Probably you do not have certain packages installed, though I gather that MiKTeX is supposed to install them on the fly. In any event, if you can post the errors you are getting, then we can help. Go to Document> LaTeX Log. You can either cut and paste what's there, or hit "Open Containing Directory" and attach the *.log file. RK > On 11.03.2018 17:38, Kornel Benko wrote: >> Am Sonntag, 11.
