Description mchristi 2004-07-30 18:55:11 UTC
The problem is this.  When you add a caption which consists of a number of lines
of text and when you also add an index refering to these captions then this
index has a number of entries that are very long.  LaTeX has a nice solution to
this problem.  You can provide a ordinairy caption to an object. This ordinairy
caption then appears above/below the object.  In addition you can also define a
"short caption" that will be used when generating an index.  That way you can
make a nice and long caption detailing for example the contents of a figure and
still have a terse line of text in the index refering to the figure.

A workaround: provided you have caption like this "Illustration 12. The Pirth'
Chart - The typical evolution of a population in a protected area", you can
select "The Pirth' Chart" or any piece of text and mark it as extra TOC entry.

ES->BH: it would be a usefull enhancement, like the "Short name" available for
