I am having an issue with generating my dissertation using cleveref, where the figure references are references are off by one, such that the reference to figure 1.1 says Fig. 1.0. Anyone have any ideas what would be causing this?

I am using cleveref. A sidenote that may be related, when loading hyperref (which I do before cleveref), I use the option "colorlinks = false", but the links are still colored.

Any help would be appreciated.

\usepackage{subfig}       % for figures with multiple subfigures
  \tikz \fill [orange] (1,1) rectangle (2,2);
  \caption{A figure.}
A reference to \Cref{fig:1}

  • I am unable to reproduce the error you're getting from the MWE you've posted. Which TeX distribution, which versions of the subfig, hypcap, and cleveref packages do you use?

  • I'm running texlive 2014.34853-1 from the Arch Linux Extras repository. The dates in the source files are: Hypcap version %% Version: 2011/02/16 v1.11, subfig version date = "2005/07/05", cleveref v0.19

1 Answer 1


So in making a MWE, I found the solution. Apparently there is a conflict with subfig, hypcap, and cleveref. I don't need hypcap so I was able to just comment it out and everything works.
