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 Sinuous arrow between nodes
It looks like TikZ doesn’t know the incoming direction and calculates atan(0/?) = 90° (a typical sign that something went wrong). I fear that arrows do not work with plot out of the box … Using Jake’s answer and the absolute supports key, TikZ places the arrow tip correctly. By the way, we do not have these images. We’ll use \usepackage[demo]{graphicx}.

comment Creating several rulers with TikZ
1. Yes, of course. Just because you draw from the right to the left, doesn’t mean that the labels change. But it easier just to have the x axis from the right to the left: [x=-1cm] (and use the coordinate system from TikZ). 2. There is no miter cap, only round, rect and the default butt: line cap=rect. 3. You want fourteen rules on one paper or on fourteen papers?

comment Problem drawing curved paths with TikZ
@ddcc You could also use a auxiliary coordinate, say ([xshift=-1cm] 2.west) that you use on the way.

comment Is there any way to make a function permanent in math mode?
@EthanBolker That’s what I’m getting at. Display-style math for inline math will create bad spacing between lines. Besides that, OP also welcomes “[a]ny other solution which would solve this problem”.

Use actual display-style math, i.e. \[ and \] or one of amsmath’s environments.

comment align inside of tabular
@DL6ER The align environment does need a line width (it stretches). So you’ll want to use a p column or something with the X column of tabularx.
