# List of figures empty? [closed]

My list of figures is empty.

I have in the preamble (I don't know if it's relevant):

\newfloat{figure}{thp}{lop}
\floatname{figure}{Figure}

\begin{document}

...

\listoffigures{figure}{List of Figures}

...

\begin{figure}
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[scale=0.25]{../north_coast.eps}
\caption{Map of the North Coast Region.\label{fig:North Coast Region}}
\end{center}
\end{figure}

\end{document}

• a) figure is a standard float environment, so why define it anew? b) You did compile at least two times, didn't you? c) Always try to provide a compilable example. – lockstep Aug 8 '12 at 18:59
• Another thing: Dont use the center environment inside floats: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/2651/… – lockstep Aug 8 '12 at 19:04
• @ lockstep: I have just changed the center thing. Very useful indeed. a) I don't know?; b) of course! like hundred times; c) not sure how to do that. @ Simon: About the \label{}: I do have it! – Cost Aug 8 '12 at 19:09
• Ad a) If you don't know what \newfloat and \floatname does, try to delete these lines, compile again and look for the difference. – lockstep Aug 8 '12 at 19:38
