Problems with Table of Figures and of Tables RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a 41 page document with multiple tables and figures and tables of contents, tables, figures, and appendicies.  The TOT and TOF are behaving in a way I cannot understand.  For example, I have one figure that does not register when I update the whole TOF.  I have deleted and re-inserted the caption and I have copied and updated a caption from a figure that works properly.  But the TOF still doesn't register it.  I have successfully referenced the figure elsewhere in the document.  I have gotten the TOF to register the figure by adding another caption to the end of the first.  The caption then reads "Figure 2-1  <text> Figure 2-2".

    After a complete update of the TOF, the entry appears like this:

      Figure 2-1  <text> Figure 2-2

    and there is no entry for Figure 2-2

    I can delete the second "Figure" and the TOF still recognizes the figure.  But if I delete any one of the numbers (the fields), the figure is no longer recognized.

    What's going on?
