# Remove sub captions from list of figures

I have this code. In my list of figures "subcaption1" and "subcaption2" appears. I only want "hej" to appear in the list of figures, how can I do that?

\begin{figure}[htbp]
\begin{minipage}[b]{0.5\linewidth}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{Chapters/xxxx.jpg}
\caption{subcaption1}
\label{fig:chapter001_dist_001}
\end{minipage}
\hspace{0.5cm}
\begin{minipage}[b]{0.5\linewidth}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{Chapters/xxxx.png}
\caption{subcaption2}
\label{fig:chapter001_reward_001}
\end{minipage}
\caption{hej}
\end{figure}

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem. – Skillmon Jun 2 '18 at 8:25

You can use the subfig package.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{subfig}
\begin{document}
\listoffigures
%%
\begin{figure}[htbp]
\subfloat[][\label{fig:chapter001_dist_001}subcaption1]{%
\includegraphics[width=0.47\linewidth]{example-image-a}}
\hspace{0.06\linewidth}
\subfloat[][\label{fig:chapter001_reward_001}subcaption2]{%
\includegraphics[width=0.47\linewidth]{example-image-b}}
\caption{hej}
\label{fig:chapter001__001}
\end{figure}
In Figure~\ref{fig:chapter001__001} there are two figures, Figure~\ref{fig:chapter001_dist_001} and Figure~\ref{fig:chapter001_reward_001}.
\end{document}


EDIT

As requested in comments here is also a solution using the subcaptionpackage. There the subcaptions are not listed in the list of figures by default.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{subcaption}% [list=true] to get caption in listoffigures
\begin{document}
\listoffigures
%%
\begin{figure}[htbp]
\begin{subfigure}[b]{0.47\linewidth}
\includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{example-image-a}
\caption{subcaption1}
\label{fig:chapter001_dist_001}
\end{subfigure}%
\hspace{0.06\linewidth}%
\begin{subfigure}[b]{0.47\linewidth}
\includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{example-image-b}
\caption{subcaption2}
\label{fig:chapter001_reward_001}
\end{subfigure}%
\caption{hej}
\label{fig:chapter001__001}
\end{figure}
In Figure~\ref{fig:chapter001__001} there are two figures, Figure~\ref{fig:chapter001_dist_001} and Figure~\ref{fig:chapter001_reward_001}.
\end{document}

• Could you extend you answer adding also an example with subcaption package? – gvgramazio Jun 2 '18 at 9:20
• @gvgramazio, I have added it. That is probably a better solution. – StefanH Jun 2 '18 at 9:58
