In Emacs 25.3 (but not 22.3, for example), the search string " " (space) in LaTeX mode is matched by the carriage return character as well as the space character. I can understand why Emacs has been programmed this way: a single carriage return in LaTeX will give a space in the compiled document. However, I'd like to turn this behaviour off in the Emacs search, so that a search for " " returns only spaces. How can I do this?
I've tried looking for answers through Google and through a direct search on SE ("emacs latex mode search") but couldn't find an answer. Grateful for any help.
