This is the README file of the placeat pack­age. The pack­age pro­vides sev­eral com­mands to place con­tent at an ar­bi­trary po­si­tion of the cur­rent page in any doc­u­ment. For ori­en­ta­tion, a grid is drawn. Sim­ple graph­i­cal el­e­ments like ar­rows and cir­cles can eas­ily be drawn and po­si­tioned.

To pro­duce the pack­age files, run lu­ala­tex on placeat.dtx, wich should re­sult in the cre­ation of the fol­low­ing files: placeat.pdf (doc­u­men­ta­tion) placeat.sty ( user in­ter­face) placeat.lua (Lua pack­age code)

You need an up-to-date Live (2017 at best) and com­pi­la­tion with Lua to use this pack­age. A full, up­dated MiK should also work. (Not tested.)
