Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
Pro­vides the macros \trim­box, \clip­box and \ad­just­box as an ad­di­tion to the macros \re­size­box, \scale­box and \ro­tate­box from the 'graph­ics' pack­age. It reuses the key=value in­ter­face of the 'graph­icx' pack­age. The 'pgf' pack­age is used to im­ple­ment the trim­ming and clip­ping op­er­a­tions as well as to parse the nu­meric val­ues. En­vi­ron­ment ver­sions of the macros are also pro­vided. Both macros and en­vi­ron­ments sup­port ver­ba­tim con­tent.
This pack­age is at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/la­tex/con­trib/ad­just­box .

ad­just­box – Graph­ics pack­age-alike macros for “gen­eral” boxes

The pack­age pro­vides sev­eral macros to ad­just boxed con­tent. One pur­pose is to sup­ple­ment the stan­dard graph­ics pack­age, which de­fines the macros \re­size­box, \scale­box and \ro­tate­box , with the macros\trim­box and \clip­box. The main fea­ture is the gen­eral \ad­just­box macro which ex­tends the “key=value” in­ter­face of \in­clude­graph­ics from the graph­ics pack­age and ap­plies it to gen­eral text con­tent. Ad­di­tional pro­vided box macros are \lap­box, \margin­box, \min­size­box, \max­size­box and \phan­tombox.

All macros use the col­lect­box pack­age to read the con­tent as a box and not as a macro ar­gu­ment. This al­lows for all forms of con­tent in­clud­ing spe­cial ma­te­rial like ver­ba­tim con­tent. A spe­cial fea­ture of col­lect­box is used to pro­vide match­ing en­vi­ron­ments with the iden­ti­cal names as the macros.
