Is there any way to use the typewriter package in a Ti*k*Z node? Or get a similar text effect by other means in the node?


% !TeX TS-program = lualatex

\documentclass{standalone}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{typewriter}

\begin{document}
Quack!

\begin{tikzpicture}
\node at (0,0) {Quack!};
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}

You can use font=\myfont.

\documentclass{standalone}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{typewriter}

\begin{document}
Quack!

\begin{tikzpicture}[font=\myfont]
\node at (0,0) {Quack!};
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}

You can save the typeset material inside a box register and use that box inside the Ti*k*Z node. That way you can circumvent the issue, though this doesn't really solve it.


% !TeX TS-program = lualatex

\documentclass{standalone}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{typewriter}

\newsavebox\mybox

\begin{document}
Quack!

\sbox\mybox{Quack!}

\begin{tikzpicture}
\node at (0,0) {\usebox\mybox};
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}
