#### framed.sty + chngpage.sty + float.sty

dear latex wizards---I am getting some interactions between packages
framed, cngpage, and float.  I would like to have floats that are style
"float", which have a colored background, and which extend into the
marginparwidth.  alas, I can get floats with colored background, or
floats which extend into the marginparwidth, but not both.  this is
easy to show with the latex segment below.  (if there is a more
advanced package out there that has more features than float.sty that
cover this, please let me know and ignore this post.)  any help would
be appreciated.

sincerely,

/ivo welch

no idea what is going on there, but a simple fix could be

....
\begin{minipage}{\linewidth}
....
\end{minipage}
....

At least my testing shows that it seems to work.

I think there is a package for such wider floats, without the need
for chngpage.  In a float, there's no reason to use {framed} either
because you don't have page breaks.

I expect chngpage isn't altering \hsize, which seems odd.  But
then {adjustwidth} is just a list environment.

I would have done

....
\end{minipage}}}

using macros from chngpage to select leftline or rightline,
or equivalent \hspace.

hi don:  as always, many thanks for the fix.  I am running into two
further "small" problems (well, one big, one tiny).  I need to figure
out how to get a ruled float that begins not at the leftmargin, but at
the leftmargin minus length x.  the reason is that my marginpar notes
appear on the left side on even pages.  the following sample moves the
content of my exhibitbox left, but not the caption and rules.

regards,

/ivo

\newsavebox{\exhibitcontentbox}

\newenvironment{makeexhibitcontentbox}{
\begin{lrbox}{\exhibitcontentbox}%argument is the name of the box
\begin{minipage}{\fullwidth}% was columnwidth
}%
%%%%%
{
\end{minipage}%
\end{lrbox}%
\global\sbox\exhibitcontentbox{\usebox\exhibitcontentbox}
}

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\newenvironment{mytable}{
\begin{table}[htpbH]%
\begin{makeexhibitcontentbox}%
}
{%
\end{makeexhibitcontentbox}%
\checkoddpage%
\ifcpoddpage%
\else%
\hspace*{-1in}% <-- too late.  I need to move the whole float left,
not just the box contents.
\fi%
\end{table}
}

Do you mean ruled float as in one defined by float.sty and
\restylefloat?

color.sty, xcolor.sty, pstricks.sty relationship
Here's the situation. A document, run off on a version of LaTeX about five years old, uses color.sty and pstricks.sty. Works fine. Run off on a current version of LaTeX, it also works fine. However, the DVI output is completely different, and when converted to PostScript, the resulting PS file is also completely different. The printed output appears to be the same--but how can I tell for certain? Also, looking at the LaTeX log shows that color.sty is no longer being loaded at all. Has it been subsumed into xcolor.sty? Finally, looking at the PS files, it appears that one promi...

Are framed.sty and changepage.sty compatible? Or is there a work around?
Hi I want to use both framed.sty (to allow page breaks to occur in framed material) and changepage.sty (so I can get marginal material in the correct margin). But they don't seem to be compatible. More exactly, if I use \checkoddpage inside a framed environment I sometime get the wrong answer. It seems that so far as changepage.sty is concerned, the whole of the framed material is either recto or verso (whereas it can be a combination of both). -- Jonathan Am 30.08.2012 17:37, schrieb jfine: > Hi > > I want to use both framed.sty (to allow page breaks to occur in framed material) and changepage.sty (so I can get marginal material in the correct margin).

fourier.sty and bm.sty
Hi, I just found out that bm.sty doesn't work with fourier.sty. If I call bm before fourier, I ended up with bold italic symbols in CM font. If I call bm after fourier, I ended up with poorman's bold math symbols. However, I'm able to declare a new math fonts \mathbfit, as suggested by the author, by \DeclareMathAlphabet{\mathbfit}{T1}{fut\mathfamilyextension}{bx}{it} and get the real bold italic math symbols in Utopia font, as I want. Did I do anything wrong or fourier and bm are not compatible. Thanks, Xiaotian Xiaotian Sun schrieb: > > If I > call bm after...

