# Wrong positioning of month label tikz calendar

I have the following code:

\begin{figure}[t]
\centering
\begin{tikzpicture}
[every calendar/.style={
month label above left,
month text={\textit{\%mt, \ \%y0}},
week list}]
\calendar[dates=2013-07-01 to 2013-09-last];
\end{tikzpicture}
\caption{Calendar}
\label{fig:Calendar}
\end{figure}


Which produces the following output:

I'm loading \usepackage{tikz} along with \usetikzlibrary{calendar,shapes.geometric}

Any ideas why the label is so misplaced?

UPDATE:

Complete MWE:

\documentclass[a4paper,twoside,11pt,openright]{report}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{tikz}

%Tikz Calendar
\usetikzlibrary{calendar,shapes.geometric}

\begin{document}
Hola.

\begin{figure}[t]
\centering
\begin{tikzpicture}
[every calendar/.style={
month label above left,
month text={\textit{\%mt, \ \%y0}},
week list}]
\calendar[dates=2013-07-01 to 2013-09-last];
\end{tikzpicture}
\caption{Calendar}
\label{fig:Calendar}
\end{figure}

\end{document}

• There are two curly braces \end{tikzpicture}}! – Sigur Apr 29 '13 at 23:43
• I'm sorry, typo while pasting. Fixing the code – Mario S. E. Apr 29 '13 at 23:48
• The problem is still there? – Sigur Apr 29 '13 at 23:49
• Yeap, unfortunately – Mario S. E. Apr 29 '13 at 23:50
• @MarioS.E. please add the complete MWE. – cacamailg Apr 29 '13 at 23:52

For some reason that is not obvious to me now, week list should be given before the month label above left. Probably the default spacing is for a different list and then week list comes afterwards making the spacing wrong.

Also you might use /.append style if you are not sure that you are not overwriting anything.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}

\usetikzlibrary{calendar,shapes.geometric}

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}[
every calendar/.append style={
week list,
month label above centered,
month text={\textit{\%mt, \ \%y0}},
}]
\calendar[dates=2013-07-01 to 2013-09-last];
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}


• If it is not obvious to you, for me it would be unimaginable. – Sigur Apr 30 '13 at 0:16
• I second @Sigur. It worked perfectly, but I have no idea why this happens – Mario S. E. Apr 30 '13 at 0:18
• I actually took the code from: tex.stackexchange.com/a/71039/27833 – Mario S. E. Apr 30 '13 at 0:20
• @MarioS.E., but there they use only one month. – Sigur Apr 30 '13 at 0:21
• @Sigur Yeap, but when you use more than one then you have this error that I showed in this question. I'm really new to the tikz package, so I have no idea what I'm doing here – Mario S. E. Apr 30 '13 at 0:22
