## Excluding figures/tables from the lof/lot

Add tags LaTeX specific issues not fitting into one of the other forums of this category.

### Excluding figures/tables from the lof/lot

Is it possible to exclude specific figures from the list of figures? (and likewise for tables from the list of tables)

I have an appendix full of figures but & tables it's making the lists rather long, so I'd rather exclude all tables & figures in the appendices from the lists.

Thanks for any help.

Take a look at the caption package. It lets you customize captions in many ways. Right after starting your appendix, you can exclude the floats very easy.
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
`\appendix\captionsetup[figure]{list=no}\captionsetup[table]{list=no}`

Other capabilities of this powerful package are described in its documentation. You can find it on CTAN or via shell (command prompt) on your local machine.
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
`texdoc caption`

Thanks for the quick reply, that has worked. I was using the old caption2 package so it did take me a while to fix some incompatibilities when replacing it, but it the captions all look nicer now too
