gentombow

This bundle provides a package for generating Japanese-style crop marks (called 'tombow' in Japanese) for practical use in self-publishing. The core feature of "gentombow.sty" is based on p kernel.

Supported engines

All packages except bounddvi.sty works with the followings:

  • + dvips/dvipdfmx
  • p/up + dvips/dvipdfmx
  • pdf
  • Lua
  • XeLaTeX

Bundle contents

  • gentombow.sty: Generate crop marks (called 'tombow' in Japanese) for practical use in self-publishing. It provides the core 'tombow' feature if not available.
  • pxgentombow.sty: (Superseded by gentombow.sty; for compatibility only.)
  • bounddvi.sty: Set papersize special to DVI file. Can be used on /p/up (with DVI output mode) with dvips or dvipdfmx drivers. Old version (v6.0) was written by Koichi INOU in 2004 (https://www.ma.ns.tcu.ac.jp/Pages//bounddvi.sty.html), and incorporated into this bundle by his courtesy.

Miscellaneous patches

Some packages are unaware of crop marks defined in "gentombow"; to cope with those packages, patches are provided here.

  • pxtextpos.sty: Patch for textpos.sty (by Norman Gray).
  • pxesopic.sty: Patch for eso-pic.sty (by Rolf Niepraschk).
  • pxpdfpages.sty: Patch for pdfpages.sty (by Andreas Matthias).

These patches can also be used independent of "gentombow", to avoid problems with crop marks on p and up.

Character encoding

All the package files (.sty) contain ASCII characters only. All the document files (.tex) are encoded in UTF-8.

Installation

  • .sty -> $TEXMF/tex/latex/gentombow
