@percusse No, it's not better. Specifying the node manually does work though.

comment How to insert a linebreak in a TikZ matrix node?
@percusse (Too late for editting) Apparently, align is enough for a node, not for a matrix cell. --- And reading back the whole conversation, I guess that it is what you meant from the start. Sorry!

comment How to insert a linebreak in a TikZ matrix node?
@percusse According to this link, setting align without text width should be enough. If you look at the revisions of my answer, you'll see that I used to believe that too, back in may 2013. However, apparently it was no longer the case in sept. 2013, if it ever was (it was long ago... I think I tested before posting, but...) It seems that you tested it back in july 2013 as well, based on the comments in the linked thread. Do you know what changed exactly in summer 2013 on this matter?

comment How to insert a linebreak in a TikZ matrix node?
@Symbol1 Oh I see, even the default anchor at center is off (well, it's not, but a path drawn towards it will be clipped prematurely). This is mainly caused by the text width, not the alignment. Anyway, I hadn't thought of that, I editted my answer. Thanks!

@percusse What do you mean? It doesn't compile with align=center and no text width specification.

@AlfredM. If you wanted to get my attention on this problem, posting a comment to the answer would have been safer. ;) As far as I know, there is no easy way to get rid of the text width option. If I remember correctly, the reason for this option is that a node with a line break is implemented as a minipage, and this requires setting the width explicitely. However, if you aren't interested in doing that in a matrix cell, you can use two nodes aligned in a matrix to emulate the linebreak behavior.
