I am using the tufte-book document class for writing a user manual. It involves many short code examples. I would like to achieve the following:

  1. Being able to use [H] with the floats such that the caption will be displayed as usual in tufte at the side.

  2. Having a new float environment that is just the same as figure, but its caption starts with Example. At the same time I would like to keep the option of having figures.

I tried to use the figurerow package for the [H] placement, but the captions are then part of the text, not on the side. The newfloat package can create an Example float, but does not recognize [H] at all. Any ideas please?

It should work like

% ...
% all the preamble
% ...
print "Hello World";
\caption{Hello world}
  • Welcome to TEX.SX. Could you please add a minimal working example? – bmv Jan 13 '18 at 15:54
  • Hi bmv, if I had a working example I wouldn't ask :) But I added an example of the expected syntax. – Isolin Jan 13 '18 at 17:05
