I’d like to make arrow tips in TikZ that match with xy-pic’s standard arrowheads. The methods from this similar question look appropriate, but I thought I’d check first: has anyone else already created these?

(The motivation is mainly that I’d like to have TikZ and xy-pic diagrams coexisting in the same document, since I often want the flexibility of TikZ, but I have co-authors who don’t know it and prefer to write in xy-pic.)


You should try the tikz-cd package. The package offers an arrow tip library that matches closely the arrows present in the Computer Modern typeface, which in turn match those of the xy-pic's standard arrow heads.
