I'm working in a handout where I include few pictures with the helping of the environments figure and marginfigure. But my problem is that when I compile my handout the reference's number of one of the figures doesn't prints in the PDF.

Here is a MWE




%output-decimal-marker = {,},
detect-weight= true, 
range-units = brackets,
list-final-separator = { \translate{and} },
list-pair-separator = { \translate{and} },
range-phrase = { \translate{to (numerical range)} },

The morphology of the intima ranges from adaptive intimal thickening always present in this lesion-prone location to a type VI lesion in advanced atherosclerotic disease. Other cross-sections show sequence of atherosclerotic lesion types that may lead to type VI. Identical morphologies may be found in other lesion-prone parts of the coronary and many other arteries.}

\caption[Flow diagram]{Flow diagram in center column indicates pathways in evolution and progression of human atherosclerotic lesions. Roman numerals indicate histologically characteristic types of lesions enumerated in Table 2 and defined at left of flow diagram. The direction of arrows indicates sequence in which characteristic morphologies may change. From type I to type IV, changes in lesion morphology occur primarily because of increasing accumulation of lipid. The loop between types V and VI illustrates how lesions increase in thickness when thrombotic deposits form on their surfaces. Thrombotic deposits may form repeatedly over varied time spans in the same location and may be the principal mechanism for gradual occlusion of medium-sized arteries. }

Both figures where taken from here and are the 4 and 5 respectively.

In my pdf the reference to the second figure doesn't print any number, and it happens in every reference I make of that. It's strange. All the other features works fine. Now I'm working in a PC with MS Windows XP and MikTeX 2.9 updated, so I don't know what's wrong. I have more figures and all works fine with the others.

That's all, regards.


Your usage of LGRx shows that your TeX system is not up-to-date. The current best way is just to avoid declaring any encoding for Greek. Update your system and modify the preamble as follows:

\usepackage{etex} % should go first

Also I don't recommend utf8x.

Your problem is due to loading subfigure which has been deprecated for almost ten years, now.

Load subfig, instead, without caption, which doesn't cooperate well with the tufte classes:


The syntax is pretty much the same, except that you say


instead of \subfigure and \subtable.

Also, load hyperref last.

  • Thanks, I have problems for compile now because of my text in greek. – Aradnix Feb 12 '14 at 22:48
  • @Aradnix Changing subfigure as indicated should work also in the old setup of babel for Greek. I tried with TeX Live 2012 and it works. – egreg Feb 12 '14 at 22:55
  • Well actually my computer with linux has some problems (not with TeX) and I can't work on it now. I have only MikTeX, is there a way to fix it with MikTeX? – Aradnix Feb 12 '14 at 23:59
  • @Aradnix It should work fine with MiKTeX provided it is reasonably up to date. The suggestions in egreg's answer aren't specific to Linux or any other platform... – cfr Feb 13 '14 at 0:04
  • Well we can install TeXlive in windows too, but in the institute we have MikTeX instead of TeXlive, so as I'm unable to change that I prefer a solution inside MikTeX. At home I use a TeXLive distro running on linux without problems, but my pc is in reparation right now. – Aradnix Feb 13 '14 at 2:17
