# Different text in list of figures with images in an itemize list on left side

According to my prior questions: First and Second. Is it somehow possible to have a different caption than what's shown in the list of figures? So what i want to do is basically the following:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{mwe}% just for the example

\usepackage{linegoal}

\newcommand{\mycaption}[1]{%
\refstepcounter{figure}%
#1}}

\begin{document}
\listoffigures
\begin{itemize}
\item \includegraphics[scale=.15]{example-image} \mycaption{caption} \myTitleInListOfFigures{This is another text}
\item \includegraphics[scale=.2]{example-image} \mycaption{another caption} \myTitleInListOfFigures{This is another text 2235434t}
\end{itemize}
\end{document}


Does someone know how to do this?

So the list of figures should then look like:

1.1 This is another text
1.2 This is another text 2235434t
...


Here is a solution with the help of etoolbox package. To be used

\mycaption[This is another text (for list)]{caption (for body)}


if another text is needed or just

 \mycaption{caption}


if same text need to be used

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{mwe}% just for the example

\usepackage{linegoal}
\usepackage{etoolbox}

\newcommand{\mycaption}[2][]{%
\refstepcounter{figure}%
\ifblank{#1}{#2}{#1}}}

\begin{document}
\listoffigures
\begin{itemize}
\item \includegraphics[scale=.15]{example-image} \mycaption[This is another text]{caption}
\item \includegraphics[scale=.2]{example-image} \mycaption{another caption}
\end{itemize}
\end{document}

• Strange, I'm getting the optional argument as caption of the image (where should be "caption" is "This is another text") – Guilherme Zanotelli Sep 22 '16 at 18:39
• it works like this: \mycaption[text in list]{caption in body} and if you want same text you can use \mycaption[caption]{caption} or simply \mycaption{caption} – touhami Sep 22 '16 at 18:50
• No, I found the problem, where there's linegoal{#1} it should be #2. See for yourself. – Guilherme Zanotelli Sep 22 '16 at 18:51
• @GuilhermeZ.Santos ok, i see it, i am sorry. – touhami Sep 22 '16 at 18:54
