I am using \sidecaption for some of my figures in the document. I have two problems with it:

  1. When I use \LoadClass[12pt, twoside, a4paper]{book}, with twoside the marginnote in\sidecaptiondoes not place it in the outer margin and always keeps it on the right side overlapping the figure.
  2. How do I tell \sidecaption to put it automatically aligned to the top of the figure?

Many thanks!

p.s. I don't want to use tufte-latex!

    Welcome, where can we find the thesis class? Are you sure you are allowed to change the class file? One reason: possible license issue. Another reason: If the layout differs from the intended, the thesis office might reject your thesis. – Johannes_B Nov 6 '15 at 11:16
  • You can find it here: github.com/suchow/Dissertate/tree/master/assets/schools I think it's GPL. – Nader Nikbakht Nov 6 '15 at 13:35

Solution I figured myself

I solved the problem after some more try and error with sidecap package.

\RequirePackage[margincaption,outercaption,ragged,wide]{sidecap}
\sidecaptionvpos{figure}{t} 
\sidecaptionvpos{table}{t}

Then you can format it:

\captionsetup[SCfigure]{labelfont={sf,bf,footnotesize}}
