# My TikZ output is omitting nodes

I really don't understand why this is happening, so I thought it was a bug from TeXStudio, but when I went on TeXShop and created a MWE it persists. I have the following code:

\documentclass[border=2pt]{standalone}

\usepackage{tikz}

\usetikzlibrary{arrows}

\tikzstyle{style1}=[rectangle, rounded corners, text centered, draw=black, fill=red, text width=7em]
\tikzstyle{arrow}=[very thick, ->, >=latex]
\tikzstyle{title}=[text centered, text width=6em, circle, draw=black, fill=blue]

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}

\node[title]{Big Title};
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}


Where did my final four nodes go off to? I can't figure it out!

The reason I thought it was a bug was because TeXStudio is weird every so often and does this thing where it will always jump back to a previously-built document, despite the code... It's really strange.

Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated!

• Check out semicolons. – ferahfeza Apr 7 at 11:50
• The first semicolon closes the path, the rest is thrown away... Just remove all semicolons minus the last one (or add more path commands). – Rmano Apr 7 at 12:02
• You can shorten your code as \foreach \i/\angle in {1/90,2/145,3/180,4/215,5/270,6/325,7/0,8/35}{ \path (\angle :\radius) node[style1](n\i){n\i};} \node[title](BB){Big Title}; – ferahfeza Apr 7 at 12:08
• Ah, thank you @ferahfeza. Bit of a noob question... Sorry! And thanks for the suggested code. I never really knew how to use the \foreach command, so thanks for that! – Christopher Tatlock Apr 7 at 12:16
• @ChristopherTatlock, your welcome. – ferahfeza Apr 7 at 12:17

As mentioned @Romano, the first semicolon closes the \path. Also as mentioned @marmot, \tikzstyle was converted to \tikzset

\documentclass[margin=3.1415mm]{standalone}

\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{arrows}

\tikzset{style1/.style={rectangle,rounded corners,  text centered, draw=black, fill=red, text width=7em}}

\tikzset{title/.style={text centered, text width=6em, circle, draw=black, fill=blue}}

\tikzset{arrow/.style={very thick,->, >=latex}}

\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
