I'm trying to use the tickz package with TexMaker:

\begin{document}

    There is no 'c' in tikz. Maybe turn off auto-correct in your editor. :) – Alan Munn Jan 21 '18 at 16:18

    ... and a lonely \end{picture} doesn't make sense either. Use \begin{tikzpicture} and \end{tikzpicture} instead. – user121799 Jan 21 '18 at 16:27
