# Accent problem using texstudio latex

What is the problem with this code? I am working on Mac OS X.

\documentclass[a4paper,16pts,notitlepage]{report}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage[applemac]{inputenc} % pour les accents
\title{Rapport d'avancement}

• Note also that 16pts is not an option of the article class. It doesn't throw an error since it will just pass the option along to loaded packages. (In fact, the only valid sizes are 10pt, 11pt, and 12pt—but that is a different question that I've seen but have yet to find again. – Sean Allred Nov 26 '13 at 4:50

Option applemac is the source of the problem. It seems (compiled on PC) that we can omit it. If not, follow the expalanation from the help message on error about options clash.

• No, it is not the source of the error. When I omit it I obtain any thing. For exeample : État de l'art =ÃL’tat de l’art. – BetterEnglish Nov 26 '13 at 4:33
• @phdstudent Can you then remove  \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} or give both options in one square bracket? – Przemysław Scherwentke Nov 26 '13 at 4:36
