enter image description heresome times when we want to introduce two or more signs on top of a letter (for example tilde and bar signs over the letter u) they are entangled to each other (especially when we convert it to PDF) which makes it hard to recognize the signs in the final PDF print.

I think I could solve the problem

There was a package used in the latex, I deactivated it and now the problem is gone. This is what I have deactivated:
