Is it possible to draw a box shown in this image which reduces the right margin of a paragraph it displays along side and adjusts its own height to the height of the paragraph?

Something like this perhaps?


... paragraph here ...


Here is what I am trying to reproduce... enter image description here

  • Such a box can be drawn with TikZ and included with wrapfig into text (if I correctly understand the question and given figure) or be put into margin of text. To be more specific, you need provide a code which tried so far, as already suggest Kurt.

  • That box hasn't adjusted its height to the paragraph height. Also, do you really want to reproduce that? It can be quite hard to make TeX produce output which is really ugly, although philosophy.sty is not a bad start.

  • You mean sort of like this? If so, I think this question is largely a duplicate.

Based on the feedback above, what I wanted to do can be accomplished using something similar this...

                 title={\hfill Important},
                 after title={\hfill\colorbox{red}{NB!}},
                 opacitytext=1, opacityframe=0.75, opacitybacktitle=0.75,
                 enhanced, drop fuzzy shadow=black
