Compilation stalls

Postby Basin » Sat Apr 20, 2013 7:48 pm

Having worked adequately for a few months, the TeXnicCenter (TXC) installed on my machine has suddenly refused to compile the document I'm writing. There have been plenty of warnings about labels that as far as I can tell are in place, and warnings that it can't find picture files (which then appear in the compiled document).

Here is an error in the transcript.
  1. Runaway argument?
  2. [fig:electro
  3. (error circle)! File ended while scanning use of \@newl@bel.
  4. <inserted text>
  5. \par
  6. 1.8 \begin{document}

Sorry if this is a bit confused, I find TXC something of a black box. Is it clear what I've done wrong?

Hi Basin,

Welcome to the LaTeX community!

Without a Infominimal working example it is impossible to be sure but this looks like you've forgotten a closing brace when you declared the label fig:electro. It should look like \label{fig:electro} in your source...

...furthermore I recommend to delete the aux file since the error resides within this file.

Return to “General”
