The Fourier package gives a different look for the arrowheads, which looks nice to me. I also want to use this arrowhead in the commutative diagrams. I have tried Taylor's diagrams package, xy-matrix, but the arrowheads they produce is not the type I want. The best one is the Stealth style arrowhead from tikz. Since I only need simple diagrams, I really don't want to be tortured by tikz complicated syntax. Is it possible to transplant this Stealth style to diagrams or xy-matrix?

TikZ's syntax is complicated because it's

powerful. You may only want a simple diagram now, but later on, you'll hit the edge of what's possible with`xy`

. I'd recommend learning the basics of TikZ, the effort will repay itself as soon as you want to draw anything complicated.And anyway, TikZ syntax isn't

thatcomplicated for simple diagrams:And you can make things easier by specifying at the start that all paths should have the

`[-stealth]`

decoration and so on...
