I have a problem using powerdot with siunitx.

A minimal example is as follows:


This generates the Error ! LaTeX Error: Key 'siunitx/number-mode' accepts only a fixed set of choices.

From the log file, it appears that importing amsgen.sty triggers the error, but that's not under my control.

Can I do anything, or is this a problem for the author of powerdot?

The problem arises because both powerdot and siunitx have a class/package option mode. Since the powerdot option must be passed as a class option (it doesn't seem to be able to be set using the \pdsetup command), then you need to undo that option before loading the siunitx package. This can be done by emptying the internal macro that stores the class options:

\title{A title}
\author{An author}
\date{A date}
