comment Position text next to rectangle in TikZ
Is it possible that the size of the rectangle I specify be exact/fixed/absolute, rather than "minimum"? If the text in {} is too long, the rectangle is enlarged. I need all the rectangles to be exact/fixed/absolute sizes, to scale, so I don't want them to ever grow in size. I'd rather see the text overflow and then change the text to something shorter.

I've added a note to my question with an example illustrating what I mean about the positioning.

comment Position text next to rectangle in TikZ
Thanks for the answer. I need to produce several such rectangles (above each other vertically, but at different starting x positions and of different x sizes) all to scale and positioned according to the x value. Your solution places the rectangle at a different x position to mine, so I'm figuring that out first. I think in your example, the labels are counting towards the width and/or the positioning of the entire structure.

The bar is not placed correctly when multiple paragraphs and/or page-breaks are involved.

Duplicate of tex.stackexchange.com/questions/33316/…, but the accepted answer here is better IMO as it does not require \vspace.

Thanks. I used \nocite{myPaperA}, \nocite{myPaperB} because \nocite{*} would include all the other references in the file.

comment How to enter publications “in press”, or “submitted to” in BibTeX?
In my version [BibTeX 0.99c (TeX Live 2009/Debian)], this works if I use the type @article and the field name note, rather than notes.

comment BibTeX entry for author with only one name
@egreg: I made my own one years ago. If I add the author as Singleton, {}, the output is Singleton, . which is not what I want. Do I need to run makebst again?
