This post is to test the proposal I gave in answer to Tag synonyms and how they work.

I have proposed the tag synonym -> , which you can vote on at the following page: {tikz-pgf} synonyms.

I found that the tag was almost entirely unused, and those uses were probably accidents, and in any case that any question that could be tagged by it would be equally appropriate for in general, since virtually all uses of the tikz package go through tikzpicture. Note that already redirects to this tag.

  • Upvoted the proposal, +1!

    @RyanReich: Yes, I just posted some discussion on this in Meta. I noticed this during some of your tag wiki edits/additions. Excerpts should not include them using markdown (since the excerpt does not support the syntax) but should include them using a verbatim {<tag>} syntax. In contrast, tag wikis should definitely use them.

  • @Werner: I learned what you say by (trial and) error while editing, so indeed, many of my excerpts are a little broken.
