What is the correct way to cause a \tikzpicture to be centered? By default it appears to be aligned with the left margin.

I preffer to put \makeatletter \g@addto@macro\@floatboxreset\centering \makeatother in the preamble, so that every tikzpicture is centered =) – N3buchadnezzar Jul 7 '12 at 10:52
@N3buchadnezzar Also covered in my answer to the linked question. – lockstep Jul 7 '12 at 10:53
I know =) Exelent answer, that is why I posted it as a comment not as an answer. I guess this question can be closed as Jake said, it is a duplicate. – N3buchadnezzar Jul 7 '12 at 10:55

\begin{figure}[!h]
\centering
\tikz
\end{figure}

 This seems to work well, thanks! – Jacob Gabrielson Dec 4 '09 at 23:37

When the picture doesn't need to be put in a figure (i.e. when it doesn't need a caption), I use

\begin{center}
\begin{tikzpicture}
....
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{center}

\hbox to \hsize{\hfil{Anything}\hfil}
