I am trying to make a template for people I work with, and they want a "List of Objects" in addition to List of Tables and List of Figures. But they want the "List of Objects" to have the exact same formatting as the "List of Figures" (at least in the table-of-contents level, the formatting of the objects themselves within the text is different problem).

I originally was going to use the tocloft package, but that seems to have all kinds of clashes with the other stuff I am using to typeset the table of contents and LoT/LoF (specifically I am using the titlesec and titletoc packages). But after working on this for a while they finally recently told me that they want the "List of Objects" to have the exact same formatting as LoF; which makes it seems like I could do some kind of "define this command to be the same as that existing command" type thing to quickly build everything I need for the LoO. Unfortunately I don't know what those commands are. I'm in the process of digging through tocloft to see what I can pull out. Since that package is geared toward making very customizable "List of" options, the code has way more than I need, which makes it a bit difficult to use as a template however.

Any suggestions on how to make a new "List of..." that has identical formatting to LoF, but separate commands to add content to the list? Or where I might read into such a thing, easier than digging through the tocloft package?

Edit:: Based on a comment; to clarify I am using the report document class, although I was hoping to avoid other packages if I can, just because I've already used some to tweak the typesetting of the ToC, LoT, and LoF, and the various packages that deal with these things seem to not play well together.

Edit 2:: I pulled out the relevant code from my cls and put it into a MWE of sorts. It's kind of long because I kept everything in it that manipulates the current ToC/LoT/LoF since part of the problem is avoiding unexpected reformatting of the typesetting when loading other packages. Here is the MWE (to be clear, I would like to add to this a List of Objects that mimics the LoT/LoF). Code is heavily commented for added clarity as well.

  • Good point, I forgot to specify the document class. I edited my original question to specify my document class (report) and to also specify that I am hoping to avoid loading more packages if I can. It's not a deal breaker, but it would be preferred if at all possible. – Jason Aug 8 at 22:09

  • This seems to have the "List of Objects" include all tables and figures. The intended "List of Objects" was suppose to be an entirely different and independent list. Thus you could have a \begin{figure}(code)\end{figure}, \begin{table}(code)\end{table} and a \begin{object}(code)\end{object} and have each show up only on their respective lists (thus the table, figure, and object list would have one entry each). – Jason Aug 9 at 19:14
  • @Jason ... I didn't knew what this "object" is ... If you add an "Object" used in your code I could help later – koleygr Aug 9 at 20:26
  • An "object" in this case is just another environment that needs to be listed separately, as it's own separate float. You could even just do a \newfloat{object}{H}{objs}[chapter] in there to define the type of thing I'll be wanting to list separately. – Jason Aug 9 at 22:13
  • Fixed but you should possibly make the counter of objects/figures/tables a common counter in order to not have object 2-1 and table 2-1 in the same time. – koleygr Aug 10 at 8:04
