Sorry if this quetion have been unanswered previously, but I am unable to follow the possible solutions in simmilar previous questions asked in the forum. I am very new to LaTex. Currently, I am writing my dissertion paper which use a certain template. Using the template, I am getting the following List of Figures page:

Current Style

While I want something like this:

Expected Style

I am currently using:

\usepackage{tocloft} % it serves to make lists of the most beautiful figures and tables

\renewcommand{\cftfigfont}{Figure } % to add "Figures" in the list of figures

% List of Figures

Please let me know how to solve this issue in case list entry with long sentences.


Please read again the tocloft documentation.

% lofprob.tex SE 561254

%\renewcommand{\cftfigfont}{Figure }
\renewcommand{\cftfigpresnum}{Figure }  % put Figure before number
\setlength{\cftfignumwidth}{5em} % need more space for Figure + number



\chapter{A chapter}

\caption{Regular caption}

\caption{A caption that will take more than one line in the List of Figures}


Use \cftfigpresnum to put something before the number and increase \cftfignumwidth to allow for the increased space required for the modified number.
