I am using the tufte-book class. After using symmetric option, some misalignment do appear.

Please, compile the minimal example to check:

page 7: Perfect
page 43: Misaligned
page 79: Misaligned
page 115: Perfect
page 116: Misaligned

The package mparhack didn't help.

Something else is not flat: page 5 should be blank in my opinion. Can the header be deleted?

How can I fix this?

\documentclass[b5paper,symmetric,raggedright,marginals=justified]{tufte-book}

\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{makeidx}
\usepackage{mparhack}

\makeindex
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\mainmatter

\begin{fullwidth}\part{Concepts, critics and proposals}\end{fullwidth}
\input{calllipsum.tex}

\begin{fullwidth}\part{Complementary material}\end{fullwidth}
\input{calllipsum.tex}

\begin{fullwidth}\part{Case studies}\end{fullwidth}
\input{calllipsum.tex}

\backmatter
\printindex
\end{document}

The file calllipsum.tex just populates the text with several \index entries.

  • Auxiliary file is here: py4olb.no-ip.org/public/calllipsum.tex – otaviolb Jul 5 '19 at 21:38
  • I see no misalignment in the pages with “Part”, 7, 43 and 79. – egreg Jul 8 '19 at 12:41
  • As far as I can see, fullwidth only works for something that is completely on an odd page and doesn't behave with material that spans several pages. – egreg Jul 8 '19 at 12:47
  • \fullwidth was used with \part for a single line in the whole page. The output of the compilation with pdfTeX version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.17 is here. Pages 43 cuts letter "C"; page 79 is not centered; and page 116 cuts the numbers at right side. Without the option "symmetric", the result is ok. There is clearly something wrong with this option. – otaviolb Jul 9 '19 at 20:38
