Is it possible to tell arrows in TikZ to ease off a bit so as to not get within a thousandths of an inch of the target node? In my particular case I am using shadows which are interfering with the arrow heads (see image below):
Use the shorten option for those arrows.
\draw [help lines] (-1,-2) grid (4,2);
\draw [blue, ->] (0,1) -- (3,1);
\draw [->, shorten >=5mm] (0,0) -- (3,0);
\draw [red, shorten <=7.5mm, shorten >=10mm] (0,-1) -- (3,-1);
