Are there any parameters which allow to set a padding between the last word of a figure in the list of figures and the page number. I have the problem below, and I have not been able to find any solution in the documentation.

Issue with padding

Thank you very much!

    I would rather use a shorter title for the caption, at best with \caption[short title]{long title}

  • replace 2014 in the [..] "toc" title optional argument to \caption by some {\protect\linebreak[4] 2014} ?

You do not say, which document class you are using. Most document classes typeset the page number in TOC, LOT, LOF, etc. in a box of width \@pnumwidth. For example, article.cls uses


Try increasing this box using in the preamble

\renewcommand\@pnumwidth{2em} % Maybe needs adjustment!
  • Thank you Boris, this worked perfectly. For the record, in case is useful for someone else in the future, I was using a report class.
