Latex doesn't want me to write "esquisser". Does that mean something in Latex terminology and am I creating a command by using this word? How can I use it without creating any command?

    What do you mean? Can you show a tiny document with 'esquisser' in it that gives an error? What error do you get. Or is it just your editor which thinks the word is misspelt? – Alan Munn Oct 22 '13 at 15:16

    No it doesn't mean anything. What is the context in your document? – Bernard Oct 22 '13 at 15:16

    Welcome to LaTeX Stack Exchange! I assume that by "doesn't want me to write" you mean that Latex displays an error. Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for answerers to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – Alenanno Oct 22 '13 at 15:30

    If you want to know what exactly caused the problem: Delete the offending line; does the document compile? If it does not compile, the error lies elsewhere and only becomes apparent in that particular line. If it does, re-add small pieces of text (one word, for example) and recompile until the error occurs. – moewe Oct 22 '13 at 15:41

    I already had such problems, and usually it was due to a mix of utf8 text, text with another encoding and invisible characters. As ar as I remember, I solved the problem by copying the rest of the document to a brand new document,retyping the preamble and compiling this new document. If everything was OK, I retyped themissing line. – Bernard Oct 22 '13 at 15:49
