Chinese fonts in FrameMaker 9

Mar 5, 2009 9:28 AM

We're long-time FrameMaker users; and we set Chinese mingled with Western characters for one of our jobs. This worked fine in FM 4, was broken in FM 5 and onward, and seems to be possible again in FM 8 and FM 9 (we have FM 9 and are testing).

In testing FM 9 with Chinese, we find that the PMingLiu font displays and prints correctly but that FM 9 inserts a blanks space (which is not deleteable) at the transition point from the Chinese to a Western punctuation (or other character; typically, however, comma, period, parens, bracket, etc.). This is a killer problem, in that we cannot remove the space and we very much would prefer to use FrameMaker.

Has anyone else noticed this problem? PMingLiu is a common Windows Chinese font. We are testing with other fonts (but for the moment, using PMingLiu is important to us).

    Hi Jim,

    I am sure you would have tried these:
    1. Para Designer -> Asian Tab -> Western/Asian Spacing -> Optimum -> Change it to 0%
    2. Creating Combined font for PMingLiu + TimesNewRoman(etc)

    Do send me your .fm file if in case this issue still exists at
