A number of operations and options introduced in the early versions of TikZ are no longer documented but are still used and useful.

For example, the syntax used in this question Specifying the point via "intersection of" in TikZ - a problem which is :

(intersection of a--b and c--d)

is no longer documented since version 3.0.

Ulrike Fischer asks the same question to Percusse in a comment on Feb 1 '16 at 9:19, I quote:

@percusse: Is this use of intersection of X and Y documented somewhere? I can find the documentation of the library and named path but nothing else.

Old code can be found everywhere on the net and the latest manuals do not always explain the syntax used.

The purpose of this question is to archive and to be able to quickly find old manuals.

  • @pluton Everything is translated with deepl.com the title of the question and the question itself and the answer. I say this because automatic translators, although they translate better than I do, can still make syntax errors. – AndréC Aug 5 at 6:38
  • but where is the original question? In which language? – pluton Aug 5 at 6:40
  • I asked the question and answered it myself. – AndréC Aug 5 at 6:41
  • It would then be nice to indicate the original language: Translated from <language> with DeepL – pluton Aug 5 at 6:54
