comment Including tikz causes error
I am guessing that your editor is not calling the relevant compiler properly.

comment How to reproduce these images with Tikz/ pgfplots?
A full answer has a full example and tells why things work. You are linking to an old version of the manual and asking them to read a 1000 page manual for a basic thing. That's not how we treat questions here. Check meta (in the same vein as pointing the manual) we have discussed this at least ten times.

This is more of a comment since it doesn't answer the question other than read the manual

@MathematicalOrchid That thing about color is not true. There is simply ample amount of packages which fixes that. Better not hit on that nail if you mean LaTeX. You can have as many pages as you want. xcolor for example is a top notch package.

I think you have not been using new TeX packages in the last 5 years. Practically your first 5 points are not true about disadvantages of TeX. Plus who writes down those documents to be handled by an editing documents software in the first place?

comment Label distance and other issues in a TikZ diagramm
Nitpicking but if a junction has no sign change, nothing is placed, only negated ones are shown. So here you only need at the right. (and Feedforward block is dashed :P )

@T.Verron Big documents are usually structured so you can work on it part by part via \input{} or \include{} otherwise we would see a pike in the PhD suicides :) So far what I'm really fed up with is Ctrl+A + F9 + click about ten times entire document and after finishing a subitem you hit enter twice then you change your mind and want to create it again but fun begins. Oh my, I can really punch my computer every time I have to do that.

This is a little too easy for the MWE compared to your comment. Can you include your real case a little more realistic if possible?

Do you have TikZ v3.00? you can put \pgfversion in your document to see what it is.
