The new texstudio (4.0.1) added three new buttons to the top right of the tool bar. When pressing them, the insert a \alert{}, \comment{}{} and a \add{} into the texfile. However, compiling them results in an Undefined control sequence. \comment error.

What are these buttons supposed to do? And am I missing a package?

Edit: As suggested in the comments, I have added a code sample here:

    some crazy text what so ever \\
    $ a = b + c $
    \comment{and after the formula}{gg zz uu}
    \alert{some text}

    I think some of these buttons should only be available when certain packages or classes are used. Maybe something went wrong there. At least alert seems to come from beamer.

  • @daleif Oh, ok that makes sense. I first thought that these are linked to the pdf mark-up things, where you can highlight text and add comments.

    You should load the easyReview package for using these commands. Oct 18, 2021 at 14:48

    What a bizarre addition without mention of anything to support it. Seems like one of the developers just "liked it." Github.

    @Isotope: Yes. Or if the toolbar magically appeared once you added easyReview to your preamble. But just to be there, useable and cause failure without mention of a remedy seems to encourage problems. My suggestion would be to remove the Review toolbar because of this ad-hoc-ness.

1 Answer 1

\usepackage{easyReview} % for \comment, \alert, etc.
\usepackage{soulutf8} % for accented letters
    \comment{and after the formula}{gg zz uu}
    \alert{some text őőőő}
  • interested in easyReview, I tried to do a test but it crashes with the xcolor library. is there a solution?
