This is the README file of the placeat package. The package provides several commands to place content at an arbitrary position of the current page in any document. For orientation, a grid is drawn. Simple graphical elements like arrows and circles can be easily drawn and positioned.

To produce the package files, run lualatex on placeat.dtx, wich should result in the creation of the following files:
  placeat.pdf  (documentation)
  placeat.sty  (LaTeX user interface)
  placeat.lua  (Lua package code)

You need an up-to-date TeX Live (2013) and compilation with LuaLaTeX to use this package. A full, updated MiKTeX should also work. (Not tested.)

The pack­age pro­vides com­mands so that the user of Lua may po­si­tion ar­bi­trary con­tent at any po­si­tion spec­i­fied by ab­so­lute co­or­di­nates on the page. The pack­age draws a grid on each page of the doc­u­ment, to aid po­si­tion­ing (the grid may be dis­abled, for ‘fi­nal copy’ us­ing the com­mand \placeat­setup).
