During compilation of my document I get the following error:

! Undefined control sequence.
l.27 \font\twtymsx=msxm10   \@magscale

How to fix this problem? Thank you.

  • Please provide an MWE (minimum working example) that generates the error messages you're encountering. Information about the TeX distribution and operating system you use would also be useful.

  • You seem to be using either some very old packages or a very old template. The font msxm10 has been declared obsolete several years ago.
