I want to create a tie over ng by typing: \t{ng}:

Working tie

The following minimal example causes the tie over ng to be displaced one position to the right, so that it appears over the g and empty space. The problem persists regardless of font. It works fine if I don't load either xeCJK or fontspec, but not if I load both.

I'm compiling with xelatex on Mac OS Mavericks.

\setmainfont{Gentium Plus}

Displaced tie

  • It seems a bug of xunicode-addon. A quick fix is to use \t ng instead of \t{ng}. We will check the code later. – Leo Liu Feb 20 '14 at 8:09
  • I use it inside words and over several combinations of letters, so there is not really a quick fix in my case. I'll sit tight and wait for an update of the package. Thank you! – Mårten Feb 20 '14 at 12:29

The latest revision of xunicode-addon try to fix this bug (avaliable in ctex-kit or Google Driver currently). Please have a try.

Update: The new version is available in TeX Live 2013.

  • I'm not very good at changing things in my LaTeX installation manually, I'll wait until it's available for update through TeX Live. 多謝! – Mårten Feb 21 '14 at 0:19
  • @Mårten: You can download the files in Google Driver and decompress the files to your working directory. That's it. – Leo Liu Feb 24 '14 at 4:05
  • I added the .sty and the .def files in texmf and loaded \usepackage{xunicode-addon}. It did not solve the problem. What am I doing wrong? – Mårten Feb 24 '14 at 12:49
  • Scratch that; it now works, miraculously. Thank you so much. – Mårten Feb 25 '14 at 3:49
  • Actually, I have to withdraw that. I still find many instances where it is not working although I load the package. – Mårten Mar 3 '14 at 1:10
