I have a really pertinacious problem. When using a custom T1 font (e.g., via \usepackage{libertine}, \usepackage{raleway}, \usepackage{roboto}, etc.) everything is working fine, except for a weird spacing between normally formatted text and bold text. Using Miktex and pdflatex. Completely reinstalled MiKTeX today and performed an update today. This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.17 (MiKTeX 2.9.6100 64-bit)

MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[default]{raleway}
\begin{document}
There is a \textbf{weird} gap before that \textbf{bold word}. But not for \emph{italic}.
\end{document}

Result: result

LOG Output:

  • Welcome to TeX - LaTeX! Can you post more of the .log file. It compiles fine for me. – Andrew Swann Dec 7 '16 at 12:44
  • Can you please recompile after adding a line with \listfiles before \documentclass? Please also add to your question the output you get in the log file from ** File list onwards. – egreg Dec 7 '16 at 13:23
  • I enriched the above question with the output of the .log file. – Flinston Dec 7 '16 at 13:26
  • I filed a bug report to the author of mweights.sty. He's usually very fast in fixing issues. – egreg Dec 7 '16 at 13:49

Update 2016/12/10

A new version of mweights.sty has been uploaded to CTAN and deployed in TeX Live, with release date 2016/12/09, which seems to solve this and all other related issues.

Original answer

The last update to mweights.sty introduced some unprotected end-of-lines.

\def\mweights@init{%
% Define any undefined \mdseries@rm etc. 
% Defined \mdseries@rm etc. assumed to be fully expanded!
\ifdefined\mdseries@rm\else\edef\mdseries@rm{\mddefault}\fi
\ifdefined\bfseries@rm\else\edef\bfseries@rm{\bfdefault}\fi
\ifdefined\mdseries@sf\else\edef\mdseries@sf{\mddefault}\fi
\ifdefined\bfseries@sf\else\edef\bfseries@sf{\bfdefault}\fi
\ifdefined\mdseries@tt\else\edef\mdseries@tt{\mddefault}\fi
\ifdefined\bfseries@tt\else\edef\bfseries@tt{\bfdefault}\fi
% In case any unexpanded macros present in \rmdefault, etc
\edef\rmdef@ult{\rmdefault}
\edef\sfdef@ult{\sfdefault}
\edef\ttdef@ult{\ttdefault}
\edef\bfdef@ult{\bfdefault}
\edef\mddef@ult{\mddefault}
}

You can see them after the braces.

Temporary fix:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[default]{raleway}

\makeatletter
\def\mweights@init{%
% Define any undefined \mdseries@rm etc.
% Defined \mdseries@rm etc. assumed to be fully expanded!
\ifdefined\mdseries@rm\else\edef\mdseries@rm{\mddefault}\fi
\ifdefined\bfseries@rm\else\edef\bfseries@rm{\bfdefault}\fi
\ifdefined\mdseries@sf\else\edef\mdseries@sf{\mddefault}\fi
\ifdefined\bfseries@sf\else\edef\bfseries@sf{\bfdefault}\fi
\ifdefined\mdseries@tt\else\edef\mdseries@tt{\mddefault}\fi
\ifdefined\bfseries@tt\else\edef\bfseries@tt{\bfdefault}\fi
% In case any unexpanded macros present in \rmdefault, etc
\edef\rmdef@ult{\rmdefault}%
\edef\sfdef@ult{\sfdefault}%
\edef\ttdef@ult{\ttdefault}%
\edef\bfdef@ult{\bfdefault}%
\edef\mddef@ult{\mddefault}%
}
\makeatother

Thanks for your help, this also solved my spacing problems.

The new version of this file isn't included in MikTeX yet. But there is a workaround: Downloading the new version from CTAN and put the .sty file in the same folder as the .tex file.
