 AdjustmentBoxis a low-level box construct which displays with the placement of box adjusted using the options given.
• In the notebook front end, AdjustmentBox objects can typically be inserted and modified using Alt+, Alt+, Alt+, and Alt+ (Ctrl on Macintosh). These keys move your current selection by one pixel at the current screen magnification.
• The following options can be given:
 BoxMargins {{left,right},{bottom,top}} margins to leave around the contents of the box BoxBaselineShift up how much the baseline should be shifted relative to those of neighboring boxes
• Horizontal motion specifications are in ems; vertical ones are in -heights.
• Motion specifications can be either positive or negative numbers.
• Positive margin specifications increase the spacing around box; negative ones decrease it.
• Moving the baseline affects, for example, vertical alignment in a RowBox.
• 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.
• AdjustmentBox uses the options given only to adjust the position of box itself. Unlike StyleBox, it does not propagate the options to sub-boxes.
