Hi I'm making a chart using tcolorbox. I'll show you my code:

\begin{center}
\begin{tcolorbox}[halign= flush center, halign title= flush center, fonttitle=\sffamily\bfseries\large, title={Lecteur DVD LG=Modèle GSA-H10N}, width=9cm]

\end{tcolorbox}
\end{center}
\tcbset{on line,before upper=\strut,width=10cm}

\vspace{10px} %%%%%%%%% Adding space %%%%%%%%%
\begin{minipage}{.45\linewidth}

Which gives me something like this: enter image description here

You can see from the code that the boxes on the left are defined using '\newtcolorbox'. But the thing is I am adding arrows, using the remember as option. Problem is 'remember as' is defined in the '\netcolorbox' command, so all my boxes on the left are remembered as 'first'. How can I give a different remember as to each box on the left in the \begin{mybox} command?

It worked for the first too, but the Third one is not working properly (when I draw from first to second, then first to third, and so on).

  • Please add your preamble. Your code shows a lot of errors from unknown options and commands. – Alenanno Feb 5 '16 at 17:07
  • Also, your code does not give your image as a result, there's a lot of underfull and overfull hboxes. – Alenanno Feb 5 '16 at 17:14
  • Well there's three pages of boxes, I just screenshot the beginning cause it's essentially the same. I'll add the preamble with all the packages i'm using – Dorian Kartalovski Feb 5 '16 at 17:22

Some notes:

  • I ignored the warnings when possible because your document has a lot, especially underfull \hbox and overfull \hbox. The first one means that you have maybe inserted a line break where the line had no content, such as writing \\\\, the second one means that your content exceeds the page margins.
  • I removed most of the content from your example because one page was enough to show my solution.
  • The option draft in article is there because I don't have your image files, remove the option to restore the images. Or ignore the preamble altogether.

And now the solution. Since you set a new tcolorbox called mybox, I assigned a dynamic name to it, using remember as=a\thetcbcounter, So that you have a1, a2, a3 and so on. Then for each of the other side, I assigned b1, b2, b3 and so on, manually.

Finally, you only need one tikzpicture to draw all the arrows, using one for each row is tedious and unnecessary. Like this:

\begin{tikzpicture}[overlay,remember picture,->, line width=0.8mm,draw=red!75!black]
    \foreach \x in {1,2,3}{%
        \draw (a\x.east) -- (b\x.west);
    }    
\end{tikzpicture}

I think it's fairly understandable, but feel free to comment if you need assistance. It says 1,2,3 because I used 3 "rows", but for each row, you need to increase it by one. If you have, say, 8, you can write 1,...,8.

  • Yep it's working, for the underfull, I used \\\\ for the Time, cause I didn't how it was too cramped. For the overfull yeah I think it's the number that's outside the margin, but I will try to move the left boxes in the margin area. Thanks – Dorian Kartalovski Feb 5 '16 at 17:37
  • @DorianKartalovski The black vertical lines you see in my output are the elements exceeding the margin, visible thanks to the draft option. – Alenanno Feb 5 '16 at 17:39
  • mm ok, not sure why then, but how can I solve this? – Dorian Kartalovski Feb 5 '16 at 17:40
  • @DorianKartalovski Make them smaller :P for example, \includegraphics could be made smaller. – Alenanno Feb 5 '16 at 17:57
