I encountered a conflict between the siunitx and pdfx packages. I had a document working, but after I added the pdfx package I ended up with an

! LaTeX Error: Command \AA unavailable in encoding TU.

Minimal working example (test_angstrom.tex):

\usepackage[a-2u]{pdfx} % Force required PDF/A-2u format

\usepackage{siunitx} % Numbers and quantities


A file with metadata test_angstrom.xmpdata needs to exists. I compile the source with lualatex. When I remove the pdfx package everything works. Any idea how can I introduce the angstrom symbol to the pdfx package?

  • I get no error. Is your system up-to-date? Edit: I get it with texlive 2016, with newer it is ok. – Ulrike Fischer Jun 20 '18 at 21:12
  • \AA is not encoding specific, which might account for this issue. You could try defining the character and using that instead, as shown in a related answer. – Coby Viner Jun 20 '18 at 21:53
  • @UlrikeFischer: It was the old texlive version, thanks. – ziima Jun 25 '18 at 20:48

    I'm voting to close this question as solved by using an up-to-date TeX distro. – TeXnician Sep 26 '18 at 18:01
