# [Tex/LaTex] Increasing the length of arrows in latex

arrowscommutative-diagrams

Attached is the code I'm using for drawing commutator diagrams. I want to increase the length of the arrows. How can I do that.

$$\begin{xy}\xymatrix{ E \ar[r]^*{e} & X \ar[r]<4pt>^*{s} \ar[r]<-4pt>_*{t} & Y \\ Z \ar[u]<4pt>^*{\gamma_1} \ar[u]<-4pt>_*{\gamma_2} \ar[ur]_*{e \circ \gamma_1 = e \circ \gamma_2} }\end{xy}$$


It's quite easy:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage[all,cmtip]{xy}

\begin{document}

$\xymatrix@R+1pc@C+1pc{ E \ar[r]^*{e} & X \ar[r]<4pt>^*{s} \ar[r]<-4pt>_*{t} & Y \\ Z \ar[u]<4pt>^*{\gamma_1} \ar[u]<-4pt>_*{\gamma_2} \ar[ur]_*{e \circ \gamma_1 = e \circ \gamma_2} }$

\end{document}


With @R+1pc I tell Xy-pic to increase by 1pc (12pt) the interrow space; similarly, @C+1pc increases the intercolumn space. You'd get the same result with

\xymatrix@+1pc{


which would apply the setting to both the interrow and intercolumn spaces. Specifying them separately allows for finer control.

Note you should use $...$ and not $$, see Why is $...$ preferable to$$ ... ? You also need no xy environment.

The same with tikz-cd:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{tikz-cd}

\begin{document}

$\begin{tikzcd}[column sep=3em,row sep=3em] E \arrow[r,"e"] & X \arrow[r,shift left=.7ex,"s"] \arrow[r,shift right=.7ex,swap,"t"] & Y \\ Z \arrow[u,shift left=.7ex,"\gamma_1"] \arrow[u,shift right=.7ex,swap,"\gamma_2"] \arrow[ur,swap,"e \circ \gamma_1 = e \circ \gamma_2"] \end{tikzcd}$

\end{document}
