xsavebox – Saveboxes for repeating content without code replication, based on PDF Form XObjects

The pack­age de­fines com­mands for sav­ing con­tent that can be re­peat­edly placed into the doc­u­ment with­out repli­cat­ing DVI/PDF code in the out­put file, al­low­ing for smaller file size of the fi­nal PDF and im­proved con­tent caching for faster dis­play in cer­tain PDF view­ers. The method makes use of ‘Form XOb­jects’ de­fined in the PDF spec­i­fi­ca­tion.

The user com­mands are mod­elled af­ter the stan­dard com­mands \save­box, \sbox, \use­box and the lr­box en­vi­ron­ment.

All com­mon en­gines and back-ends are sup­ported:

  • pdf, Lua
  • → dvips → ps2pdf/Dis­tiller
  • (Xe) → (x)dvipdfmx
