Postby 21did21 » Thu Oct 06, 2011 5:13 pm

hello all,

I have a little worry, I'm a latex file and I had a lot of problems that came from.

So all I try to compile and commented line by line but texmaker said there is an error (I do not understand it).

could you tell me what it is and how to resolve please?

thank you in advance

perhaps you simply forgot writing


at the end of your document. There could be also other reasons. We could tell you more if you would show us code that produces the problem.

Please open up a new question for that.

You could try using the global option twocolumn.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
