## List of Equations / Table of Equations (continued)I have been trying to come up with a convenient way to make a List of Equations in our report. The key thing to note here is that the report is already typed, and contains dozens of equations in hundreds of pages.
Using tocloft to add the List of Equations usually requires following each equation with a tag such as \myequation{Display name}. To avoid having to add this for all of our equations, I did the following: - Code: Select all • Open in writeLaTeX
`% redefine equation to automatically include our \myequations tag` \let\oldequation = \equation \let\endoldequation = \endequation \renewenvironment{equation}{ \begin{oldequation} }{ \end{oldequation} \myequations{\@currentlabelname} }
To generate the list, I using the following code which was mostly derived from here: http://www.latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=428 - Code: Select all • Open in writeLaTeX
`\usepackage{tocloft}` \newcommand{\listequationsname}{List of Equations} \newlistof{myequations}{equ}{\listequationsname} % myequation takes in its display name \newcommand{\myequations}[1]{ % display name is printed \addcontentsline{equ}{myequations}{\protect\numberline{\theequation}#1}\par}
Then all \equations will appear automatically in the List of Equations. That's great, but there are two problems: - Each \equations displayed name in the List of Equations is not its own \label (eg. Torque) but instead is the name of the \subsection in which it appears (such that dozens of equations have the name "Brushless Motor Fundamentals", etc.
- Equations 2.1 - 2.9 display correctly in the List of Equations but after the equation number hits 2.10 the second digit overlaps with the display name.
- Code: Select all • Open in writeLaTeX
`\begin{equation}` \tau=F\times r \label{eq:Torque} \end{equation}
Note: this is also posted under the "Lyx" forum on Latex-Community since that is where I originally posted and also Lyx is ultimately the program I will use for my final implementation. http://www.latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=12452 - rlevin
