# New paragraph style

I want to create a few new paragraph styles for a user manual I am writing. The trick part is I want to add an Icon to the beging of the line. I want to create three styles;

• Danger
• Warning
• Important

each is differnt in terms of color and have different icons. I want it to be more like a textbox with a boarder around it. keeping in mind that each instance will be no more than 2 lines at very most. e.g.

Warning; Risk of Electric Shock

• the bclogo package should do this; it even includes the relevant icons – prettygully May 12 '11 at 4:56
• I support @prettygully's comment, the bclogo package is pretty good at doing this. – Paulo Cereda May 12 '11 at 10:54
• Thanks, The bclogo package seems to be exactly what i want. only problem is i am having a bit of trouble understanding the french documentation. dose anyone know how to add a new icon? – Stephen May 12 '11 at 22:58

You can define new icons for bclogo just following the pattern shown on page 18 of the documentation:

\newcommand{\warninglogo}{\includegraphics[width=\logowidth]{warning.png}}


assuming that your logo is in warning.png; \logowidth is a length parameter that defaults to 17pt and can be changed by \setlength{\logowidth}{<length>}.

You can then use

\begin{bclogo}[<other settings>,logo=\warninglogo]{Title}
text
\end{bclogo}
