# Weird “Something is wrong - perhaps a missing item”

currently, LaTeX drives me wild on a very weird

"Something is wrong - perhaps a missing item"

It happens in line 3 of the following document, although it only imports the scrpage2-package. Commenting the line doesn't even fix it - the same error appears. Any clues what could be the reason of this weird error?

• If I remove \scene it works... – Rico Jan 2 '16 at 16:51
• Your dramatist package is creating a toc entry for chapter. This won't work with an article class, but you can use \documentclass[oneside,12pt]{scrreprt} – Ulrike Fischer Jan 2 '16 at 16:54
• Works for me. Should have seen this earlier :D – Rico Jan 2 '16 at 16:56
• But I've always been using the dramatist package with KOMA Script article class... How can this be? – LukeLR Jan 2 '16 at 17:41
• In my case, which comes from copypasting the body of a paper in another one with a different preamble, the error was caused by a missing \usepackage{enumitem}. – Immanuel Weihnachten Apr 29 '18 at 13:39

You are using chapter level constructs in the table of contents but the article class does not have chapters, use report:

Your document records a chapter entry in the .toc file, and this confuses the document class scrartcl. The document compiles without error if using class scrbook.
