public class Raise
extends AbstractBoxPrimitive

This class provides an implementation for the primitive \raise.

The Primitive \raise

The primitive \raise takes a box and a length and shifts up the amount specified by the length. If the length is negative then the shift is done downwards.

The primitive \lower is the counterpart to \lower.

Syntax

The formal description of this primitive is the following:
    ⟨raise⟩
      → \raise ⟨dimen⟩ ⟨box⟩  

Examples

    \raise 2em \hbox{abc}  
    \raise -1pt \hbox to 120pt {abc}  
    \raise 2mm \hbox spread 12pt {abc}
