This is rather a question of understanding than a problem:
In a thesis, when a table spans over multiple pages, the standard behaviour should, in my opinion be:
- same header/footer, except for the caption, which is appended with "(continued)"
- One entry in the List of tables
In my case, I did it manually with \endfirsthead and \endhead (twice the same "head" except for the word (continued) ) then I had to remove one entry in the list of tables.
This worked but is a lot of work and creates code duplicates, is there a very simple way (e.g. an option) that creates the same result?
