My last "answer" is here, but it was unfairly converted to a comment :-D.

I have problem to be neither asked nor answered.

enter image description here

\def\xport{%
    \rm X%
    \kern-.17em\lower.7ex\hbox{P}%
    \kern-.20em\lower.2ex\hbox{O}%
    \kern-.50em\lower-1.0ex\hbox{R}%
    \kern-.07em\lower-.09ex\hbox{T}%
}
\xport

Notes

  1. preview package
    • ignores \pagecolor{} and paper size.
    • needs -D10000 option to get a tight output.
    • cannot work with animate package.
  2. standalone class uses preview package internally so it does the same behaviour.

I must use latex -> dvips - ps2pdf because of PSTricks.

comment Without using minipage, can we resize both input and output boxes of LTXexample?
So using explpreset is not a necessity, because I have tried without using it & still works. Thank you.

latex ->dvips -> ps2pdf cannot be used to compile the document above.

why do you enclose linewidth=0.5\linewidth by explpreset? without doing that, it still works. I don't know the purpose.

itemize will cause the bullet cross beyond the left margin. See my answer (not really answer actually, just a comparison) :-)

Thanks Hendrik. I need pdf output only. So TikZ is more appropriate for me?

@Thanks Stefan. I am also reading the TikZ manual now for the details. I think Tikz has better structured and syntax than PSTricks. :-)
