That's what a node does, and it can have a fill. What's the purpose of the figure environment? \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz} \newcommand{\fourcards}[4]{% \begin{figure} \centering \begin{tabular}{cccc} \tikz \node[draw,fill=green!50] {#1}; & \tikz \node[draw,fill=magenta] {#2}; & \...

If the color pattern is given by a mathematical function, you might want to plot it using the pgfplots colormap. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{pgfplots} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture} \begin{axis}[view={0}{90}] \addplot3[surf] {exp(-((x)^2+(y)^2))}; \end{axis} \end{tikzpicture} \end{document}

An example with TiKZ and a colorseries from xcolor. \documentclass[tikz,border=2mm]{standalone} \usetikzlibrary{calc} \begin{document} \pgfmathsetseed{1} \begin{tikzpicture} \definecolorseries{test}{rgb}{step}[rgb]{.95,.85,.55}{.17,.47,.37} \resetcolorseries[35]{test} \foreach \x in {0,1,...,4}{ \foreach \y in {0,1,...,7} \fill[test!!+] (\x,\y) ...

Well, after looking on this and other references, I think, it is too difficult for me than needed. So, I fixed it by using arrow and rectangle... \documentclass[12pt]{article} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{shapes,arrows,shapes.geometric,positioning,patterns,arrows.meta} \begin{document} \thispagestyle{empty} \begin{center} \begin{tikzpicture}[ ...

@Henri Menke's suggestions was exactly what I needed: TikZ has an external library, which automatically exports any tikzpicture into a pdf file and is highly customizable (chapter 50 of pgf manual). To start using it all one needs is: \usetikzlibrary{external} \tikzexternalize To enable/disable externalization of pictures until the end of the current ...

Did you try anchor=mid as I suggested yesterday? Did you try looking it up to find out what it does? Presumably not ... mynode/.style={rectangle, anchor=mid, text height=1em, font=\sffamily, text width=7.5em, align=center, draw}, gives me Now, clearly, you cannot have your cake and eat it. If you align the nodes with .mid then they will be aligned ...

You need some text height and text depth as is explained in tutorial Diagram as Simple Graphs from pgfmanual. \documentclass[12pt]{standalone} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{graphs, matrix, arrows.meta} \begin{document} \tikzset{graph/.style={matrix of nodes, inner sep=.25em, row sep= 1.5em, column sep= 1.5em, column sep= 6.25em}} \tikzset{...

Basic explanation of meaning some commands/macros used in my answer I already add to the answer, so here I more or less repeat them. In graph are used predefined shapes of nodes. For its definition is used `\tikzset{ ...}, but they also can be defined locally as \begin{tikzpicture}[ presets of used graph elements ] < ...

Draw the grid but clipped with a convenient path. \documentclass[tikz,border=2mm]{standalone} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture} \clip[draw] (0,-3cm) -- (3,0) -- (0,3)--(-3,0)--cycle; \draw[step=.5, red, thin] (-3cm,-3cm) grid (3cm,3cm); \end{tikzpicture} \end{document} **Update: ** From Kevin comments I understand that he wants to draw a non ...

if you looking for something like this than the following MWE can be of help: \documentclass[tikz,border=3mm]{standalone} \newcommand\ppbb{path picture bounding box} \tikzset{% mynode/.style = {rectangle, path picture={% \draw[thick,red] (\ppbb.south west) |- (\ppbb.north east); \draw[thick,blue] (\ppbb.south west) -| (\ppbb.north ...
