# Abstract problem

Whenever I try to copy the abstract it gives me the following error:

(Package inputenc Error: Unicode char \u8:α not set up for use w ith LaTeX.

See the inputenc package documentation for explanation. Type H for immediate help. ...

l.27 \maketitle)

What should I do?

• Can you supply an MWE? – Richard Jul 23 '15 at 20:00
• @ahmed Just provide an example of your code. Unicode characters are unsupported in plain latex without a few tweaks (\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}). Try typesetting your doc using xelatex or reading this: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/34604/… – Jonathan Komar Jul 23 '15 at 21:29
• If you are copying the text from some webpage or other pdf file, when you past it into tex file you have to replace those Greek letters by $\alpha$ for example. – Sigur Jul 24 '15 at 7:17
