When I use the xlop package command


to display the multiplication of 453 and 1001205 without the intermediary steps, pdflatex gives me errors. This example comes straight from the xlop documentation.

Is there an easy fix? All other xlop commands seem to work fine for me.

  • compiles fine on my installation (TL2013 as of today)

    Welcome to TeX.SX! I get no error. Can you present a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem? It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.
