This is taken from the adjustbox manual:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{adjustbox}
\begin{document}

Before
\adjustbox{padding*=1ex 2ex 3ex 4ex,frame,margin*=1ex 2ex 3ex 4ex}{Text}
After

\end{document}

But it does not work here.

What am I missing?

TeX Live 14 full updated.

The control sequence at the end of the top line
of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have
misspelled it (e.g., `\hobx'), type `I' and the correct
spelling (e.g., `I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,
and I'll forget about whatever was undefined.

  • How doesn't it work? I get the same result as in the manual. – Torbjørn T. Sep 30 '14 at 13:46
  • @TorbjørnT. It says "undefined control sequence". I reinstalled the package, just in case, but it still does not work! – f.boc Sep 30 '14 at 13:49

    OMG, found it! I had another file called "adjustbox.sty" (written by me) in the compilation directory! What should I do? Delete this? – f.boc Sep 30 '14 at 14:00

    You could delete or you could answer it, note the log file you showed showed you had a local copy of the file in the current directory (./adjustbox.sty) it's always worth checking the log:-) – David Carlisle Sep 30 '14 at 14:24

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a local version of a file that caused the problem. It may not be applicable to a wider audience. – Werner Sep 30 '14 at 15:21

Problem was that I created an adjustbox.sty file into my compilation folder (and then I forgot about it) so my custom sty file was read instead of the TeX Live one.

As David Carlisle noted, the log pointed out that it was reading the local sty file.
