I'm sorry I did not write MWE but I do not know how to do it in any way. I think it will be easy with pgf.

I just want to do the red parts. I am leading this problem to friends who can do this.

My try

\tikz[baseline=(foo.base)] \draw node [append after command={(foo)node [above right=-.1]  {$\sim$}},draw,ellipse,thick,fill=white,inner sep=1pt,] (foo){$\displaystyle#1$};}

  • @marmot, yes I know. Not a solution to the my problem. – Özgür Nov 23 '17 at 15:58

    Using an image editor (e.g. Gimp) will probably be easier. – Torbjørn T. Nov 23 '17 at 16:35

  • What's Turkish got to do with these marks? You can basically ask how to draw those squiggly lines right? – percusse Dec 4 '17 at 16:47

Here is a possible solution. You can adjust the delete mark however you see fit by adjusting the coordinates, thickness or looseness in the \draw command.

enter image description here

Here's the code:



    \settowidth{\wordlen}{#1}\hspace{.5\wordlen}\tikz[anchor=base,baseline, overlay]{%
    \node[inner sep=1,circle,very thick,draw=red](word){#1};%
    \draw[very thick,red,overlay](word)to[out=20,in=-90](.5,.4)to[out=90,in=90](.4,.4)to[out=-90,in=-150](.8,.4);}%

Here is a sentence with no meaningful content.
Here is another sentence with no meaningful content. 
Here is one more sentence with no \delete{no} meaningful content.

With percusse's help (see comments), the left mark is easy.


\node (A) {\includegraphics{hKBg1}};
\fill[white] ([shift={(1.5,0.5)}]A.south west) rectangle ([shift={(4,1.6)}]A.south west);

\draw[red,ultra thick]
([shift={(1.5,0.5)}]A.south west)
..controls +(90pt,65pt) and +(-95pt,-25pt) .. ++(60pt,25pt);

    I think the OP wants to draw the proofreader's marks on text, not cover them up in a picture... Consider his example syntax: \delete{it} should draw a red circle around it and then draw the delete proofreader's mark. – David Purton Nov 25 '17 at 6:22
  • Actually, maybe I misunderstand too, since he has already asked and received an answer here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/402937/… – David Purton Nov 25 '17 at 6:46
  • @DavidPurton, just like you wrote. – Özgür Dec 4 '17 at 15:41

    @Özgür Are you looking for something like this ? \tikz{ \draw[red, thick] (70pt,20pt) ..controls (250pt,150pt) and (0pt,20pt) .. (190pt,70pt);} – percusse Dec 4 '17 at 16:32
  • @percusse I think I should delete my answer because I compltetly misunderstood the question. Will your comment be affected by this deletion? Could Özgür still read it? – Ignasi Dec 4 '17 at 16:38
