AdjustmentBox

FilledSmallSquare AdjustmentBox[box, opts] displays with the placement of box adjusted using the options given.

FilledSmallSquare In the notebook front end, AdjustmentBox objects can typically be inserted and modified using ControlKeyLeftModifiedRightModified, ControlKeyLeftModifiedRightModified, ControlKeyLeftModifiedRightModified and ControlKeyLeftModifiedRightModified. These keys move your current selection by one pixel at the current screen magnification.

FilledSmallSquare The following options can be given:

FilledSmallSquare Horizontal motion specifications are in ems; vertical ones in x-heights.

FilledSmallSquare Motion specifications can be either positive or negative numbers.

FilledSmallSquare Positive margin specifications increase the spacing around box; negative ones decrease it.

FilledSmallSquare Moving the baseline affects for example vertical alignment in a RowBox.

FilledSmallSquare Top and bottom margins affect for example placement in a FractionBox or an OverscriptBox.

FilledSmallSquare In StandardForm and InputForm input, AdjustmentBox is by default ignored, so that AdjustmentBox[box, opts] is interpreted just as box would be.

FilledSmallSquare Inserting an explicit spacing character such as \[ThinSpace] can have the same effect for display as AdjustmentBox, but the spacing character by default affects interpretation.

FilledSmallSquare AdjustmentBox[box, opts] uses the options given only to adjust the position of box itself. Unlike StyleBox, it does not propagate the options to subboxes.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 2.9.11.
