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.

thanks. Could you help me to describe how to parse your macro step by step? I don't know how this macro works. What is the \number, \relax, etc for?

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.

@Matthew, the current mapping has no inverse. :D Thank you. Closed.
