comment Align an equation and a tikz picture with anchor and baseline
Thanks zeroth, while (Martin's) centering around the box itself seems more robust - I really appreciate the tikz style tips.

Why the yshift (and how will I know what the proper shift is ahead of time, trial and error)?

@TomBombadil In the MWE example above, that produces no effect. Is the problem related to the fact that I'm wrapped up in an equation?

comment Coloring a black and white PDF graphic
Very nice! Does this require the fadings tikz library? If not, is there a more minimal working example (MMWE?) that simply changes (for ex.) from black to red? I really like this example, I just want to make sure I understand how TikZ knows where the shape begins and ends. Is it in the scope fading?

This is incredibly helpful in my understand of what goes on behind the scenes. Thank you! How did you determine from the PDF the rectangle coordinates?

@Jake I also get the same result if I open up the pdf with gimp. The higher the pixels per inches (resolution) the smaller the effect, but it's still there.

@Jake I'm using evince on a stock Ubuntu setup. I can't just put a solid background behind the rectangle since I like this to generalize to multiple (4) colors at each border.
