I created my LaTeX document using the xcolor package loaded like this

\usepackage[usenames, dvipsnames, svgnames, table]{xcolor}

Now I'm trying to put the document in the journal format and I get a package clash for xcolor so I ended up commenting the line above. The problem now is that all the colored names I use are no longer available. Is there a way to solve this issue before digging in color names and redefining the colors?

    \PassOptionsToPackage{usenames}{xcolor} should work, in my point of view

  • usenames isn't required anymore: it is the default. But you can pass the other options, as suggested by @Christian Hupfer.
