While I was testing an answer of mine, I realized I had to set the standalone border option to border={2mm 2mm 14mm 2mm} because simply with border=2mm the image was truncated.


\documentclass[tikz, border=2mm]{standalone}
%\documentclass[tikz, border={2mm 2mm 14mm 2mm}]{standalone}
\usepackage{amsmath, amssymb}
        &[-30pt] \ker(f) \arrow[dl, phantom, sloped, "\supset"] \arrow[dr, phantom, sloped, "\subset"]&[-30pt] & &[-75pt] \\[-4pt]
        \ker(w) \arrow[rr, phantom, "\subset"]& & E \arrow[rr, "w"] \arrow[rd, end anchor={[xshift=.5em]north west}, "\pi_f"] \arrow[dd, swap, "f"] & & \mathbb{K}\\
        & & & E/\ker(f) \simeq Im(f) \arrow[ru, dashrightarrow, start anchor={[xshift=1.1em]north west}, swap, "w'"]& \\
        & & F & &

    The bounding box appears to be computed incorrectly. Possibly because of the [-75pt] – egreg Nov 12 '16 at 11:40
  • @egreg It's that, of course, but it's necessary, otherwise I don't get the desidered alignment. Thank you! – CarLaTeX Nov 12 '16 at 15:22
  • You should use \mathllap/\mathclap/\mathrlap instead of playing with global settings. Voss's Mathmode.pdf has an example regarding ∑_{something too long}. – Symbol 1 Nov 12 '16 at 18:09
  • By the way: The au­thor con­sid­ers this pack­age now as be­ing too old and af­flicted with too many ty­po­graph­i­cal bugs. That’s why it has been clas­si­fied as “ob­so­lete”, at least for the time be­ing. – Symbol 1 Nov 12 '16 at 18:13
  • @Symbol1 I'll study Voss's Mathmode.pdf, thank you! Where is it written that tikz-cd is obsolete? I've found no news googling around... – CarLaTeX Nov 12 '16 at 18:29

Here is an answer combining several tricks:

  • define new styles for subsets/supersets
  • use \mathrlap for overlay part
    • use \mathord to control the spacing before \mathrlap
    • Im should be \operatorname{Im}.
  • usage of column sep= to avoid the diagram being too wide.
    • add additional & to create spaces on the right. (This is dirty!)

\documentclass[tikz, border=2mm]{standalone}
        subset/.code={\tikzcdset{double line}\pgfsetarrows{Arc Barb[length=0 .5].-}},
        supset/.code={\tikzcdset{double line}\pgfsetarrows{-.Arc Barb[length=0 .5]}}
    \begin{tikzcd}[column sep=tiny]
        & \ker(f) \dlar[subset] \drar[subset] &&& \\
        \ker(w) \ar[rr,subset]& & E \ar[rr, "w"] \drar["\pi_f"] \arrow[dd,',"f"] && \mathbb{K} \\
        &&& E/\ker(f)\mathrlap{\mathord{}\simeq Im(f)} \urar[dashrightarrow,',"w'"]& \\
        && F &&&&
  • This can be an answer also of the original question. Great subset and supset but I think mine are more clearly visible. – CarLaTeX Nov 12 '16 at 19:29
  • nice solution, but it is difficult to recognize \subsets relation between top left nodes ... – Zarko Nov 12 '16 at 19:46
  • @Zarko Then one needs to use, for example,double distance between line centers=1.3ex. – Symbol 1 Jun 18 '17 at 14:04
