I have the following tree:



\Tree [.A [.a ] [.B [.A ] [.a ] ] ]


and I would like the A -> B -> A skeleton to be a straight line (meaning, the angle between the branches should be different, so that A -> B -> A goes straight down).

Also, I would like to have a dashed curvy line connecting between the two "a"s. Are those two things possible?

(I don't mind using tikz-qtree instead if needed.)


Do you want something like this?

As the eagle flies from A through B to another A

I did this with Forest because it makes it easy. Perhaps tikz-qtree offers something similar, but Forest is generally more capable in this regard.

\Forest{[A[a][B, calign with current [A, calign with current][a]]]}
  • It is strange - I have to delete the .aux file every time to get it to show the tree properly. Otherwise, the whole page becomes blank and stuff disappears. I am unable to create a MWE, unfortunately, it is in a bigger document. – user2299502 Apr 12 '18 at 12:40
