How can I input ' symbol in tikz node?

I wish it looks like

But actually '9' will be like below in tikz:

\node[draw] (N) {'9'};

  • this is not a TikZ issue ... you need to use adequate font, which provide desired shapes.

  • here on site are many question how to identified some font. If you have pdf reader document with this '9', than look for used fonts. As you can see, fonts used in this comments is very similar to what you looking for. unfortunately I don't know, which one is used here. I'm not font experts :-(

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{textcomp}     


\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}
\node[draw] (N) {\textquotesingle9\textquotesingle};    
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}

  • you can improve solution with \node[draw,font=\sffamily] (N) {\textquotesingle 9 \textquotesingle};. this gives better approximation of showed example

  • Good suggestion, thanks. OP appears happy with the solution as provided, though. I think s/he was mostly looking for straight quotes instead of curly ones.
