Installation

To install the tkiz-page package copy its directory to either to:

  • $TEXHOME/tex/latex/
  • $TEXMFHOME/tex/latex/

Usage

A simple page:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz-page}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\newcommand{\tikzpagelayout}{
  \tpshowframes
  \tikzpageputanchors
}
\pagestyle{plain}
\begin{document}
\lipsum
\end{document}

A more complex document:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz-page}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\definecolor{halfgray}{gray}{0.55}
\newcommand\anglei{-45}
\newcommand\angleii{45}
\newcommand\angleiii{225}
\newcommand\angleiv{135}
\newcommand{\tikzpagelayout}{
  \tpflip{
    \coordinate (aux1) at ([yshift=-15pt]page.northeast);
    \coordinate (aux2) at ([yshift=-410pt]page.northeast);
    \coordinate (aux3) at ([xshift=-4.5cm]page.northeast);
    \coordinate (aux4) at ([yshift=-150pt]page.northeast);
  }{
    \coordinate (aux1) at ([yshift=-15pt]page.northwest);
    \coordinate (aux2) at ([yshift=-410pt]page.northwest);
    \coordinate (aux3) at ([xshift=4.5cm]page.northwest);
    \coordinate (aux4) at ([yshift=-150pt]page.northwest);
    \renewcommand\anglei{-135}
    \renewcommand\angleii{135}
    \renewcommand\angleiii{-45}
    \renewcommand\angleiv{45}
  }
  \begin{scope}[halfgray!40,line width=12pt,rounded corners=12pt]
    \draw (aux1) -- coordinate (a) ++(\angleiii:5) -- ++(\anglei:5.1) coordinate (b);
    \draw[shorten <= -10pt] (aux3) -- (a) -- (aux1);
    \draw[opacity=0.6,halfgray,shorten <= -10pt] (b) -- ++(\angleiii:2.2) -- ++(\anglei:2.2);
  \end{scope}
  \draw[halfgray,line width=8pt,rounded corners=8pt,shorten <= -10pt]
  (aux4) -- ++(\angleiii:0.8) -- ++(\anglei:0.8);
  \begin{scope}[halfgray!70,line width=6pt,rounded corners=8pt]
    \draw[shorten <= -10pt] (aux2) -- ++(\angleiii:3) coordinate[pos=0.45] (c) -- ++(\anglei:3.1);
    \draw (aux2) -- (c) -- ++(\angleiv:2.5) -- ++(\angleii:2.5) -- ++(\anglei:2.5) coordinate[pos=0.3] (d);   
    \draw (d) -- +(\angleii:1);
  \end{scope}
}
\pagestyle{plain}
\begin{document}
\lipsum
\end{document}
