Use \#1, \#2, etc. for macro variables.
3.1

Using XY-Matrix

3.1.1 Frames around elements

Macros are only available in the document after they were dened.

*++[o][F-]\{ELEM}
Where:
Number of + control frame size
[o] makes round-shaped frame
F- means single line [use F= for double line].

These will not be shown in compiled document, so


simply add them on top.

3.1.2 Arrows
Use \ar[direction ] to add arrow in required direction
- denoted in letters u/d/l/r.
For exapmle, \ar[ddl] will add arrow to the element
located 2 rows down and 1 column to the left.
Use \ar@(out,in )[target ] to add curved arrow leaving
current elemnt in out direction, entering to target at
in direction.

3.1.3 Example:
/ v2

v0
W
v1

This is the code used to create the example:


Enter an xymatrix of 2 rows and 3 columns.
The following following code goes in cells (1,1), (1,3),
(2,2) respectively:
*++[o][F-]{v_{0}}\ar[dr]\ar[rr]
*++[F=]{v_{2}}
*++[o][F-]{v_{1}}\ar@(dl,ul)[lu]
