I Need to reproduce a figure somewhat like the one here: Drawing Angles

The problem is that I get a figure wich differ from the original one: the arrow at the end of the spiral get vertical direction.

Arrow at the end of a spiral

What's wrong here.

\documentclass[border=5mm]{standalone}
\usepackage{pgfplots}
\begin{document}
    \begin{tikzpicture}
        \begin{axis}[
            axis lines=middle,
            axis equal image,
            enlargelimits,
            xtick=\empty, ytick=\empty,
            data cs=polar,
            samples=100
        ]
            \addplot [thick, black, smooth, domain=0:360] {1};
            \addplot [thick, red, -latex, smooth, domain=0:405] {0.3+x/2000} node [pos=0.9, anchor=south west] {$405^\circ$};
            \addplot [thick, black] coordinates {(0,0) (405,1)};
        \end{axis}
    \end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

  • This question does not fall within the scope of TeX, LaTeX or related typesetting systems as defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • We really cannot possibly say what's wrong here without seeing where here is. Please post your code in the form of a small, complete document we can compile to reproduce the problem with the arrow. – cfr Sep 20 '15 at 12:01
  • I cannot reproduce the problem using the code you've posted. What version of pgfplots do you have and which version of TikZ/PGF? – cfr Sep 20 '15 at 13:20
  • I'm using v2.10 for both. – Hamed Sep 20 '15 at 14:16

    Then please upgrade. Then it will work. – user11232 Sep 20 '15 at 14:32

    I'm voting to close this question because it is solved by updating TikZ and/or PGFPlots. – Stefan Pinnow Nov 28 '16 at 20:09
