I came across this problem when I tried to write my dissertation.

Figures were not showing in contents: List of Figures. Neither were the tables. When I tried to compile with \caption{some figure} added, I had an error message.

! Undefined control sequence.
\l@figure #1#2->\ifnum \c@lofdepth 
                                   >\z@ \vskip \cftbeforefigskip {\leftskip ...
l.2 ...paces normal \relax }}{3}{figure.caption.6}

I tried and found a helpful question that was answered by others. Include Appendix as a Chapter in LOF and LOT, and chapters formatting in both lof and lot

So I loaded the code before \begin{document}.



      \addtocontents{lof}{\protect\contentsline {part}%
        {\protect\numberline {\thispartnumber} {\thisparttitle}}{}{} }


However, after loading the helpful setting code into my code before \begin{document}. I found the package subcaption was not compatible. The subfigure package can be an alternative, but its not as good. Additionally, I found the \floatfoot command also produced an error message after I compiled with setting code.

Any thoughts? Thank you!

  • What do you want to achieve? Why do you need the code that you copied? – Werner Feb 20 at 5:57
  • @Werner I edited my question and add the error message. My goal is to load the subcaption package meanwhile preambled the code I copied. I use the codes as I got the error message I posted when trying to add figure/table captions.. Thanks! – Vane Wenjun Zheng Feb 20 at 17:22

I Just found a solution to the question that I posted.

Copy the following code into the preamble:
