I need to add the word Figure and Table to list of tables and figures. I have the code below to obtain this but my code applies extra space to the first line of the text in the list of tables. All the lines should have no indent.

There are some answers about this topic but they are based on tocloft. I have a thesis format, so I need a solution without tocloft.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
    \let\oldnumberline\numberline%
    \renewcommand{\numberline}{\hspace{-1.5em}Table~\oldnumberline}%
    \listoftables%

    \section{A section}

    \begin{table}[h]
        \begin{centering}
            \begin{tabular}{ccc}
                $T_1$ & $T_2$\\
                \hline 
                $75^\circ$ & $25^\circ$\\
            \end{tabular}
            \par\end{centering}
        \caption{\lipsum[4]\label{tab_ref}}       
    \end{table}
\end{document}

  • Is there any reason the \label is inside the \caption? – oliversm May 7 '20 at 13:24
  • For this example, no. But i use \label in my main document, of course. – mert May 7 '20 at 13:27

    Why do you think that an answer that works with the article class would work with your unidentified thesis format? – Peter Wilson May 7 '20 at 16:53

Maybe the following helps:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\let\oldnumberline\numberline
\makeatletter
\renewcommand\l@table{\@dottedtocline{1}{0em}{4em}}
\makeatother

\begin{document}

\renewcommand{\numberline}[1]{\oldnumberline{Table #1}}
\listoftables

\section{A section}
\begin{table}[h]
  \centering
  \begin{tabular}{ccc}
    $T_1$ & $T_2$\\
    \hline 
    $75^\circ$ & $25^\circ$
  \end{tabular}
  \caption{\lipsum[4]\label{tab_ref}}
\end{table}
\end{document}
