In the current example:

\usepackage[textwidth=6.7in,textheight=9.125in]{geometry} % alter dimensions of document
\usepackage{graphicx} % include graphics i.e. figures
\usepackage[nomarkers,tablesfirst,notablist]{endfloat} %place figures at end of document

\title{LaTeX Example}
This is an example of a latex document with figures and tables included.

\caption{This is my first table}

\caption{Here I describe the figure}

I have a documnet that has a table and a figure. I use the endfloat package to place these at the end of the document where the table is placed first followed by a list of figures and finally the figures themselves. Is there a method for removing the captions from the figures but keeping the caption to the table? By adding an option that removes the caption, it does so for both the figure and the table (I don't want this). To remove only the figure caption, the endfloat manual states to use the caption package:


However, this generates an error, making me think that this command cannot be used with the endfloat package. Any suggestions on how to solve this issue?

    What error do you get when using the caption package? If I use your example document, and add \usepackage{caption} and \captionsetup[figure]{...} it works fine here. – user2574 Oct 12 '12 at 7:16

You can control the caption with \@makecaption and the endfloat package lets you do things at the beginning of the tables \AtBeginTables and the beginning of the figures \AtBeginFigures. Putting the two together gives:

  • Thanks. How could I also remove the page numbering from the list of figures? Or should this be a separate question? – KatyB Oct 10 '12 at 10:42
  • @Kate just like it says in the endfloat manual: \renewcommand*{\l@figure}[2]{ \setlength\@tempdima{2.3em} \noindent\hspace*{1.5em}#1\hfil\newline } – StrongBad Oct 10 '12 at 10:46
