If you are interested in my TeX-related projects, you can find various TikZ libraries over at my GitHub account.

The libraries are:

  • node-families

    The node-families library has been developed in response to “Dependent node size” where the Op asks for automatic re-sizing of related nodes so that they have the same minimum size.

    Use the keys

    • Minimum Width=<family>,
    • Minimum Height=<family>,
    • Text Height=<family> and
    • Text Width=<family>

    to assign a node to a specific family of nodes that shall have the same dimensions. This works on a per-picture basis and uses the .aux file so you will need at least two compilations.

  • paths.ortho ([1] and [2])

    This library is too huge to explain it here. Take a look at my answers [3] and [4].

  • paths.rectangle

    The paths.rectangle library provides two similar timers (the functions that place nodes along paths) for the rectangle path operator. They are explained on the answer that inspired the creation of these timers.

  • patterns.images: See [5].
  • positioning-plus: See [6].

comment Text and math versions of textual (non-numeric) footnote symbols
There is a related question/answer on the XeTeX mailing list titled fnsymbol. In the group de.comp.text.tex there even is a definition of \@fnsymbol that uses text or math mode: [fixltx2e + mathpazo] tanks verwirrt?.

comment Collectively aligning multiple align environments
@TimParenti Than you have to ask yourself if those equations are still related enough should they even be aligned across paragraphs. Instead of \par or a blank line you could use the (potentially dangerous) macro \endgraf: When is it better to use \par than \endgraf?

comment Node numbers in index of coordinatesystem
To summarize, you need three kind of coordinate systems? The one along the path that is only labeled x and y, one at the nodes that are labeled F_{<number>x} and F_{<number>y} and a third that is placed at the nodes but rotated along the path with inverted arrows and labeled u<number> and v<number>?

It might be a good to start reading the manual for the amsmath package and browsing align.

comment pgfkeys: Store unknown keys in a command
Does there exist a pre-defined list of “unknown” keys that are allowed for storing in that list command? Other than that you might just add (expanded once) \pgfkeyscurrentname and \pgfkeyscurrentvalue to that list? Of course, any misspelled or really unknown key will be forwarded too.

comment mirror node shape
@ted The inside solution comes from the linked question. — No special reason but my own style. There is no difference where you place the options for a node as long as they are between node (or \node) and the node text {}. I like to gather them directly behind the node/\node text as I find the code more readable that way.

Alright, rotate=180 and its clone point left also rotate the &. My fix would be to remove that & and simply put a label where it usually would be.

comment How to draw straight lines between nodes in commutative diagram without using TikZ matrix library?
The arrows are straight (they’re just not horizontal). The problem is the placement of the nodes which is not consistent in the way you use it. Why don’t you simply use a matrix (which is used for tikz-cd too)? The on grid option does help here too (as it uses the center anchor for both nodes: the one that is referenced and the one that is placed)) but has other disadvantages (overlapping nodes).

@Joerg You can still edit your question to include a minimal working example (MWE).
