pastes at Pastebin and provides links to those files here. – Werner Sep 21 '16 at 22:20
• @Werner I paste the whole .cls file here: pastebin.com/i2NfxHUf. It is a little bit messy, with a lot of re-definition. Thanks. – H. Bai Sep 22 '16 at 16:35

Would something like this solve your question?

\documentclass[botnum, fleqn]{unmeethesis}

\begin{document}
\clearpage
\setcounter{page}{1}%
\pagenumbering{roman}
\tableofcontents
{
\setlength{\parskip}{20pt}
\listoftables
}
\listoffigures
\mainmatter
\chapter{AAA}
\section{aaa}
\begin{table*}[!ht]
\caption{Sample Table 1, a very very very very  looooooooooong name for example}
\end{table*}

\begin{table*}[!ht]
\caption{Sample Table 2}
\end{table*}
\section{bbb}

\chapter{BBB}
\section{aaa}
\section{bbb}

\end{document}

• This pretty much works!! All I need is to adjust the vertical position of LoT and LoF a little bit. Thanks so much. BTW, since you set parskip, does that mean each entry in LoT/LoF is treated as a paragraph? – H. Bai Sep 22 '16 at 20:30
• @H.Bai If you want to reduce the space between the headline and the lot, try \addtocontents{lot}{\protect\addvspace{-20pt}} \listoftables. I guess they might be individual paragraphs, but I don't know for sure. – user36296 Sep 22 '16 at 20:48
