In a book I'm writing, I previously used the package **subfig**, which works with **cleveref**, but is inflexible and orphaned. I'm trying to move to the **subcaption** package, which is flexible, but the cross-references are not working. Can anyone provide a way to use **cleveref** with **subcaption**?

You can use the \subref command to reference a sub-caption:


\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[subfigure]{subcaption}
\usepackage{cleveref}

\usepackage{duckuments}% just to get different ducks

\begin{document}
\begin{figure}
\centering
\caption{Pictures of ducks\label{fig:ducks}}
\subcaptionbox
{A most lovely duck!\label{fig:lovely}}{\includegraphics{example-image-duck}}
\subcaptionbox
{Another duck.\label{fig:other}}{\includegraphics{example-image-duck}}
\end{figure}

And in \Cref{fig:ducks} we see different ducks. The one in
\Cref{fig:ducks}\subref{fig:lovely} is especially lovely, don't you think?
\end{document}


gives:
