Hi all I've had a go at creating a module. Even though I don't know what I'm doing, I seem to have got something that nearly works. The purpose of the module is to create a GUI way of applying grey boxes around text (making use of the framed pacakge). Two question: First, is it possible to

Shaded wrapable text boxes?

2009-11-13 Thread killermike
Hi guys What is the current thinking on the best way to create a shaded text box that the main body text will wrap around? I'm trying to create something similar to the tip boxes that you see in some books. Preferably I'd like the boxes to automatically break if they hit the end of the page.
