# Horizontal justification for the side comments, in Tufte-Handout style.

I am using Tufte handout template and I see that many of the margin comments (figure captions, footnotes, citations, etc) are not justified/aligned. I was wondering if there is an easy fix for this.

• Which options have you passed to \documentclass? If you passed the justified option, then the body text and marginal text should both be fully justified. – godbyk Nov 16 '18 at 20:41

Use the justified option in \documentclass

\documentclass[justified]{tufte-book}
