# Horizontal alignment of a tabularx environment inside a figure

I'm making some figures that must have with a little description in a tabularx environment. I'd like to align the tabularx to the left margin, however it continues appearing in the center.

I'm using the ltablex package for other tasks in the document (e.g. \keepXColumns), but this package appears to be the responsible for my frustration. How can I align a tabularx environment to the left in this conditions and using these packages? There another alternative packages?

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{graphicx,graphics}
\usepackage{ltablex}%<---This package

\begin{document}
\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{example-image-a}\par
\footnotesize
\raggedright
\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{>{\bfseries}rX}
Description 1:&Some text\\
Description 2:&Some text\\
\end{tabularx}
\caption{This is a figure example}
\end{figure}

\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{example-image-a}\par
\footnotesize
\begin{flushleft}
\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{>{\bfseries}rX}
Description 3:&Some text\\
Description 4:&Some text\\
\end{tabularx}
\end{flushleft}
\caption{This is a figure example}
\end{figure}

\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{>{\bfseries}rX}
Description 5:&Some text\\
Description 6:&Some text\\
\end{tabularx}
\end{document}


• Off-topic: Don't load both graphicx and graphics; the former should suffice. – Mico Nov 2 '17 at 5:29

you were on right track :-) how you use \keepXColumns? it works fine for me:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{graphicx,graphics}
\usepackage{ltablex}%<---This package

\begin{document}
\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{example-image-a}\par

\footnotesize
\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{>{\bfseries}rX}
Description 1:&Some text\\
Description 2:&Some text\\
\end{tabularx}
\caption{This is a figure example}
\end{figure}

\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{>{\bfseries}rX}
Description 5:&Some text\\
Description 6:&Some text\\
\end{tabularx}
\end{document}
