7.8  List of Figures

1st PAGE

   
Page Title Type “LIST OF FIGURES” in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, 12pt.
This should be typed 2 line spaces from the top margin, and centered within the left and right margins.
Text start text 2 line spaces after the page title; double-spaced
Alignment

Figure designations (Figure 1, Figure 2, …) are flush left

The first letter of every figure title must be in line with one another. The best way to do this is to set a “left tab”. AVOID using the space bar because unevenness usually results.

Page numbers are flush right.

Spacing Each entry should be single-spaced, double space between entries. For example, the title of Figure 13 extends beyond one line and has two lines single-spaced. However, the space between Figures 13 and Figure 12, and the space between Figure 13 and Figure 14 are double-spaced. Such spacing facilitates reading.
Case

use title case

Entry Page Numbers Each entry shown should have a page number with leader dots from entry to page number that should be flush with the right margin. There should also be one space after the last letter of text before the leaders dots begin, and a present space before the actual entry page number.
Leader Dots

Leader dots will most likely all start at different places, but they must all end at the same place; that is, the last dot for every entry must align with all the other entries.

If you anticipate having three digits in your page numbers because the length of your thesis will be 100 pages or more, preset the end of the leader dots with a right justified tab accordingly. As a result, and spacing before 2 digit numbers will be larger than that before 3-digit numbers … but the end of the leader dots will all be the same.

Page Number roman number, lower case: “viii” or the number that follows the last page of the List of Tables, the immediately preceding page.
