Textpos: absolute positioning of text on the LaTeX page ------------------------------------------------------- Version 1.7i, 2012 November 13 This package facilitates placing boxes at absolute positions on the LaTeX page. There are several reasons why this might be useful, but the main one (or at least my motivating one) is to help produce a large-format conference poster. This package provides a single environment, plus a starred variant, which contains the text (or graphics, or table, or whatever) which is to be placed on the page, and which specifies where it is to be placed. The environment is accompanied by various configuration commands. For the change history, see textpos.html. Textpos has a home page at <http://purl.org/nxg/dist/textpos>. The source is hosted at bitbucket: <https://bitbucket.org/nxg/textpos>, and there is an issues list there, for bug reports. Installation ------------ Download or find the file textpos.sty. Install textpos.sty somewhere LaTeX will find it (see <http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=inst-wlcf>). This package requires the services of Martin Schroeder's package everyshi. You will need to download this package from CTAN first. See <http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported/ms/> or one of the other CTAN hosts.
