  • Do you need the digit 1 in the current font? – Ian Thompson Apr 18 '14 at 17:00

    using tikz: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz} \begin{document} \tikz \node[scale=4,shape=circle,draw]{1}; \end{document} – cmhughes Apr 18 '14 at 17:13
  • it is working :) write it in an answer with more details on tikz (what is this package) – user39755 Apr 18 '14 at 17:17
  • can you make it with \begin{tikzpicture} \end{tikzpicture} – user39755 Apr 18 '14 at 17:19

With pstricks and pst-node, you can circle about whatever you want with the circlenode command. Note that you have to give a name (first argument of the command) even if you don't want to use it. It can be compiled withpdflatexif you load pstricks xith the pdf option and compile with the--shell-escape(TeX Live) or--enable-write18` (MiKTeX) switch :

\documentclass[12pt, a4paper]{article}

\usepackage[pdf, x11names]{pstricks}%pdf,  


Blahblahblah… \raisebox{-0.4\height}{ \circlenode[linewidth=2.5pt, linecolor = PaleVioletRed3]%
{A}{\color{PaleVioletRed3}\Huge\bfseries \sffamily 12a}}
