Listoffigures prevents compiling

Postby diamond_kid on Wed Jul 10th, 2013

Hello,
I'm writing my bachelor thesis at the moment and I encountered a problem regarding \listoffigures.

I wrote different tex-files and \input them all togheter and the list of figures worked at the beginning, but suddenly an error occured. If I comment the command out, everything works fine. But now, even if I comment everything out, it won't compile.

This is the error message:

! pdfTeX error (ext1): \pdfendlink cannot be used in vertical mode.
\close@pdflink ...\Hy@VerboseLinkStop \pdfendlink
l.18 ...5}{\ignorespaces \@@par }}{18}{figure.2.5}


And this is the code of the master tex-file. If other information is needed, just say it :)

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass[a4paper,twoside,english,12pt]{scrbook}


\input{formal/packages}
\input{formal/pagestyle}

\makeindex
\hfuzz=20pt
\vfuzz=20pt
\pagenumbering{alph}
\selectlanguage{english}

\begin{document}
    \addtokomafont{captionlabel}{\sffamily\bfseries}\setcapindent{0pt}
    \renewcommand{\tocetcmark}[1]{\markboth{#1}{#1}}

    \input{formal/startpages}
    \input{summary}
    \input{zusammenfassung}
    \tableofcontents
    \input{abbriviations}

    \cleardoublepage
    \pagenumbering{arabic}

    \input{introduction}
    \input{theory}
    \input{experiment}
    \input{results}
    \input{outlook}

    \begin{appendix}
        \cleardoublepage
        \pagenumbering{Alph}
        \input{appendix}
        \input{formal/bibliography}
        \listoffigures
        \input{formal/index}
        \input{formal/endpages}
    \end{appendix}
\end{document
}


Thanks in advance!

cheers, Patrick

There is a problem with your \caption of Figure 2.5, I assume you use a fragile command in there which needs protection.

Comment out this caption, delete your .aux and .lof file, and try again. If you can compile your document twice now, take a closer look at the \caption you have commented out to see what's wrong with it.

You are right, I used \textcolor with a self-defined color and that caused the problem. \protect fixed the problem, thanks a lot!
