I'm using the tufte-latex class and would like to change the List of Figures style. When choosing the \tableofcontents I supply the notoc argument so that it uses the standard LaTeX style:

\documentclass[justified, notoc, symmetric]{tufte-book}

Is there a similar command to override the LOF? I did try:

\documentclass[justified, notoc, nolof, symmetric]{tufte-book}

but it did not seem to change them. To illustrate the differences, here is the Table of Contents:

and here is the List of Figures: enter image description here

The other customization that I wanted was for the numbers to be hyperlinked, instead of the text. I'm not sure if that is possible to easily do, though so I may just make all of the hyperlinks black instead. I'm using the following command for the hyperlink colors \hypersetup{colorlinks}.

The final customization, is that I wanted hyperlinks to websites to appear in another color. I can't figure out where to tweak that. Usually I use the hyperref package, but tufte-latex already chose colors using the colorlinks arguement. Is there a way that I can edit these options?

Your two last requirements are achieved through the linktocpage and urlcolor=<color> options for hyperref. The first requirement can be obtained with a redefinition of the internal command \l@figure to behave as in the standard book document class. A little example:

\documentclass[justified, notoc, symmetric]{tufte-book}





\chapter{Test Chapter One}
\section{Test section One}
\caption{Test figure one}

\chapter{Test Chapter Two}
\caption{Test figure two}


Some images of the ToC, the LoF, and of the first chapter to see the hyperlink:

oh, wow! Thank you. I just tested it out, and am curious how to make two minor modifications. The first is that for a long figure title, a line is skipped underneath. The second, is how can I add dots to run from text to the number? – celenius May 23 '12 at 2:35
@celenius 1) I need to see a sample document showing the undesired behaviour. 2) For the LoF for the ToC, for both of them? With these new requirements, we have already 5 questions in one! Next time, please open more than one question, focusing on few issues on each one. – Gonzalo Medina May 23 '12 at 2:39
Ah, sorry - I'm getting carried away. Do you think I should move the LoF question to be a separate question completely? – celenius May 23 '12 at 2:42
@celenius: next time... in the meantime I have some new code; I'll edit my question in the next seconds... – Gonzalo Medina May 23 '12 at 2:49
@celsius: code added! – Gonzalo Medina May 23 '12 at 2:50
