\makebox

\makebox(width,height)[position]{...}

The \makebox command for the picture environment is similar to the normal \makebox command except that you must specify a width and height in multiples of \unitlength.

The optional argument, [position], specifies the quadrant that your text appears in. You may select up to two of the following:

  • t Moves the item to the top of the rectangle
  • b Moves the item to the bottom
  • l Moves the item to the left
  • r Moves the item to the right
