I've been having some problems with tikz figures. When I define a new
tikz figure, I normally put it in a buffer:


which I use later when I place the figure

\placefigure{My picture}{\getbuffer[mypic]}

The problem is that the figure is not centred: it is always aligned with
the left side of the document. I guess this has something to do with
Context not being able to get the image bounds, since it works fine for
tikz images that are already precompiled into PDFs:

\placefigure{My picture}{\externalimage[mypic.pdf]}

Minimal example is attached.


You have to wrap up the picture inside of a \hbox, e.g.
