I want to insert a figure as a item of tcbitemize enviroment in tcolorbox. The following code does work:


usage example: \ff[colback=red]{myfigure.jpg}

But, the figure document name has to be enclosed in a pair of braces. Is there a better way to use \ff like this:

\ff[colback=red] myfigure.jpg

MWE below:




  \tcbitem some text
  \ff[colback=red] myfigure.jpg % directly document name without braces
  \tcbitem some text
  \tcbitem some text  

  • arguments should be in braces in latex. Trying to avoid this will only lead to confusing code. Don't do it. Oct 27, 2018 at 11:00
  • The argument of \tcbitem, or the content of \tecbitem need not braces. So I'd like to add figures as the argument of \tcbitem without braces. Is it possible?

  • \tcbitem does internally \end{tcolorbox}\begin{tcolorbox}, it doesn't grab the following text as argument. And yes it is possible. But don't do it. Oct 27, 2018 at 12:48
  • Can you show me an example?

  • You could start with the code in the answers here tex.stackexchange.com/questions/150909/…. And no, I won't adapt the code for you. Imho your idea is not sensible. If you want to do it, you will have to figure it out without my help. Oct 27, 2018 at 14:58
