I want to do tags like the ones used in blogs (like the tags in the picture shown below). Any ideas how I can do them ?

  • It is not clear what you are asking. Please, show us your code. Do you want to create a button style?

  • I'm sorry, but are you trying to more-or-less duplicate the image shown here? May 2, 2014 at 21:38

  • The most simple way to insert boxes is \fbox{}. But it works fine with short texts.

I ended up using

  boxsep=0pt,left=3pt,right=3pt,top=4pt,bottom=4pt,tcbox raise base}

  • This is nice, but tags with risers (like h) and no hangers (like j) don't align vertically with tags with both, or just hangers. Shame...
