How to trim text in List of Figures / Tables (Latex)

Sometimes we have really long texts in the list of figures and list of tables part (\listoffigures, \listoftables). The text correspond to the captions of the figures and tables.

We can trim the text using an optional argument to the \caption command.

\caption[short text to show in list of figures]{longer text to show next to the figure.}

I learned this trick from the following post
