I followed the link to sourceforge.net from Is it possible to change the size of an arrowhead in TikZ/PGF?. The last comment by left by Till Tantau led me to believe that I could implement code where I change the arrow size. So, I updated my TikZ packages from CVS.

Then I tried to rescale the arrows. This is what I tried

  \coordinate (A) at (0,0);
  \coordinate (B) at (3in,0);
  \draw[arrows=-{stealth[width=1cm,length=1cm]}] (A) -- (B);

But the code neither raises any errors nor does it seem to have any effect. Has anyone else tried to resize their arrows using the most recent CVS TikZ package?


I'm trying to follow the documentation in section 16.3 on Arrow keys. In fact, if I try to follow the example in the manual a bit more strictly, using Stealth instead of stealth I get an error message.

  • If I a) load the arrows.meta library and b) change stealth to Stealth, it works. (By the way, it raises error with my code but I may have a newer version than you had when you asked the question.) – Qrrbrbirlbel Oct 13 '13 at 15:11

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is solved with a package update. – Werner Mar 2 '14 at 3:56
