Adding a List of FiguresAfter you've added several captions below figures, you can insert a list. You can insert the list after the table of contents. Or, you can place it anywhere else in the document--for an example, you might have the list in a appendix at the end of the book. To insert the table of figures, you use the Table of Figures dialog.
- Open the document you created...the one with the inserted captions.
- Click your cursor in the place where you'd like to insert the list of figures.
If you're trying to place the list at the end of a table of contents, add a few empty lines and then add a page break (Ctrl + Enter).
- Display the Table of Figures dialog.
--Word 2003: Select Insert, Reference, Index and Tables, and the Table of Figures.
--Word 2007/2010: On the Reference menu, locate the Captions group, and click the Insert Table of Figures button.
The Table if Figures dialog appears.
- Confirm that Tab leader field has leader dots selected, and then click OK. The list appears.
As you add more graphics and captions to your document, you are going to want to update the list. To do so, highlight any portion of Table of Figures, and press F9. A dialog appears.
