I have used the matlab2tikz package from http://se.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/22022-matlab2tikz-matlab2tikz for some time and never had any serious problems with it. Until now; ShareLatex has decided to not open the .tikz files I upload to the platform. I am using the pgfplots package together with tikzscale package, same as I have used in the past but now it won´t read the files I upload. It accepts files I have previoulsy uploaded but the files I create using (for example) the matlab2tikz('niceWave.tikz') command is not accepted even though this command is identical to previously used commands. I have tried looking for other ''.tikz creator''-commands, pasting the .tikz file into old and well-functioning .tikz files but nothing seems to work.

This drives me CRAZY! Has anyone got an idea? This problem has occured just as I have started a matlab and LaTex intense batchelor thesis so all help is most apprecieated :)

Thanx alot!

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • sharelatex will not have decided anything, if the files are not working tex will have given an error message, in which case you should put the full text of the error into your question in a {} code block so line endings are preserved. – David Carlisle Jan 23 '17 at 22:14
  • What does "not accepted" mean? What error do you get? – Scott Seidman Jan 24 '17 at 0:37

    It could be that ShareLaTeX only allows uploading certain file types, and that if you use .tex as the file ending instead it would work. If the uploading is the problem, that is. It is not really clear what you mean, so I'll vote to close. If it's still a problem (perhaps unlikely after this time), do edit your question to clarify, and we can reopen. – Torbjørn T.
