Someone in my lab pointed out that all the links to figures in the pdf
point to the figure caption such that after one follows the link the
caption is at the top of the page view, not the figure itself.  The
figure is not visible and the reader has to scroll up to see it.

The label has to follow the caption or the figure number gets lost in
the calling text so I can't just move the label up.  So how can I get
hyperref to "do the right thing" and point to the top of the figure
environment?  Alternatively, can it be made to just point to the
relevant page?  I didn't see options for this at


I'm using:
