I just wanted to define a new style, a very very simple one with align left, text width=6cm but I found out even simpler code won't work. Basically I assume my installation is broken or I run the code in some secretly incorrect way. Googled for this for about 20 minutes already and I just can't figure it out.

EDIT My eyes still work fine, by the way. Long day.

MWE

\documentclass[
a4paper
]{scrartcl}

\usepackage{
newtxtext,
amsmath,
}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage{tikz}
\tikzset{
sometest/.style{
    align=left,
    text width=5cm
},
asdfasdf/.style{
    rectangle
},
}

\listfiles

\begin{document}
Test.
\begin{center}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\node {Something text.};
\node[sometest] {AAA};
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{center}
\end{document}
\end{document}

produces

You are missing an = following the .style={}.

Code:

\documentclass[
a4paper
]{scrartcl}

\usepackage{
newtxtext,
amsmath,
}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage{tikz}
\tikzset{
sometest/.style={
    align=left,
    text width=5cm
},
asdfasdf/.style={
    rectangle
},
}

\listfiles

\begin{document}
Test.
\begin{center}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\node {Something text.};
\node[sometest] {AAA};
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{center}
\end{document}
\end{document}

    Oh... right. Let's all move along, nothing to see here, nothing to see here. – henry Apr 9 '14 at 16:22

    @henry: :-) Yeah I know the feeling. I Have quite a few embarrassing questions here myself. But you are probably not the last one to get stuck like this so your question may help someone in the future. – Peter Grill Apr 9 '14 at 16:24
  • Haha, thanks. Yes, once in a while the most simple things turn into mystical adventures, especially due to lousy c & p events... – henry Apr 9 '14 at 16:28

    @henry: My latest question which I am pretty sure will turn out to be quite embarrassing once an answer is posted: \foreach not behaving in axis environment. So, now you can have a laugh at my expense. :-) – Peter Grill Apr 10 '14 at 4:10
  • :) But actually that is very interesting, haven't run into that one yet. Personally, I like TikZ for such kind of graphs more. I only use pgfplots to plot data based on files, i.e. tables from another program. – henry Apr 11 '14 at 7:40
