I am drawing flowcharts using TiKz. I have found a number of suggestions here and here. However, I have not found code to draw a manual input nodenode images (image source)

I could eventually figure this out, but I am new to TiKz, and would help to know if someone already has the code.

Take a look at the PGFmanual, especially the tape shape from the shapes.symbols library and the trapezium shape from the shapes.geometric library.

For the multi-document node the double copy shadow shadow is used with the fill=white option. The double copy shadow key is also explained in the manual and accepts any additional shadow options.

Code

\documentclass[tikz,border={5pt}]{standalone}
\usetikzlibrary{shapes.symbols,shapes.geometric,shadows}
\tikzset{
  multidocument/.style={
    shape=tape,
    draw,
    fill=white,
    tape bend top=none,
    double copy shadow},
  manual input/.style={
    shape=trapezium,
    draw,
    shape border rotate=90,
    trapezium left angle=90,
    trapezium right angle=80}}
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\node [multidocument]            {Multi-document};
\node [manual input] at (0,-1.5) {Manual Input};
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

Output

  • shape border rotate=90. Clever idea! I was just searching for something like this. Jun 5, 2021 at 17:29