incalc.sty, kvsetkeys.sty and packages for use with (e)TeX
Hello Mr Oberdiek, 1) I noticed that you leave the command ...@AtEnd defined after the end of the input. Your packages generally starts with: \TMP@EnsureCode... \edef\...@AtEnd{\...@AtEnd \noexpand \endinput } May be you could add \let\noexpand\...@AtEnd =\relax (or \noexpand\@undefined). 2) I don't know it this is wanted or even possible to know if a package is loaded by \RequirePackage or via \input or \InputIfFileExits (may be the file stack contain some information) but if you: \input intcalc.sty\relax in a LaTeX document you get either: LaTeX Warning: You have requested package ', but the package provides intcalc'. Or: ! LaTeX Error: Can be used only in preamble. The fact that each line conciensciously end with % makes me think that that file could be loaded anywhere... But i admit this 2) point is also a question of design. Best regards.

For both packages, a \ref to an item recovers only the value of the counter, printed as \Alph,...,\arabic, as the case may be. Has anyone ever constructed a package (or used the hook in enumerate, or otherwise patched enumerate or paralist) to recover (either by \ref or by a purpose-built new command) the entire typeset label (e.g., E-II or$\Xi_3\$, as above)? I can imagine one way to do it for cases of the first type (in which the added matter in the label is all prepended to the counter), but am not sure I am up to implementing even that, nor have I (yet?) imagined any way to do it for the general case (in which the counter is, possibly very deeply, embedded in the added matter): so if there *is* an extant solution, I'd be very grateful to see it here.

margins within the framed.sty framed/shaded environments
Hi all, The example below shows that the change-margins-on-the-fly trick from the FAQ interacts funnily with framed.sty. Is there a way around this? Cheers, -- m \documentclass{minimal} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage{color} \usepackage{framed} \definecolor{shadecolor}{gray}{0.8} \newenvironment{narrow}{% \begin{list}{}{% \setlength{\topsep}{0pt}% \setlength{\leftmargin}{4em}% \setlength{\rightmargin}{4em}% \setlength{\listparindent}{\parindent}% \setlength{\itemindent}{0pt}% \setlength{\parsep}{\parskip}% } \item[] }{% \end{list} } \begin{document} \begin{shaded} \begin{narrow} \lipsum[1] \end{narrow} \end{shaded} \bigskip \begin{framed} \begin{narrow} \lipsum[1] \end{narrow} \end{framed} \bigskip \begin{narrow} \lipsum[1] \end{narrow} \end{document} On Dec 12, 12:31 pm, "Mariano Su=E1rez-Alvarez" <mariano.suarezalva...@gmail.com> wrote: > The example below shows that the change-margins-on-the-fly trick > from the FAQ interacts funnily with framed.sty. Is there a way around > this? (It would be good to indicate how what it shows is funny. ) There are two issues. First, the hack doesn't really change the margins, it just makes a list. For lists, framed or shaded should respect the true margins; ie, your original real margins, including the list margins as "white" (shaded) space inside. Other framed/shaded environments can be defined that do not enclose the list margins/indents. Second,...

footnotes in framed.sty
Hello. I am using framed.sty enivronment in order to box large part of text, however I see that footnotes are lost in this way: do you know some tricks to avoid it? Since I am editing a Book, a possibility would be that of putting all the footnotes at the end of each Chapter: how can I do that? Thanx Rachari Off the cuff, all I can think off is: try to enclose the framebox in a minipage environment.

(but i've never looked at the insides of framed.sty more than cursorily. perhaps that's a joy i need to indulge, soon.) >Since I am editing a Book, a possibility would be that of putting all >the footnotes at the end of each Chapter: how can I do that? endnotes.sty ...

Bug in framed.sty
I think I have found a bug in framed.sty 0.8a but I am not sure where to send the bug report since Donald Arsenau hasn't written his email address into the style file. The problem is that the boxes are less wide when a thinner environment as quote or quotation the only object inside the environment. I have not found a way to get it right. Here comes an example: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{framed} \usepackage{color} \pagestyle{empty} \def\FrameCommand{\colorbox{red}}% \begin{document} aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa aaaa...
