# Flow chart document symbol

I am doing an old-style flow chart with TiKz, and I am defining my nodes with the \tikzstyle command (example \tikzstyle{startstop} = [rectangle, rounded corners, minimum width=3cm, minimum height=1cm,text centered, draw=black] for the start and stop nodes), but I haven't been able to find or create this figure:

It is used to represent documents in flow charts.

Welcome to TeX-SE! The good news is that this shape is already defined in the shapes.symbols library.

\documentclass[tikz,border=3.14mm]{standalone}
\usetikzlibrary{shapes.symbols}
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\node[tape,tape bend top=none,draw,font=\sffamily]{I'm a tape.};
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

• Thank you, \tikzstyle{io} = [tape, tape bend top = none] works like a charm! – Alejandra Romero Mar 28 at 21:07
• @AlejandraRomero You're welcome! Please use \tikzset{io/.style={tape, tape bend top = none}} instead, the reason being that \tikzstyle is deprecated. – user121799 Mar 28 at 21:09
