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

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.

Thank Philipp, your code scares me. I am not familiar with plain tex. I don't know how to plug it into my problem.

Thank again Yiannis. Well done. But \thescale before \makeatother must be removed.

@Ulrike, thanks for your answer. Is there a better way to make a page break for the exercise instead of put \pagebreak manually?

@Matthew, but it looks so funny---Theoritically each color has a specific wavelength, so its name should be unique regardless of the capitalization I think :D

thank you first. Have you tried your code by yourself first? :D I have done it, but failed. :D I want to run MS Visual Studio to open C# exercise file accompanying my tutorial article in pdf.

comment Caption of figure in marginpar and caption of wrapfigure in margin
your solution is good but there is a possibility a page contains 3 figures and a fraction of the last figure at the bottom crossing the page boundry. This frequently happens when a paragraph is not so long enough. I replaced your 2 paragraph lipsum call with a single paragraph lipsum call, the issue came out.

@Will, thank you very much. The package author did it intentionally, the colors depend on the letter case? :D
