I created a new environment that creates a box around text. I used tcolorbox. Additionally, since I wanted to break from page to page, I added 'breakable'. However, what I want it to do is to break the box from page to page, but also automatically write a message, for example, "theorem x cont.", anytime there are breaks in the page. I want to write this message inside the box. How can I do this?

Edit: Basically, I want to do this: Breaking a theorem between pages, but not using mdframed and inside my box which contains other text.

I want to do something like this: enter image description here The italicized text. Blue line represents page break.

My code thus far:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tcolorbox}
\tcbuselibrary{breakable}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\newenvironment{cframed}
  {\begin{tcolorbox}[breakable,colback=gray!6]}
  {\end{tcolorbox}}

\begin{document}

\begin{cframed}
\lipsum[1-10]
\end{cframed}
\end{document}
  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – ebosi Apr 8 '16 at 7:31

    The picture is a good hint. Yet a MWE is to follow: 1) to see your attempts and 2) to just have a starting point. Help your helpers! :) – Ruben Apr 8 '16 at 8:01

  • the title after breakcould help you : page 307 of the tcolorbox documentation – flav Apr 8 '16 at 8:51
  • @flav Is there a way to get the number. For example, thm 1 cont.? – user102690 Apr 8 '16 at 8:55

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{lipsum}


\newcounter{theoInt}
\newcommand\numtheo{\stepcounter{theoInt}\arabic{theoInt}}

\newenvironment{cframed}
  {\begin{tcolorbox}[breakable,%
      colback=gray!6,titlerule=0pt,
      title after break=\emph{Theorem \numtheo{} cont.},
      colbacktitle=white, coltitle=black]}
  {\end{tcolorbox}}

\begin{document}

\begin{cframed}
\lipsum[1-10]
\end{cframed}
\end{document}

  • Instead of X, I want it to show the number of the theorem – user102690 Apr 8 '16 at 8:56
  • Also, is there a way to get rid of that line under Theorem X cont.? – user102690 Apr 8 '16 at 8:59
  • you can use a counter – flav Apr 8 '16 at 9:10
  • What about getting rid of the line? – user102690 Apr 8 '16 at 9:13
  • set ,titlerule=0pt, – flav Apr 8 '16 at 9:16

  • Is there a way to get rid of that formatting for Theorem 1 (cont.)? – user102690 Apr 8 '16 at 9:05
  • @user102690, yes. I updated the answer. – Ruben Apr 8 '16 at 9:34
