Problems with node text

Hello,

I have a problem with the text positioning around nodes. When using
the
following code

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}[scale=0.5]
\node[draw,shape=circle] (a)  at (-20,20) {test};
\node[draw,shape=circle] (b)  at (0,0) {my circle};
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}

The code appears on the node topmost node (b), whenever I swap the
node
position, it seems that all text is placed with the lower-left most
node. I
have not a clue what causes this, but all nodes do this, even examples
from
fauskes.net and examples from several other sources, including the pgf
manual.
Also, the same problem occurs with labels around nodes

I use this on the latest version of Ubuntu through Kile, but the
command
line compilation also fails. I have pgf 2.0 by the way.

Regards,

Jewan

I use pgf/tikz, but I don't know what you mean by "swap the node" or
what you expect to see that is different from what this produces.
Maybe post another minimal example that looks bad or different, or
describe the problem more precisely (or both).

You code produces correct output with PGF 2.0 and an up to date
version of pdftex. How do  you compile the example from the command
line?

The problem is probably that you view the output in a DVI viewer that
does not understand/has not enabled ps specials. Try generating a ps
file or use pdflatex to generate a PDF directly.

text + text
What is "text + text" supposed to do right now? It doesn't seem very useful to me. What about making "text + text" as an equivalent for "text || text"? Most strongly-typed programming languages do this. And MS SQL Server too, I think (CMIIW). -- dave ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 1: subscribe and unsubscribe commands go to majordomo@postgresql.org Am Freitag, 8.

problem with importing text with number and text
i am trying to import a csv file (~49000 rows x 52 cols) with numbers text and characters in it and not getting through. xlsread works fine with all my data except the first column of data which is a time stamp. it converts the time stamps into a constant value through the entire column. To add to the problem, when opened as a text file, every row of the file starts with a comma. I got very close with textscan/textread with all the data coming in but all the rows are transposed into one column one above the other ( imagine 49000 rows 52 cells long transposed one above the other in one column c...

problem with child text node when constraining other child node types

I also want X to be able to contain text, resulting in xml that the following <X> <A/> <B/> <B/> child text of element X also possible </X?> I've got the following, but can't seem to figure out a way to also allow for a text child node.

Text Encoding Problems
I am using the code 'convertEncoding(field1.text,encodings.SystemDefault)' to ensure that if a user enters special characters (eg bullet points and so on) into a field, they are saved correctly.

I'm not sure how secure you need it to be, you could use the rot13 method. Used in newsgroups... It changes every letter to the letter 13 places ahead of it. The nice thing about it though is that you use the same method of to decode, (there's 26 letters).

Why treat text nodes as nodes?
One of the things I find most unnatural about most XML APIs is that they try to abstract both elements and text into some kind of "node" object when they have virtually nothing in common. The reason these APIs do it is to make it possible for both text and elements to be children of elements. But there is another way. The XPath/XQuery data model does not allow two consecutive text nodes. As far as I can tell, most XML processing software automatically merges consecutive text nodes. This means that the number of text segments directly under an element is bound by the number of sub-e...

SAX parsing problem, when element contains text like "[text]"
Hello. I try to parse some XML results of PubMed (the largest biomedical article database). The document contains elements like this: <articletitle>[Virus and RNA silencing]</articletitle> Now my problem is that the characters function of my SAX handler is called twice for "[Virus and RNA silencing]". The first time I get "[Virus and RNA silencing" and the second time "]". I am not very experienced regarding XML and XML processing. Why does this happen? Why not one call for "[Virus and RNA silencing]"? And is there a way to set a property for SAX to behave that (only one call) way?
