Idea borrowed from Hendrik Vogt:


[Welcome to TeX.SE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1436).


It would be helpful if you composed a fully compilable [MWE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228) including `\documentclass` and the appropriate packages that sets up the problem.

While solving problems can be fun, setting them up is not. Then, those trying to help can simply cut and paste your MWE and get started on solving the problem.


It is always best to compose a fully compilable [MWE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228) that illustrates the problem including the `\documentclass` and the appropriate packages so that those trying to help don't have to recreate it.

This will also serve as a test case and ensure that the solution actually works for you.

That way those trying to help can focus on the solution as opposed to setting up the problem test case.


While code snippets are useful in explanations, it is always best to compose a fully compilable [MWE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228) that illustrates the problem including the `\documentclass` and the appropriate packages so that those trying to help don't have to recreate it.

This is especially important for `tikz` as there are numerous libraries.

In this case it will actually help to ensure that the solution actually solves your specific problem.

Personally, I have often solved my own problems in the process of reducing the amount of code actually required to reproduce the problem.


A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, then they're marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (`{}`).

I took the liberty to format your post a little. See [this link for more details on available formatting](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/editing-help).


Saying it "does not work" does not provide any useful information with which anyone can provide you with any help. I'd suggest you post a new question and include a fully compilable [MWE](http://meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228) including `\documentclass` and the appropriate packages that sets up the problem. If your case does not even compile, then ensure that it compiles if that one line is commented. While solving problems can be fun, setting them up is not. Then, those trying to help can simply cut and paste your MWE and get started on solving the problem.

comment tikz node graph
It would be helpful if you converted your code snippet into a fully compilable MWE including \documentclass and the appropriate packages that reproduced the problem. While solving problems can be fun, setting them up is not. Then, those trying to help can simply cut and paste your MWE and get started on solving the problem. As far as blue line, just add the [draw=blue] option to any \draw.

Welcome to TeX.SE. Reiterating @Werner's suggestion: while code snippets are useful in explanations, it is always best to compose a fully compilable MWE that illustrates the problem including the \documentclass and the appropriate packages so that those trying to help don't have to recreate it.

Yeah, I always forget about the \def thing to stop things from happening again. Can you elaborate on the \expandafter{\romannumeral#2000} magic that is happening here. How does that become m m if #2=2?

comment Adjust parameters of resumed lists
@cfr No need to delete it. It does work for the MWE as posted and I might end up adapting that if a solution that provides a new key such as Resume doesn't show up.

comment Adjust parameters of resumed lists
@cfr: I guess that is one of the problems with a MWE in that the actual context gets lost. The reason I need this is that items are conditional so may not get typeset, and it is possible that the entire list is not typeset at all. This simplest way to do that seemed to me to use the resume feature. I removed that portion of the MWE as it did not seem to be needed.

comment Detect actual start of text
Well, yeah it is in the MWE, but in my actual use there are several layers of conditions, and of course the tikzmarks could also be added to those conditions as well, but I'd prefer to keep the logic in \MarkThisText if at all possible. Perhaps using \everypar to set a flag and then something like \AtBeginEnvironment{align}{if{NoParYet}{\tikzmark{Top}}}... Just thought of this now...

comment Detect actual start of text
Yes that will work for the MWE provided, but due to there also being conditional text within the block, I don't know upfront if the environments which have surrounding space are at the beginning or end of the text to be marked.

comment Adjust parameters of resumed lists
@Werner: Or perhaps defining a new key Resume instead so that other resumes are not affected. Don't think I need that, but just in case.

comment Adjust parameters of resumed lists
@cmhughes: Yep. But a new list will be proceeded by text so that is ok. So, I guess I could set something like itemsep=\dimexpr\topsep+\parskip (not quite right), but I'd prefer to leave the new list spacing as is, just tweak the resumed list spacing to match.

comment Adjust parameters of resumed lists
@Werner: Indeed, that works if I place them in every resumed list (but not the initial list). Now, can I apply that when I apply a resume?
