I am the author of TeX Tutorials on Youtube.

I am a linguist, lecturer and documentation specialist.

I use

  • Xelatex because of the unicode support.
  • OS X
  • Linux Mint

I am a supporter of up-votes for good questions (not just good answers).

My favorite package is tikz (and tikz-qtree).

comment Why is the TikZ Spy coordinate system different than for the rectangle's?
According to Paul Gaborit, the scope for spy is different than the one I explicitly specified with the \begin{scope} environment. I would like to have the spy glass respect my scope from image.south east to image.north west. This enables me to use percentage coordinates for drawing on the image. I can do this with the rectangle shape, but not with the spy glass. Why would I do this? I can then scale the image later without worrying about my nodes becoming misaligned.

@PaulGaborit That is great that you identified the problem. I would like to find a way to give the spy glass the same scope as the image.

comment How can I put a minipage that fits to the actual line width inside of a TikZ Node?
One more question since you obviously know what you're doing...is the 20pt subtraction from line width due to the innersep=10pt, which of course applies to the padding on both horizontal sides of the node?

+1 Thanks, I knew it had something to do with the \pgflinewidth!

The width should be the text width of the node. If the text width is set to \linewidth, shouldn't I be able to use \begin{minipage}{\linewidth}?

You're right Harish. My mistake. But if an explicit minipage is possible, I would also like to know how that is possible. Thanks!

mdframed and tcolorbox are great! I would like to know how to do this on my own nonetheless. I can control every detail this way.

No, not like that. I asked for a minipage inside of TikZ node.
