I am using the tufte-book class and want to have the captions of the figure enviroment in a different color, especially the word 'figure 1.1'. How can you do that?

    Since configuration and package choice hugely influence the answer to this question, we need to to provide a minimal example of the setup you are currently using. You will see this request on most questions posed by new users. – daleif Aug 23 '15 at 19:56

You can change the color of the caption using the \setcaptionfont macro provided by Tufte-LaTeX:


\usepackage{lipsum}% provides dummy text

% Change the color of the captions (but not sidenotes, margin notes, etc.)
  \color{red}% <-- set color here



  \caption{This is an example figure.}
