I am submitting a manuscript through Editorial Manager. I am getting this error. The manuscript successfully compiles on my local computer and also on WriteLatex which I used for editing. As I am new to Latex, I don't know how to fix this. This is compiled on the server side, so I cannot modify the installation folder. The problem is that I don't even know which line is causing the error in my manuscript file. Could someone please help me? The deadline for submission is today.

It says I can't find file 'tikzlibrarypositioning.code.tex'... l.32 \usetikzlibrary{positioning} but I don't even declare that as a package. Is it one of the packages I use that imports that? How do I know which one? These are my imports:

\usepackage[round]{natbib}
\usepackage[colorinlistoftodos]{todonotes}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{array,tabularx}
\usepackage{multicol}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage{multirow}
\usepackage{verbatim}
\usepackage{a4wide}
\usepackage[caption=false]{subfig}

The problem is with todonotes, I believe. They seem to have an outdated version of the TikZ/PGF suite. –  egreg Dec 31 '13 at 15:21

Too late for your submission, but I just ran into the very same issue with editorial manager. I had tikz code in my paper and I needed it to compile. My fix was uploading tikzlibrarypositioning.code.tex and tikzlibrarybackgrounds.code.tex from TeX Live additionally to my manuscript. The files are available in the svn repository of TeX Live. Maybe that is helpful for someone else.

Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. –  Speravir Mar 29 at 4:14
    
The files are already included in recent TikZ/pgf version 3.0, and this can be installed by updating TeX Live. –  Speravir Mar 29 at 4:19

As egreg points out, the problem is in the package todonotes. I had exactly the same problem and the solution was to comment out the line

\usepackage{todonotes}
