Following a previous question regarding caption modification in a long document (with a nice solution proposed by @egreg), I ended up using the changes package to handle corrections. As my document is in french, I also use the babel package with french option.

Using [french]{babel}, [final]{changes} and the caption redefinition leads to a compilation error

Removing either {babel}, [final] or the caption modification shows no error.

Can anybody clarify the issue ?

  • On my system, when I add \usepackage{graphicx} at the start, the code runs without error (and produces the desired effect with the additional information stripped from the List of Figures). Which error message do you get exactly?

  • @Marijn I added the errror in my question. It seems that the \caption modification is treated as a string and not evaluated... Or maybe I am totally mistaken. If I ignore the error, the document seems ok, but I'd prefer not leave it this way. I also added the graphicx package and the same error shows up

  • It is a string (see the .aux file at the \newlabel statements) but that should not be a problem. Maybe and old version of something, could you post the *File List* that you get by putting \listfiles below \documentclass{article}? This list is visible in the terminal and in the log file, near the end.

  • @Marijn I added the file list, all my packages are up-to-date according to miktex

You want to use the expansion of \seq_item:Nn:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[dvipsnames,svgnames]{xcolor}
\usepackage[french]{babel}
\usepackage[justification=centering]{caption}
\usepackage[final]{changes}
\usepackage{xparse}
\usepackage{hyperref}

    Thanks. Just to be sure, can you explain when the caption modification is made ? I had the impression that with the previous solution, the modification was treated as a string in the first pass, then evaluated during the second run. I don't think I understand the process.

  • Your solution works on the MWE, however, when I apply it to my original document, I still have (different errors). In the .lof file, for captions containing \added \replaced or \deleted calls, I may get \contentsline {figure}{\numberline {IV.9}{\ignorespaces \added [id=N}}{107}{figure.caption.135}... I think I will remove all of these calls from the captions.
