I'm making my thesis with classicthesis but in a style very similar to the Tufte-book. Large margin with sidenotes and images.
I'm using the sidenotes package.
I want to change the color of the captions label (Figure 1.1:) of the figures in the margin. I've tried all sort of option in the caption package but the result is the same.
The normal figure caption is colored like I want, but all the captions in the marginfigure or margintable are back to the basic style, black text and not bold.
All of the above change the classic figure environment (and this is good) but not the ones in the margin.
There is a way to redefine some code in the sidenotes package to edit the style of the captions? I've looked in the documentation but I don't understand which option of the sidecaptions I need to change.
I thought that all of the options for captions and figures used in the sidenotes package were processed with the normal caption or figure environment. But also without call [figure] in the caption option to make it general for all of the possible caption in the document, the color is only changed in all of the captions in the basic figure environment, and not in the margin.
EDIT: Another "problem". When I insert a marginfigure in the first page of a chapter, the image is vertically aligned with the title of the chapter and not with the textblock. There is an option to automatically align text and image without specifying a precise offset?
A similar thing happen when using marginfigure on even page, the figures are all aligned to the outer margin and not to the text. How can I center or align all the figure and caption inside the marginfigure environment? Because sometimes is useful to have all the image very near the outermargin and with a large space between them and the text. In other case is more useful to have the image very near the text or centered in the margin column.
I attach an image that summarise what I want (the second image is inserted randomly only to show the caption label).
