Chinese Fonts with incorrect punctuation spacing

Our company used to use Ping Fang (mostly because of the wide range of weights and also being available in TC and SC). With Adobe's font changes, I've been searching for a replacement. 'Source Han Sans' appeared to be a good substitute, but when I use it in InDesign the punctuation spacing is very tight. (Close to how we would place it in english, but chinese uses the same space for all characters. Any idea how to fix this? The preview text on the adobe fonts website shows correctly.

Hi Jenny5E50,

 

We are sorry for the delay in response. I am unable to reproduce the issue at my end.  Is it possible for you to share the screenshot of how it's appearing in InDesign? Is the same happening with other Adobe applications like Photoshop, Illustrator? Please also share the details of your operating system. 

 

Which language keyboard you're using as mentioned below?

Thank you for the response Harshika! Atached is a screenshot of the punctuation spacing I'm talking about. My compter is set to English as I don't know chinese. The chinese text is provided by our translation team and I simply copy and paste. They tell me, however that this spacing is incorrect so I need to come up with a font that works the same as Ping Fang used to, or find a work-around. 

 

I tried it in psd as well and it has the same problem. I'm on Indd 17.1 and runnning Big Sur 11.6 OS. I had a coworker test it who is running the new 'Monterey' OS and she had the same problem.
