Thanks for this tip. I hope I see this article two years ago:-)

2. Good package! – I wish I had known about this yesterday, my document was getting jumbled and mixed up with table, equation, and figure references.

3. I’m trying to use this package with the memoir class and it doesn’t work. Do you have any idea about implementing this package in the class memoir?

• Hi Charlie,

Interesting! I briefly tried to reproduce the issue and it works for me (see code below). Please provide a minimal working example and I’ll try to help you.

Thanks, Tom.

\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage{showlabels}
\begin{document}
\begin{figure}[ht]
\centering
\rule{4cm}{3cm}
\caption{default}
\label{fig:default}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

Thanks a lot, I knew there had to be a way to do this.

• Louis

For those who have long labels, you might want to rotate them to avoid going over the edge of the document:

\usepackage{rotating}
\usepackage[right]{showlabels}
\renewcommand{\showlabelsetlabel}[1]
{\begin{turn}{90}\showlabelfont #1\end{turn}}
• Cool, thanks for this! Tom.
