I requested the wrong release of LaTeX Topic is solved

Recently I have been getting the following error LaTeX Warning: You have requested release `2014/05/01' of LaTeX, but only release `2011/06/27' is available. I think it has something to do with package lastpage. How can I get rid of it? Here's the smallest MWE I could make. \documentclass[14pt,fleqn...

Re: How do I prevent latex from inserting unwanted dollar si Topic is solved

Thansk, Johannes. What exactly was the part that told Latex not to insert dollar signs? I notice you treated the circumflex differently in two different spots. Once you explicitly said "\circumflex" and once you just escaped it with a slash. What's the difference? Were you just showing me ...

How do I prevent latex from inserting unwanted dollar signs? Topic is solved

The quoted code is supposed to represent instructions for using a calculator (MWE at the bottom). However, the latex compiler insists on inserting "$" in various places. For example, it puts a dollar sign prior to the text "x^3", then the output is an x raised to the third power,...

Re: What control sequence is undefined here? Topic is solved

I found the one single difference between the above nonworking MWE and a working MWE I made: I did not include the "optional" points parameter on the \question command. The following works, but I have no idea why. \documentclass[fleqn,addpoints ,answers ]{exam} \usepackage{amsfonts,amsmath...

What control sequence is undefined here? Topic is solved

When I add \sol{} to the following document, I start to get the error Undefined control sequence <argument> \padded@point@block And the problem is not fixed when I add content to the \sol{<content>} . The funny thing is, I've used \sol{} in many previous documents without any issues, but I get an er...

Re: Missing copyright on its own page Topic is solved

Thanks for your last reply. But since it worked with article class, I just left it. For the reason you described, you have to compile it a second time when converting from report class to article.

Re: Missing copyright on its own page Topic is solved

Thanks very much. Does this solution require documentclass{report} or can I switch back to article ? Report class has changed my section numbering. When I tried to use article, I got 4 errors saying "Something's wrong--perhaps a missing \item". Also, report class has made my Table of Conte...

Missing copyright on its own page Topic is solved

How do I get the copyright statement on its own page, no page number, title, or anything else on it? (Bonus if it can be moved down the page, but that is of considerably less import). I can only get it to work if use \maketitle (why?). This first MWE works correctly. That is, it prints the copyrigh...

What's wrong with my boxes? Topic is solved

I'm coming into the home stretch of my thesis, and my school is finicky about margins and page size and all that. My document has 4 remain "Bad Box(es)" which I cannot figure out why they are bad? They don't run over any margin or anything like that. So what (if anything) is wrong with my ...
