I use texmaker to make my latex documents, and normally it works fine. But now I am working on a file that has stopped updating the PDF document when I use my quick build (PDFlatex + view latex). My tex file was recently modified today and the PDF file was recently modified when I worked on the document last time. No errors occur when I compile my latex document

How do I get an updated PDF file?

Now I have commented out everything such that my document is like:

\documentclass [a4paper, 12 pt, danish] {article} 
\usepackage [utf8] {inputenc} 
\usepackage [T1] {fontenc} 
\usepackage {babel} 

small text 

And it still does not seem as if anything happens when I press PDFlatex. If you need more information please tell me which then I will try to provide them,

Best regards Lone

  • This question does not fall within the scope of TeX, LaTeX or related typesetting systems as defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • I think we need a little more information....if it is caused just by this particular file try commenting out more and more parts of it to try and determine what is causing the problem – Andrew Dec 8 '14 at 11:25
  • Please update your question with that information instead. Did you try restarting TeXMaker? Does it fire up pdflatex if you press F6? – daleif Dec 8 '14 at 11:43
  • It does not change anything when i restart TexMaker, and when i press F6 i can see that the program tries to do something, but nothing happens. The PDF document is still an old version from another day. – Lone Christensen Dec 8 '14 at 11:48
  • Then we start from the basics. Which operating system are you on? – daleif Dec 8 '14 at 11:54

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a system problem removing access to relevant binaries (see comments). – cfr Dec 11 '14 at 23:59
