The spellchecker is in my email, not in my TeX editor.  There, the space is absent.

The space was introduced (repeatedly!) by the spellchecker. The file name has no space nor do the calls to it.

Just to be sure, is it  “format macros”  (with space, as you wrote) or  “formatmacros”  (without)?

What should I look for in the following situation?

I have a large book project, essentially finished, recently I tweaked one figure and went to typeset the ms. for the final version.

I got an error message: undefined control sequence.  The macro in question, called \bookans, inserts a list of exercises whose answers are given in the back of the book.  It is defined in a style file called formatmacros.sty, which was initially called by another style file, calculusmacros.sty, in the form
\RequirePackage[sectiontheorem,indexdefs]{format macros}
(along with a few other style files).
The macro has been used successfully in the same project in the past, but I decided maybe the call was buried too deeply so I Commented out \usepackage{calculusmacros} and wrote in all the calls, using \usepackage instead of \RequirePackage, into the preamble to the master source file.  In any case, the error message continues. I am getting a similar message for two other macros, one defined in the same style file, the other in a different file, also initially called by calculusmacros.sty.  All of these macros never gave me trouble before this particular run.


Turn off the automatic spelling correction; it's the work of the devil! Uncheck the `Correct spelling automatically' box in the Text tab of the Keyboard Pane of System Preferences.

Good Luck,
