Using the auto-generated codes by LaTeXdraw, I put a text box with the following code in PSTricks:

\rput(9, -1){\psframebox[linewidth=0.04,fillstyle=solid]{Text Goes Here}}

I guess the coordinate (9,-1) corresponds to the center of the text box. Can I assign the coordinate for the left-top corner of the text box? I wanted to put several text boxes vertically and arrange them with the left sides of the boxes aligned.

  • Are you working in centimeter for all settings like linewidth=0.04? In my personal opinion, linewidth is usually set in pt rather than in cm. Jul 21, 2011 at 22:22
  • @xport Thanks for the suggestion. I used LaTeXdraw and it created the codes with cm.
