Error message in WebQuiz

Hi Boczko,

welcome to the forum!

There was an error in the pgf package causing such a message, that has been fixed. Try if you can update the pgf package using tlmgr, the TeX Live Manager.

Otherwise, try adding \usepackage{pgf} to ensure it's loaded.

Hi thilinihnd,

welcome to the forum!

Simple typing mistake :-) can easily happen. It's good anyway when there's an easy solution!

But mainly I wanted to say welcome, here.

Can package updates ruin my books? Topic is solved

LaTeX itself can be considered as very stable. But packages are often updated with more features or improvements. Sometimes an issue can happen, as there are a lot of packages and there may be, for example, a conflict with another package. A change of a package could also cause an error, mistakes ca...

New ProTex user, and a bit lost

You can use your Windows fonts with XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX. Simplest example:

Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \documentclass{article}
  2. \usepackage{fontspec}
  3. \setmainfont{Zapfino}
  4. \begin{document}
  5. That is a beautiful font.
  6. \end{document}

How to achieve multiple “LastPage” in one document? Topic is solved

Remove that \setcounter{page}{1} as it's done in the macro.

That doesn't raise my trust in Windows or ProTeXt or MiKTeX.

It shouldn't do a lot in the registry I assume. So one may just delete the MiKTeX folder on the disk and then install TeX Live.

How to achieve multiple “LastPage” in one document? Topic is solved

Storing data in the aux file and using it, requires another LaTeX run to read it in. I didn't analyze why one needs 3 runs here, but I'm aware that sometimes even more than 2 runs are required until stuff is balanced, such as auto-adjusting lengths of TOC numbering entries.

That file is source code and probably not present on your system but for example on Github. Well, there is one big distribution that is maintained and tested and ported to many platforms, and that is TeX Live . Then there is MiKTeX, a admirable effort of a single developer, only available for Window...
