## TeXShop tilde not behaving

 Hi,Odd behaviour has appeared in TeXShop (or with OS X 10.13.3) in which the tilde no longer seems to provide a non-breaking space. Instead, I got a ? in the PDF output and the tilde in the source was changed to ? after running LaTeX. Then I changed the input in TeXShop to UTF8 and the ? changed to ËIJ, so I added \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}. Then I got the tilde, ˜, instead of a non-breaking space :/Minimal example and output attached.Is there some setting I need to change? What am I doing wrong here?ThanksAlan --Dr Alan LitchfieldAlphaBytePO Box 1941Auckland, New Zealand 1140 ----------- Please Consult the Following Before Posting ----------- TeX FAQ: http://www.tex.ac.uk/faqList Reminders and Etiquette: https://sites.esm.psu.edu/~gray/tex/List Archives: http://dir.gmane.org/gmane.comp.tex.macosx                https://email.esm.psu.edu/pipermail/macosx-tex/TeX on Mac OS X Website: http://mactex-wiki.tug.org/List Info: https://email.esm.psu.edu/mailman/listinfo/macosx-tex me.pdf (18K) Download Attachment me.tex (199 bytes) Download Attachment

## Re: TeXShop tilde not behaving

 This problem is (probably) caused by Apple, not TeXShop, but you can turn it off. Go to TeXShop's Edit Menu, find the "Substitutions Menu", and notice that you can select         Smart Copy/Paste         Smart Quotes         Smart Dashes         Etc. These items are present not because I think users will want to turn them on, but instead because Apple often turns them on automatically and I think users will want to turn them off. If you use TeXShop's Key Bindings facility, you might also add strange tilde's in that way. By default, Key Bindings are off in TeXShop because I dislike editors that modify what I type.

## Re: TeXShop tilde not behaving

 I’m with you on that one. It is the OS being smart (aaarrrgh). The OS (10.13.3 at least) now assumes every time I use a character such as the tilde, I want it to be an accent.   So type ~ and a vowel and you get ã. But type ˜ and space, you get ~. The same occurs with other characters now too: “ ‘ ` ^ Previously, in Mac OS, you would type Option+whatever then the vowel to get the accents.The settings didn’t provide what I needed but I have worked it out now.ThanksAlan --Dr Alan LitchfieldAlphaBytePO Box 1941Auckland, New Zealand 1140 On 15/02/2018, at 19:17, Richard Koch <[hidden email]> wrote:This problem is (probably) caused by Apple, not TeXShop, but you can turn it off.
