I am having a weird problem. When I compile my documents, Latex drops white spaces between words. This happens only after capitalized letters. For example,
R reports the standard OLS SE, instead of the GMM/2SLS SE.
is typeset in the pdf as
Rreports the standard OLSSE, instead of the GMM/2SLSSE.
I got this PC relatively recently, and this has happened ever since. I am using TeXLive on a Linux Mint machine. I use
pdflatex to compile my documents.
UPDATE: So I inspected that behavior a bit further. It turns out that when I initially type the text, latex ignores spaces after capitalized letters as described above. However, when I go back, delete all the spaces and re-enter them, everything works. Does anyone have a clue why that could be?
UPDATE2*: Until now I did not specify the input encoding in the header, i.e. I did NOT use
I tried that now, but I can't compile the document anymore. Might that be related to my original problem?
UPDATE3: I did not copy/paste any of the text, I just typed it.
*I am not sure how things work here, am I supposed to answer questions in the comments or edit my original question?
