# LyX:Remove Numbering of SubFigures

I want to remove the LyX Subfigures from the List of Figures. I have searched a lot, and although I find lots of LaTeX answers, I cannot find anything related to LyX.

I followed the instructions on the LyX site to get sub-figures for my PhD Thesis: https://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/Figures#subfigures

I end up with something looking like this:

This works, and taking an example from my rendered PDF, I get this:

My only issue is, I don't want the captionless subfigures to appear in the List of Figures, such as this:

A point in the right direction would be awesome! I'm pretty close to submitting and this is my only outstanding issue!

Thanks!

EDIT1

The third image shows the List of Figures as rendered in the PDF. You can see multiple empty lines of ((a)) and ((b)). I wish to just see the entry for Figure 1.7 in the List of Figures, without the two subfigures shown.

The Document Class is currently Report (Standard Class). Articles don't have chapters.

Here's a cut down example as requested. It has some preamble from my thesis, but the text has been removed.

• It would be helpful to show us what you have tried. Posting a minimal working example that indicates what you are trying to do makes it easier for people to understand what you want. It also makes it easier for people to help you, since they have some code to start from, and much more likely that some one will try to help you. – user30471 Oct 16 '16 at 21:54
• With a default LyX document (article class) the list of figures do not show the subfigures. Moreover the float subfigures must be inside two frameless boxes (aka minipages) to maintain both in the same line (as showed in the PDF image, but not in the LyX screen image) so we do not have enough information about your document to reproduce the problem. The MWE (the LyX file or the exported LaTeX source as seen in a plain text editor) that Andrew asked, not only help to understand what you want, also what are you doing. – Fran Oct 17 '16 at 6:21
• @Fran Thanks for the info. I followed the instructions on the LyX site LyX>Figures>Subfigures to create the top image, as shown in LyX. This renders as the second, with the third as presented in the List of Figures. I want to remove the subfigures. – M1GEO Oct 18 '16 at 4:44

So, after some experimentation, I found the following solution did what I was trying to do. I make no claims as to it being "the right" way to do it, but, it works - pdflatex doesn't complain about anything...
