In my document preamble, I have:


In the body, I have a tcolorbox called thus:

\begin{tcolorbox}[breakable, enhanced jigsaw,opacityback=0,rounded corners, parbox=false]

This is a very large box running into multiple pages. With the current settings, the box continues on the next page but does not close on each page.

How do I get the box to close on each page?

    Please help us (and also you) and add a minimal working example (MWE), that illustrates your problem. – Bobyandbob Nov 8 '17 at 15:43
  • Have you checked the tcolorbox manual about partial boxes? It is very helpful in explaining those concepts. – TeXnician Nov 8 '17 at 16:25
  • As far as I know, neither enhanced nor enhanced jigsaw allow for bottom or or top rules for the middle boxes and for bottomrule on the first, or top rule on the first box. – user31729 Nov 8 '17 at 17:15

You can hide the original frame (frame hidden) and draw an overlay-ed frame according your taste:

    frame hidden,
    overlay broken = {
        \draw[line width=1mm, red, rounded corners]
        (frame.north west) rectangle (frame.south east);},

enter image description here

  • Oh damn, you beat me by some minutes :-( ... (+1)... I wonder, why this is not incorporated already as possible option for broken boxes in tcolorbox – user31729 Nov 8 '17 at 17:49
  • @ChristianHupfer Did you think the same solution? About including as a possible option, we can always fill a suggestion in tcolorbox development site. – Ignasi Nov 8 '17 at 18:03
  • It was basically the same solution, apart from the red color of the frame ;-) Thanks for suggesting the link to the github site – user31729 Nov 8 '17 at 18:53
