# Strange uparrow heads at the right

How can I remove the up arrowheads at the right side and why they are appear? thanks a lot !

This is the third time that I post a second answer on this site. The reason is that I believe that my above answer answers the original question. This is just for fun, and also to tell AndréC, with whom I agree most of the time, that here I do not think that using graphs is a good idea. Rather, if you seek simplification, use forest for that.

\draw[dashed,-latex] () -- ++ (2,-0.2);}

As you can see, there is not a single explicit coordinate. And if you ever decide to add some more nodes, or to change the way the nodes get connected: it will be a simple switch, not a complete revision of the code. Your tree (yes, such diagrams are called trees ;-) seems to have a simple pattern, which I was not able to understand completely. However, if there is a pattern, you could simply use delay and content/.wrap n pgfmath args to fill all nodes automatically. (But I guess this would deserve a new question, and an answer by @cfr.;-)

Now the arrows are gone. So are all the unrelated packages and libraries. The arrows come from the somewhat self-contradictory lines of the type \draw (12,10.2) node [draw=none,fill=none] (p1) {}; in connection with -latex in the picture options.

Of course, you may want to apply some immediate simplifications to your code. For instance, none of your nodes is a circle because you override all circles with rectangles. And instead of this lengthy expressions you could just use coordinates.

On the long run, however, you may not want to use all the explicit coordinates, but really work with positioning, but I leave that for another day.

In addition to the response from @marmot, I would like to point out that the problem comes from the fact that you use the \draw operation to place nodes instead of the \node operation.

I rewrote your code using only the operation \node and placed nodes with the same options in a scope environment to lighten the code.

\begin{scope}[every node/.style={state,rectangle}]


I did the same with the edges:

\begin{scope}[every edge/.style={draw,dashed}]


I have also deleted the packages that are not related to this MWE.

## Update:

Since you are loading the graphs library, it is possible to use its syntax to make the code even lighter. As the nodes already exist, it is necessary to specify this with the use existing nodes option so that the graphs operation does not create new nodes.
