Is there any list of all possible arrows that I can write with LaTeX? For example like this one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arrow_(symbol)

  • Some arrows are missing. For example, I was reading a paper and i found this one: i67.tinypic.com/15hjtah.gif How can I do an arrow like this? – NxA Sep 23 '16 at 10:00
  • Do you need other arrows than in the link? If necessary, you can create them yourself. Simplest way is using inkscape, inlude it as pdf or eps and scale it to the fontsize. – MaestroGlanz Sep 23 '16 at 10:01
  • latex-pfeile.de Does this help? – MaestroGlanz Sep 23 '16 at 10:03
  • Yes, thanks. I'd like to upvote your comment, but I don't have enough privileges. – NxA Sep 23 '16 at 10:07

There is a good overview on latex-pfeile.de/. It is German, but it should be pretty much self explaining.


Probably the best source for finding arrows and other symbols is The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List: https://www.ctan.org/pkg/comprehensive


The arrow you provide a link in a comment is \rightsquigarrow, defined in amssymb. In my opinion this family is nicer (and more complete) in mathabx, and you can use some of its characters, while still loading amssymb:


\usepackage{mathtools, amssymb}

  <-6> mathb5 <6-7> mathb6 <7-8> mathb7
  <8-9> mathb8 <9-10> mathb9
  <10-12> mathb10 <12-> mathb12


  \texttt{amssymb: } &   & \rightsquigarrow & \leftrightsquigarrow \\
  \texttt{mathabx: } & \varleftsquigarrow & \varrightsquigarrow & \varleftrightsquigarrow 
  \end{array} \]%
