comment Transparent background for mdframed environment?
Yes, my apologies, you are right, I should have provided an example, but I had no idea how to achieve the effect. I very much appreciate your efforts to help.

comment Transparent background for mdframed environment?
Thanks, but that doesn't give me what I want. If this box overlays any other text, I want to be able to see it. eg. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz} \usepackage[framemethod=tikz]{mdframed} \usepackage{lipsum} \newmdenv[tikzsetting={draw=blue,fill=red,fill opacity=0.5}]{myenvironment} \begin{document} \vtop to 0pt{\LARGE Some text underneath} \begin{myenvironment} \lipsum[1] \end{myenvironment} \end{document}

I only want the background to be transparent, not the borders or text. Is this possible using 'tikzset' ?

Thank you. Is it my use of @tempboxa which causes it to fail?

If I was not worried about the overlap on the right how could I create a macro which used this \makebox idea so I could do: {a}\somespecialrotate[origin=c]{\anyangle}{b} I can't see why my attempt below does NOT work:

If it can be done simply with the graphicx package, that would be good.

comment How to put round cornered frame around an image
@Marco: this is a very elegant solution, but it runs much slower than the PsTricks solution provided by Herbert. Thank you very much for your help.

@Herbert: Yes, installing MikTeX 2.9 fixed the problem. Your solution is much faster than the TikZ solution by Marco, and easier to understand, thank you for your help.

@Herbert: that looks great, but when I run it I get the following error (any idea why?): ** WARNING ** Error while parsing PDF file. ** WARNING ** Failed to parse the clipping path. ** WARNING ** Interpreting special command PST: (ps:) failed. ** WARNING ** >> at page="1" position="(152.033, 609.492)" (in PDF) ** WARNING ** >> xxx "PST: tx@Dict begin /mtrxc CM def CP CP T STV newpath /ArrowA {"

comment How to put round cornered frame around an image
as the radius increases (say framearc=0.7), then the image edges protrude outside the borders: i.stack.imgur.com/FSaRV.png. Is there a way of clipping it?

is it possible to mark 2 answers? It looks like Herbert's answer is also correct, as well as yours.

This works beautifully (I think)...now I have to study it to find out how it works! :-)

thanks, but if in your solution you change to "framesep=0pt" then you get the same problem. I do not want another border inside the outer frame.
