I have successfully compiled my document on Overleaf, but I cannot get it to compile on my local Windows machine. I have installed TeXLive, and tried 1) TexStudio 2) TexWorks and 3) the powershell.

Every time, it hangs on this line:
(c:/texlive/2020/texmf-dist/tex/latex/psnfss/t1phv.fd)

Is there something wrong with my TexLive installation? I did not see any error messages during the installation, but it took about 6 hours, so I could have missed something..

EDIT: I am not sure what code exactly to put on here, but a warning is that there is no file filename.aux .

> pdflatex filename.tex

Then it hangs on

(c:/texlive/2020/texmf-dist/tex/latex/psnfss/t1phv.fd)  

When I pressed Ctrl+C in the powershell , this is what I got:

 \citep{name_of_my_first_reference}

\org@@citex ...fe@activesfalse \org@@citex [#1][#2
                                                 ]{@tempa } 
?

I am quite new to local latex, I have only ever used Overleaf. The problem is, when answering to reviewers, I need to have a 'tracked changes' document. I could not find a solution for this in Overleaf, only something like latexdiff, which exists in local latex .

Thanks for any advice and please let me know what other information that would be useful?

    You need to give at least some information to allow someone to help. The line you show is a standard logging of the font definition file for helvetica, and the fact that it ends with ) means that the file was read to the end with no issues. If TeX hangs after that some code in your document after that point is looping but what that loop is we can not guess. Mar 18, 2021 at 18:19
  • @WillieWong ok, i did not know that line was 'totally useless' for troubleshooting, and have pasted more lines.

  • On the Overleaf document where it compiles, can you go to the overleaf menu (top left button), and report back which compiler and texlive version Overleaf is using? Mar 18, 2021 at 18:56

    Overleaf uses the <2020-02-02> release of LaTeX; your installed one is <2020-10-01>; there were some significant changes to the TeX kernel last october that resulted in breakages of many packages across the board. Mar 18, 2021 at 19:04

    Try this: I just noticed that on copernicus.org they pushed a newer version of the document class; the current one is version 9.25 from 2021/01/12; you are using the copernicus.cls file from 2020/06/24. It is possible that the new version may have fixed something. (Even though their website says it is January 15, 2020, the package is actually newer.) Mar 18, 2021 at 19:06

It appears that updating to the newest version of the copernicus.cls document class (version 9.25 from 2021/01/12) can resolve this issue.

Based on the fact that the older document class compiles fine on TeXLive 2019 and on the February 2020 release of TeXLive, I suspect the issue has to do with one of the changes made in the Oct 2020 TeXLive Release.
