I am trying to display the prefix (i.e., Figure or Table) in List of Figures and List of Tables. I am using ConTeXt MkIV.

I used \setuplist[figure][prefix=yes] and \setuplist[table][prefix=yes], to no avail. The lists were generated but they show the caption and table or figure number without the prefix Table or Figure. What am I doing wrong?

Appreciate any help.

What you want is the label of float and not the prefix.





\placefigure{Dummy figure}{\externalfigure[dummy-1]}
