    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – samcarter Jul 27 at 21:23
  • Hi, that the latex code I have include literally hundreds of lines of configuration (granted some of it does nothing), so I am not sure what post since I don't want to dump all of that here. – jam Jul 30 at 14:12

    Please reduce the code to the minimal amount that still produces the error. See minimal working example (MWE) for some suggestions how to make a MWE. – samcarter Jul 30 at 14:15
