# Incompatibility of caption and cleveref package [closed]

The following code produced a TeX capacity exceeded error

\documentclass{scrbook}
\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage{cleveref}
\begin{document}
\begin{figure}
Text
\label{fig:figures:1}
\end{figure}
\end{document}


If either caption or cleverref are not loaded the error does not happen.

Versions are:

caption.sty    2011/11/10 v3.2e Customizing captions (AR)
cleveref.sty    2011/10/24{} v0.18{} Intelligent cross-referencing


I have contacted the authors of both packages, but if someone here can provide an intermediate solution I would appreciate it.

This may be related to the recent update to the cleveref package. (The date is late October 2011, but I believe it was uploaded to CTAN just a few days ago.) I've noticed similar problems since the update but haven't had the time yet to contact Toby Cubitt (the author of the cleveref package). –  Mico Dec 24 '11 at 12:51
Yes, I stripped the code to produce a minimum code example. –  Matthias Pospiech Dec 24 '11 at 12:53
1. An update to the cleveref package is already on it's way to CTAN. 2. I haven't tried it myself but loading the caption package after the cleveref package should help if waiting for the new version of cleveref is not an option. –  Axel Sommerfeldt Dec 24 '11 at 13:01
the update (cleveref 0.18.1) is already on www.tex.ac.uk and (99% certainly) on dante.ctan.org –  wasteofspace Dec 24 '11 at 15:28
