I'm trying to use the option RPvoltages for the package circuitikZ version 0.8.3 but I get the following error message: ! LaTeX Error: Unknown option `RPvoltages' for package `circuitikz'.

This option however, is mentioned in the package manual (link)

If I omit this option, the package produces the figure shown below.

enter image description here

Code used


      \draw (0,0) to[battery1,v=1<\volt>] (0,2) to [short](2,2) to [C=1<\farad>](2,0) to [short](0,0);

  • Thank you @JouleV, I just checked, MiKTex is up to date. I'm using Texmaker as my editor on a Windows machine – Omar Alamoudi Mar 23 '19 at 20:00
  • I can find no mention of RPvoltages in either the manual or the source. I did fine americanvoltages, europeanvoltages, straightvoltages and oldvoltagedirection. – John Kormylo Mar 23 '19 at 20:22
  • official version of package on ctan doesn't have this option. you give the link to documentation to probably the future version which is still not available on ctan. if you like to use it, than you need to download package from page where you find its manual. – Zarko Mar 23 '19 at 20:29

The manual given in question is for an unreleased (git) version of circuitikz. The option RPvoltage is not supported in version 0.8.3.

Use the git version if you want to use this option.
