# Latex Forest decorate parts of the text

I'd like to have a diagram like in this answer:

The difference is, that the box shouldn't conatin all of the text, but parts of it. The text afterwards has to go undecorated.

I tried making the whole diagram plain and adding decoration manually, but it didn't compile.

I don't care about wich library is used to generate the tree.

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Could you give also a rough representation of what you need? – egreg Nov 21 '16 at 16:03
• Just imagine the coloured box of each node in the picture only contain the word "tex" and the "t1.1" being classic black on white. – piegames Nov 21 '16 at 16:38

It is virtually impossible to tell what you really want: you give no code and a description which doesn't make much sense. Apparently, you want to split words into a bit in a coloured box and a bit not in a coloured box, where the word being split is inexplicably always text. Oh, well.

Looks bizarre to me, but I suppose it takes all sorts, if not necessarily the liquorice kind.

• Thank you, that's exactly what I needed. I got the following errors while compiling: "Package pgfkeys Error: I do not know the key '/forest/package@options/edges' and I am going to ignore it. Perhaps you misspelled it. ...fPackageOptions{/forest/package@options}" "Package pgfkeys Error: I do not know the key '/tikz/split option', to which ys you misspelled it. \end{forest}" – piegames Nov 22 '16 at 8:24
• @piegames Your TeX installation is out of date and you have an old version of Forest. You need to update. – cfr Nov 22 '16 at 15:53
