The aebtilebg Pack­age Author: D. P. Story Dated: 2015/08/22 Ver­sion: v1.1

This pack­age is a sim­ple ap­pli­ca­tion of es­tab­lished pack­ages graph­icx, mul­tido and AeB Web. The pack­age takes a rect­an­gu­lar graphic and uses it to tile the back­ground of the pages.

Down­load your fa­vorite tiled back­ground swatch from the In­ter­net, con­vert it to an .eps or a .pdf for­mat (de­pend­ing if you use dis­tiller—should work for users of Ghostscript as well—or pdfla­tex and xe­la­tex), place that im­age in the same folder as your source doc­u­ment. Now, any­where in your doc­u­ment, use the com­mand setTileBgGraphic to cre­ate your tiled back­ground.

Other fea­tures: Turn tiling on or off, Draft mode (an pack­age op­tion) used dur­ing the con­tent de­vel­op­ment stage. Change the way the tiles are laid out, change from top-to-bot­tom to bot­tom-to-top.

In­stal­la­tion In­struc­tions: Unzip the dis­tri­bu­tion where your la­tex in­stal­la­tion looks for pack­age files. Unzip­ping will cre­ate a cre­ate a folder named aebtilebg, and the files will be de­posited in this folder. Don't for­get to re­fresh you file­name database, if you sys­tem re­quires it. Read the doc­u­men­ta­tion in the doc folder, and view the ex­am­ples in the ex­am­ples folder.
