I have been trying to compile the following tabu environment with xelatex, but to no avail:


\taburowcolors 10{green!25 .. yellow!80}
\repeatcell 2{
text/col2={Row number


It generates an error: "undefined control sequence \end{tabu}."

  • Could you please use one of the other table packages? "Using tabu is taboo", as some one put it, mildly! – kan May 8 '13 at 21:06

Your example does not produce the error that you state. It produces:

! Undefined control sequence.
<inserted text>  \repeatcell

\repeatcell isn't defined by tabu and the text/col1=Teste, syntax looks more tikz/pgf than than tabu.



fixes things.

  • It's a copy from the tabu documentation -- I thought it just worked. – Joseph May 8 '13 at 20:42
  • @Joseph sorry I don't know what I did before: the example is in the tabu doc (it doesn't work though without some unspecified additional package) – David Carlisle May 8 '13 at 21:03
  • @Joseph see updated answer with working code. – David Carlisle May 8 '13 at 21:06
  • Great, it works fine now. – Joseph May 8 '13 at 23:09
