using plot in path draw

Postby kent » Sun Apr 07, 2019 5:12 pm

In the attached file it is a very simple path draw using the plot option. However, an error message is issued compaining about a possible missing semicolon. I have not been able to spot the error. Anybody who can?

Hi Kent!

I think it's caused by illegal characters in the document source, that's possibly not visible in your editor. That's what I see in TeXworks:

I get the same error as you:

Package tikz Error: Giving up on this path. Did you forget a semicolon?

But once I removed those characters, the error is gone and it works fine. Can you try it?
