circumflex accent

Postby vanessaj » Tue Jun 30, 2015 11:08 am


I am a beginner, so please forgive me for giving explanation that may not be clear.
I am working with Mac.

I am using the engine XeLaTex, as required “by” the console.
For all circumflex accent, for example ô
  1. \ˆ{o}
I have the comment :
Undefined control sequence.

I had tried without success
  1. \usepackage{xunicode}
  1. \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

Any idea ?
In advance, thank you.

Hi, how would you type in the letter including the diacritic when writing in word, or when writing an email? With XeLaTeX, you type it in just the same way.

  1. \documentclass{article}
  2. \usepackage{fontspec}
  3. \begin{document}
  4. I can type \^o or \^{o} or ô.
  5. \end{document}

The other notation should work as well, so there might be something else going on.

Hint: There is a simple algorithm to find the source of a problem, when finished you will have a so called minimal working example that we can use to test possible solutions. More Information: Creating a minimal example
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
