Textpos: absolute positioning of text on the LaTeX page ======================================================= Version 1.10.1, 2022 July 23 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. Textpos has a canonical home page at <https://purl.org/nxg/dist/textpos>. The CTAN URL for Textpos is <https://ctan.org/pkg/textpos>. The source is hosted [online](https://heptapod.host/nxg/textpos). For the change history, see textpos.html. Installation ------------ Download or find the file `textpos.sty`. Install `textpos.sty` somewhere LaTeX will find it (see [the TeX FAQ](https://texfaq.org/FAQ-inst-wlcf)). This package requires the services of Martin Schroeder's package [everyshi][everyshi]. You will need to download this package from CTAN first. Licence ------- This software is copyright, 1999-2020, Norman Gray.
