Dear All,

On extracting text from PDF (created from dvips driver) certain word spaces are getting closed up, like the characters followed by 'W'. This happens only for serif fonts like Times-Bold, and not with the sans serif fonts like Helvetica.

Can anyone advice, how to get the correct extraction of text from the LaTeX generated PDFs?

Advance Thanks,
