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}

MWE

\documentclass[justified]{tufte-book}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents*}{references.bib}
@book{dirac,
  title={The Principles of Quantum Mechanics},
  author={Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac},
  series={International series of monographs on physics},
  year={1981},
  publisher={Clarendon Press},
}
\end{filecontents*}
\begin{document}
\section{Main text}
\sidenote[][-3cm]{sidenotes\\ This is a justified side note. This is a justified side note. This is a justified side note. This is a justified side note. This is a justified side note } \cite{dirac}
\lipsum[2]

\begin{marginfigure}
\rule{\textwidth}{2.6cm}
\caption{Caption of a figure that is aligned properly. Caption of a figure that is aligned properly. Caption of a figure that is aligned properly. Caption of a figure that is aligned properly. Caption of a figure that is aligned properly. }
\label{fig:marginfig}
\end{marginfigure}
