Currently I'm using the tabular environment of reledmac package and get the error message missing \endcsname inserted.

I think it's a similar problem like in this thread: Missing \endcsname inserted in table

Unless this time it's not the selection of turkish in the babel package but the polutonikogreek. But I can't solve it yet. Has anyone an idea what might it be? Thanks in advance for your help?

Here an MWE:



\begin{edtabularc}%{c c|c c}
  • Did you try without the Greek to figure out if that's the problem?!

  • Definitely the Greek. Not the shorthand, though. It would help if you could minimise your example.

  • Thanks for trying. Without the greek package loading it's working. I've reduced the MWE by removing the parallel pages environment. How could I figure it out what's the problem?

It is clearly a reledmac bug.

I have corrected it in development branch.

Please download https://github.com/maieul/ledmac/archive/2.4.1-2.5.1.zip, run the .ins file to obtain the .sty file, put them along you .tex file and make feedback.

  • Fantastic! The pdf output is perfect with this version! Thanks a lot for fixing it that fast.

  • Sorry for bothering you again. I still encountered an error when using this code: \begin{edtabularr} \edvertline{2pc}&117 \end{edtabularr} It seems that the "&1" is interpreted as something other than it should be. The MWE is the same as above.
