### starting from scratch with atom

it's worth mentioning that invoice.sty (which is what I assume is being invoked by \usepackage) doesn't look like it's been updated since 2011. I can compile the document without error if I also comment out '\usepackage{invoice}'.

Could it be that the issue is the invoice package being … *counts, mutters "holy crap" to self* … seven years old?

Cheers,

Yes, look at my edit above. Or have a look at https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions ... 1122#61122 which is from 2012.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

update: It turns out that the invoice package is, indeed, super-old and was the source of my problems. Telling atom instead to \usepackage{invoice2} allowed me to get my MWE (and by extension, the more complicated version I've been working on) to compile correctly.

Now I can get back to the more fundamental task of migrating everything to 1) use the local texlive installation, and 2) have my large project (a doctoral dissertation) as .tex files instead of using Lyx as I was when I started down this rabbit-hole.

thanks for the help!
