How to draw a black arrow , please ?

I've tried using this $\Rightarrow$, but it wouldn't work properly.

Thanks a lot!

What kind of arrow do you need? Extensible, curved, straight? – Gonzalo Medina May 13 '14 at 21:50
An overview of some of the arrows available appears here: sascha-frank.com/Arrow/latex-arrows.html – cslstr May 13 '14 at 21:51
@GonzaloMedina, This one directed to the right. – Djouma May 13 '14 at 21:56
Or this. – Djouma May 13 '14 at 21:57
@Djouma just the arrow tip? (Your first link opens an arrow tip pointing upwards). – Gonzalo Medina May 13 '14 at 21:57

Three possibilities (there are many more; search the pgf manual for the arrows.meta library); adjust the settings according to your needs:



\tikz\draw[->,line width=8pt] (0,0) -- (3,0);

\tikz\draw[-Latex,line width=8pt] (0,0) -- (3,0);

\tikz\node at (2,0) [fill=black,shape=single arrow,text width=2cm,text height=2.5ex] {};
