Adding list of Figures to PDF

Hi Radu. I was trying to follow your instructions in this post to add a List of Figures to my PDF:


I opened my Book Map file and added "<figurelist/> to the <booklists> section as you directed:

Code: Select all

		<keydef keys="product-vars"
		<keydef keys="role-vars"
		<keydef keys="corp-vars" href="../_common_source/_Variables/Corp_Vars/con_corp-vars.xml"/>
		<keydef keys="doc-set" href="../_common_source/_Variables/Doc_Set_Vars/con_Doc_Set_Vars.xml"/>
		<keydef keys="os-vars"
		<keydef keys="glossary" href="../_common_source/_glossary/con_glossary.xml"/>
But when I generate the PDF, the figure list does not show. I've used the "fig" element for all my figures. Is there some specific attribute for "fig" that I must use to get it to show up in the figure list?

What version of Oxygen are you using?
Are you generating the PDF using our CSS-based engine or using the classic XSL-FO approach?

Hey Radu. I discovered the answer shortly after I posted (how do you retract a post awaiting moderation? Is it even possible?)

Turns out you need a figure title for it to show. I added the Title element and it works fine now.
