INDIC UNICODE SUPPORT

May 15, 2008 9:03 PM

Sir,
We would like to purchase Adobe, if we can find INDIC UNICODE SUPPORT (COMPLEX SCRIPT SUPPORT) in all products of DTP and DESIGNING kind. If anyone can help us whether we can expect such one in the future.

Thanks

    Adobe, please respond to this query - its 9 months old! Most of Asia is shut out of your technology owing to lack of complex script support in virtually all of your products. Can you not at least use the default rendering engines in the OS platforms you have software for? We use most other software on Windows, Linux and even Mac OS without a problem now - but not Adobe products.

    And, your monopoly may soon run out...

    Similar case for Nepal. Most Nepalis use Nepali OTF (linked to the Devanagari Unicode Chart) for DTP applications. However, this is not possible for Pagemaker and other Adobe products. And Adobe products seem to the standard used by most layout and design team. What this means is that most publishing houses are not able to use unicode based fonts (which would allow for better search and other features) in Nepali. It would be great if Adobe could explain when it will extend support for complex scripts.

    If adobe facilitates supporting for OTF complex scripts in its products, adobe will the biggest software seller for printing jobs in Nepal as well as south Asia.

    We have difficult time with working with Adobe as it doesnt support our language.. if you could have it support Pashto would be very useful.

    Im not sure why adobe doesnt concentrate on it. I dont think they are not able to do it. South Asia region have significant number of user of adobe products. I think adobe should concentrate on complex scripts supports to their products.

    Adobe, you got to support Unicode (for all asian scripts) or else you'll fail. Because, we,the opensource community we will support competitive opensource adobe look-a-like tools to support Unicode!!!!!!!

    Adobe,

    In Bhutan, we are also fully dependent on Adobe products, especially print and media organizations are heavely using them. However, there are problems since it's based on ASCII. We will appreciate if Adobe could support Unicode to support Complex scripts in their products.

    I'm eager to participate in this forum. Adobe should support Unicode to support complex scripts in all of their products, so that we feel easy to use our Language (Urdu) while using Adobe products.

    Lack of Unicode support in Adobe products has forced us to find work-around solutions to support printing related eGov applications in Sri Lanka. We had to buy extra sw such as MS Publisher for few govt organizations though they have Adobe products. If Adobe does not work to make their products Unicode compatible, eventually all local printing industry will migrate to products with Unicode support.

    I'm not sure how a discussion of unicode support is relevant to this forum. The "scripting" referred to here is that of automation not that which has much to do with unicode.

    I suggest you take this discussion to the Typography forum:

    http://www.adobeforums.com/webx/.eea5b3a/

    and, if I may suggest, please be a bit more specific about which applications you're talking about or just what you mean by unicode support because I was under the impression that Adobe applications do support unicode.
