# Draw multiple tikz pictures in line

I want to draw a few pictures in line using tikz. I added a few pictures for your understanding. The first pictures is fine, but in the second is some kind of line break which I don't want.

The code I'm using is:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage[active,tightpage]{preview}
\setlength\PreviewBorder{5pt}

\begin{document}
\begin{preview}

\begin{tikzpicture}[font=\sffamily]
% draw 1
\end{tikzpicture}
\hspace*{10pt}
\begin{tikzpicture}[font=\sffamily]
% draw 2
\end{tikzpicture}
\hspace*{10pt}
\begin{tikzpicture}[font=\sffamily]
% draw 3
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{preview}

\end{document}


Do you have any ideas how to draw these pictures in line?

Hi, welcome to TeX.SX. I included the images for you. Once you got 10rep points you can do this by yourself. – Martin Scharrer Mar 18 '11 at 21:54
Note that you can write such files even shorter using the standalone class: \documentclass[border=5pt]{standalone} \usepackage{tikz} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture} ... \end{tikzpicture} \end{document} You can then include them directly into a main file with the standalone package. – Martin Scharrer Mar 18 '11 at 21:56
Didn't know that, thank you. – Maaalte Mar 18 '11 at 22:01

Does it help to add % after \end{tikzpicture} and after \hspace*{10pt}? This should disable the white space caused by end-of-line tokens.
You can use backticks (`) to mark your inline code. – Caramdir Mar 18 '11 at 22:57
