# colortbl is ignoring \\[] in tabular (MiKTeX, Windows 7)

by rhody   Last Updated January 28, 2019 03:23 AM

In the following sample code, the 10pt row separation is ignored if I use the colortbl package. I know this has been an issue and was reported last year and apparently it was fixed. I am running MiKTeX with the latest updates. My version of colortbl is 1.0d Tue Dec 18 13:34:14 2018. I also did a full update of Miktex to make sure I had the latest packages. Are there any other packages, other than colortbl, I need to make sure that are fully updated?

\documentclass[11pt]{article}

\usepackage{colortbl}

\begin{document}

\begin{tabular}{l}
3.4 \\[10pt]
5.6 \\[10pt]
7.8 \\[10pt]
9.0
\end{tabular}

\end{document}


With colortbl:

Without colortbl

Figure it out after getting the following error on my full project file after I updated everything: "Use of @startpbox doesn't match its definition.” and going to:

"Use of \@startpbox doesn't match its definition." Error on a Table

The solution is to do MiKTeX updates in administrator and user modes. The MiKTeX console lets you select user or admin mode. Select each in turn and install updates.
