I am converting my thesis from Word to LaTeX, and I saved several huge tables as images.

For my thesis I have to compile a list of tables and figures. I am using \listoftables and \listoffigures.

However, now that some of my tables are given by images, it would add those table to the List of Figures. What would be a good way to list those images to the List of Tables as well (instead of List of Figures).

I could imagine there should be a way to make an invisible table with one cell which contains the table image. Maybe somebody has LaTeX code.

Any ideas are appreciated!

You can simply go


there is no requirement to use tabular in table or to use \includegraphics in figure

The commenters requested code to put the caption in both the lof and the lot, so in cse that is what you meant:

enter image description here






\caption[my (lot) table]{my table}
    {\protect\numberline\thetable\ignorespaces my (lof) table}

    +1 could you mention how to add it to the listoffigures?

    well you could, but I thought the question was to not make it appear there and appear in list of tables (and actually, perhaps more important) keep in sequence with tables. Apr 3, 2012 at 18:55
  • To dodge all uncertainties, you could just add a complete example at the end, with a LoT as well as a LoF (but keep the "abstract" solution at the top for itself).

  • @doncherry, code to duplicate caption in lof and lot, as requested Apr 3, 2012 at 20:41
  • @DavidCarlisle: Sorry, I was being unclear -- I actually meant a MWE showing what the OP requested, plus a LoF, naturally not listing the table, just to show that it isn't influenced by the picture-table.
