I would like to draw diagrams with the tikz-uml package. I downloaded the tikz-uml.sty file from http://perso.ensta-paristech.fr/~kielbasi/tikzuml/index.php?lang=en and put it in the same folder as my test.tex file. Here is the MWE:



Compiling with PDF-LaTeX in TeXLive 2015 with TeXShop (v3.61) works. When I attempt to draw an tikz-uml-specific arrow between the nodes A and B by omitting the % symbol in line 10


I get the following error message:

./test.tex:12 Undefined control sequence.
\pgfmath@dimen@ ...men@@ #1=0.0pt\relax \pgfmath@
l.12    \umlassoc{A}{B}

I recently updated via TeX Live Utility (v1.23). I remember that it worked before. Thanks in advance for your help!

  • Was someone able to reproduce the error? – M. Heuer Mar 16 '16 at 16:01
  • The only solution I found was to switch back to TeXLive-2014. – M. Heuer Mar 31 '16 at 20:15

On the page you linked is a new version tikzuml-v1.0 (29 March 2016)

I tried your example and received:

enter image description here

The \umlassoc{A}{B} creates the line between the two figures, there is no error in my TeXLive-installation 2015.

It seems the problem is solved in meantime.

  • Ah, great! Now it works. – M. Heuer Apr 2 '16 at 11:10
