When creating pdf files from latex via ps2pdf, sometimes there is
an extra space after fi, such as in fi ve. There
are a few solutions that I know of for this problem.
Keywords: latex, ps2pdf, fi, pdf, extra space
- Use pdflatex to compile your Lyx or Latex files directly to pdf.
- Manually go into the ps file and search for \002,
replacing with fi. Interestingly, all the cases of fi
in my files may be replaced by \002, but only
a few have the effect of inserting the extra space. If I knew more
about postscript than random hacks, I might understand this.
- Arun Saha suggested calling ps2pdf as follows >ps2pdf -dCompatibilityLevel=1.3
