I am going to write a paper of the IEEE Access LaTeX format uploaded in this page https://journals.ieeeauthorcenter.ieee.org/create-your-ieee-article/authoring-tools-and-templates/ieee-article-templates/templates-for-ieee-access/ .

But I got the following error message from the TeXShop compiler.

Does anyone have ideas to fix this issue?

My computer’s OS is macOS Mojave, and I’m using TeXShop to compile the LaTeX file. I installed my LaTeX package including TeXShop with MacTeX.

I can successfully compile and create papers of IEEE Transaction format (IEEEtrans.cls).

Thank you

  • Related: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/440422/…. Also using ptex might be part of the problem, to find the exect issue you can try to get it working with pdflatex first. – Marijn May 29 at 8:38
  • You may just use IEEE Transaction format (IEEEtrans.cls), it is accepted as well. – Bora Onat May 30 at 17:51
  • Thank you for your comments, Marijn, KJO and Bora Onat. I could compile with pdfLaTeX not upLaTeX. – user189966 May 31 at 0:59

The access template was designed to work with pdflatex. The author is trying to use it with ptex, which uses different fonts and different color commands.

The author should be advised to use pdflatex if possible. If not, he can work with the IEEEtran.cls version.

  • Thank you for your answer, Bora Onat. – user189966 Jun 3 at 6:17
