I've just recently upgraded to Tex Live 2015 and I have several files using eledmac package. With the new distribution I get this error in my .log file:

It's obviously related to eledmac package. Any hints on how can I get this fixed?

Thanks

  • an update for that went to ctan I'm sure (doesn't seem to have made it to tl update yet) for now you can just do \def\reseveinserts#1{} so the error goes. – David Carlisle Jun 16 '15 at 16:35

install the last version of eledmac which is in the CTAN, or wait for install by tlmgr. That is linked to the change of etoolbox behavior with the last version LaTeX 2015. It has been fixed, but between the frozen of TeXLive 2014 and the release of TeXLive2015.

you can also add

\usepackage{etex}

before loading eledmac.

I have approximatively the same problem. I use a recent version of MikTeX and when I compile with XeLaTeX I obtain the same error message as fdiog.

I have created an updated eledmac.sty from the latest version of the package. It did not solve the problem for me. Neither when I added \usepackage{etex}.
