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).

Very nice. I cited your answer here: tex.stackexchange.com/a/218193/13552

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.

comment How can I add more coordinates to standard TikZ shapes?
In other words, could I apply your code to a segment? Given segment A-B, add an arbitrary number (likely 100) of coordinates to that segment (a line).

comment How can I add more coordinates to standard TikZ shapes?
How would you recommend doing exactly that but for a single side..say from {1,2,..100} on a side, so that I can connect to any shape's side in the same position regardless of size (as shape size increases, the perimeter units loose their resolution--effectively moving anchor points around the shape in a counter-clockwise direction). I had considered making a path using the predefined anchor points of the shape in question. Do you have any ideas?

I think you are right. Why does the answer need to be so difficult… ughh :(
