# Tikz: More ways for angle marks in Tikz-styles

Continuing over this beautiful answer, is it possible to have the following additional angle marks? ((1) The angle with the dot in the center; (2) the violet angles with decorations, if possible, with the able to customize it (segment numbers, length, distance, color, etc.); (3) angles with multiple arcs.

• For the dot you can define the style with dot/.style={pic text=$\cdot$,angle eccentricity=.5,pic text options={#1}}, and then use it as simple as [with dot] or with options like [with dot={blue,scale=2}].

• replace $\cdot$ (which is not well centerd) by simple dot ..

Here is a proposal. As kindly explained by Kpym in the comments, there are two paths for the angle construction: the arc and the fill. One has to prevent TikZ from drawing the decoration twice. This answer comes with a style insert angle lines, which takes two arguments, the number of lines and the vertex they should connect to. An example is

\pic [draw=red,angle radius=1cm,insert angle lines={3}{A}]
{angle = C--A--B};


There is a second style for the dot

\pic [draw=blue,angle radius=1cm,insert angle dot={B}] {angle = A--B--C};


If you wan to change the style of these marks, adjust every angle mark. Here is the MWE.

\documentclass[tikz,border=10pt]{standalone}
\usetikzlibrary{decorations.markings,angles}
\newcounter{trstep}
\begin{document}

• @blackened You want three parallel angle arcs? And what do you mean by add a point in the center option?

• The decoration is run twice because two paths are used : one for draw (only the arc) with [pic actions, fill=none, shade=none] and one for fill (for the sector) with [pic actions, draw=none].

• @blackened I added a style of that sort.

• @blackened AFAIK this is a sort of unsolved problem for double lines, see e.g. tex.stackexchange.com/q/159333/121799. The only clean way to avoid this seems to be to draw several lines rather than a single double or triple line. If you have a uniformly colored background, you can use double=background to fix it, but this won't work if the background is non-uniform.
