On Wed, 28 Mar 2012 Michael Fütterer and Jonathan Zachhuber submitted the
tikzpfeile
package.
Summary description: A LaTeX package for drawing arrows using PGF/TikZ
License type: lppl
Announcement text:

In mathematical texts that contain commutative diagrams created with PGF/TikZ, it might be disturbing that regular arrows (such as \rightarrow) and the PGF/TikZ arrows in the diagrams have diﬀerent heads. This package deﬁnes commands that draw arrows using PGF/TikZ. Using these instead of the regular arrows makes your document look more consistent. Moreover, using PGF/TikZ, a lot more diﬀerent arrow types can be drawn.

This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/graphics/pgf/contrib/tikzpfeile . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/tikzpfeile (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

## tikzpfeile – Draw arrows using PGF/TikZ

In a document with a lot of diagrams created with PGF/TikZ, there
is a possibility of the reader being distracted by different sorts
of arrowheads in the diagrams and in the text (as, e.g., in
`\rightarrow`). The package defines macros to create all
arrows using PGF/TikZ, so as to avoid the problem.
