I use tcolorbox in arabic document with polyglossia for theorems examples, and so. I put the titles of environments in tikz boxes what I put in the margin (in the right margin, the arabic is written in Right to Left mode) I want (essentially for "small" examples but for others too...) to obtain good alignments of the boxes and for the nodes. Say a box and a node of the same height. I do it by hand, because I don't understand how tcolorbox decide where to put exactly the node... I give an ECM..

The tex file

    \documentclass[14pt]{extbook}%

    \usepackage[most]{tcolorbox}

    \usepackage{array}

     \tikzstyle{titlenode} =
     [draw=blue, thick, scale=.7, fill=red,% 
    line width=1pt, text=black, rectangle,
    font=\Large,
    left, minimum height=1cm]

    \newcounter{example}

    \newtcolorbox[auto counter,
        number within=section,
        number freestyle={\noexpand\arabic{section}\noexpand\alph{\tcbcounter}}]{example}[1][]{%

    A first example
    \end{example} 

    \vspace*{1cm}
    \begin{example}
    A first example. Aligned bottom
    \vspace*{.57cm}
    \end{example} 


    \begin{texample}{Titled example}
    By the same, I want that the title node rectangle will be exactly aligned with the box of title.
    \end{texample} 


    \end{document}

and its compilation with xelatex

enter image description here

I want that the title node rectangle will be exactly superposed on the borderline north (in yellow). One can see in the example 1a that the box is too small, and I want to arrange it in the bottom too, so that the borderline south will be exactly superposed under the title box. I arrange it by hand in the example 1b, in the text of the box by the command \vspace*{.57cm}. I want to do this automatically, i.e. to obtain box and node with the same height. How can I do this ?

By the same, I want to obtain good alignments of the title node rectangle and the box of the title. Many thanks

Edit For fixed height I am not sure but you can try this

% this

  • It seems very helpful....and beautiful as the arabic language. I'll test it and keep you inform about in the final form. Many thanks Commented May 8, 2015 at 22:03
  • One thing. if I have a long example.. some thing like \begin{example}[اللغة العربية] \testarab testarab testarab \end{example}... the height will be too great and wil not be good for a title... How can I obtain a node of fixed height in this case ...some thing like 2cm for example.. ? Commented May 8, 2015 at 22:41
