In my example below, I have a problem with my breakable box, he does not want to ride.

  • You are trying to define breakable boxes inside other breakable boxes, and as CarLaTeX explained in your previous question this is not a good idea. – Ignasi Jun 3 at 15:45
  • when I use unbreakable box inside breakable box it does not work. I do not know what to do. – moumou Jun 3 at 16:23
  • it works. But when second box is too long for the remaining space, it jumps to second page and leaves an empty background box on first page. – Ignasi Jun 3 at 16:51
  • Exactly, what is the solution then. My be changing outer box by tikz box. – moumou Jun 3 at 17:25
  • As I also suggested here, you could try with the solution provided in [various defined breakable boxes inside breakable box using overlapping ](tex.stackexchange.com/questions/426981/…). This answer proposes to declare three different environments for inner boxes (exercises and solutions in your case). These environments already draw a false external box. This way you only have to fight with one level of breakable boxes. – Ignasi Jun 3 at 17:43
