[Tex/LaTex] How to show \listoffigures and \listoftables on one page and in the ToC

page-breakingtable of contents

Is it possible to put the list of figures and tables onto one page? I only have two tables in my thesis, so having it on an extra page looks quite bad.

I've read about the tocloft package and tried to use it. It moved both lists onto one page, but they're no longer shown in the table of contents.

So is there a way to get \listoffigures and \listoftables on the same page while preserving the ToC entry for them?

Best Answer

You can temporally disable the \clearpage (and/or \cleardoublepage) command which generates the page break at the beginning of the second \listof... command:


You might need to manually adjust the spacing before the second headline.

However without a minimal example that shows your used class and packages I can't test it. It works with the default book class, but then the LoF and LoT aren't added to the ToC in any case.
