comment Positioning of a (newly defined) symbol *relative* to a textbox
.. yes. I just experimented a bit and it turns out that when I choose the scale any smaller than 1, the chevrons disappear and for scale >= 1, they appear (but are huge of course).

comment Positioning of a (newly defined) symbol *relative* to a textbox
Hi, thanks for helping. I like the idea with the arguments, but I would only need one (not two). I substituted the color into #1 and made the #2 a #1 (and of course removed the {blue} and replaced {2} by {1}), but suddenly the chevrons disappear. Do you know why?

comment latexmk vs texi2dvi?
Just to mention some points: If there is an error in the document and texi2dvi fails (leaving a folder .t2d), then compilation with texi2dvi after fixing the error still fails. One first has to remove the .t2d folder and then it would work. This is not necessary with latexmk. Also, latexmk does not face the problem of running forever (see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/173077/…): On the other hand, latexmk is significantly slower than texi2dvi (in an example document: 17s vs 10s).

comment latexmk vs texi2dvi?
Thanks for helping. I am aware of these 'basic facts', alternatives or pages like tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=make. My hope was to hear more about the technical differences. I'll give it more time so that more people can respond.
