Serbian characters š,đ,č,ć,ž are not included in most of the fonts

Nov 8, 2010 9:02 AM

Serbian characters are not included in most of the fonts in Adobe products and its bad for creativity. I wonder what can I do to change this? Where to start? Any advice?

    Photoshop doesn't include too many fonts - mostly we use the fonts from your system.

     

    What fonts, in particular, were you referring to?

    Again, which fonts in particular?

    We don't ship many fonts with Photoshop, and we want to make sure that we are talking about the right fonts.

     

    You're right, I don't care about the politics, but please just tell me which fonts are missing which glyphs.

    If you just keep hand waving, we won't be able to do anything about it.

    We need specifics to present to our type team so they can fix the problems and we can verify the problem and solution.

    Hello Bojan.

     

    Just few fonts from your list can be found on Adobe Font Folio 11 (http://www.adobe.com/products/fontfolio/). So, Adobe cannot held responsible for characters included in Character map. But, Mr. Cox knows that far better. What you have to do is to directly contact creators of these fonts and ask them to include Serbian characters, but before you do that, you have to have licence's for these fonts also, which I hope you do. From time that I remember, there always was trouble with Serbian special characters, and we even modified existing fonts to make them usable.

     

    There are some things already happening here in Serbia regarding education and stuff.

    Take a look here: http://www.indesignusergroup.com/chapters/subotica/

    Yes, it's not Photoshop

    Also, take a look here: http://indisnip.wordpress.com/

    All made in Serbia

     

    Hope that helps.

    Yeah, most of those are not Adobe fonts and don't come with the Creative Suite or Photoshop.

     

     

    Right now, it appears that only our most recent fonts have complete Serbian glyphs:

    Garamond Premier Pro, Hypatia Sans Pro, Arno Pro, Minion Pro, Myriad Pro, Sava Pro, and Warnock Pro.

     

    Our type team has said that all of our fonts going forward will have Serbian glyphs.
