I'm not an expert in Burmese, but generally said, Burmese should work.

I have tested it with this text:

 

Pyidaungsu Font နှင့် Keyboard တပါတည်းပါဝင်ပါတယ်။ အထောက်အပံ့ပြုထားသော ဘာသာများမှာ- ဗမာ, သက္ကတ/ပါဠိ, မွန်, ရှမ်း, စကောကရင်, ပိုးကရင်(အနောက်ပိုင်း), ပိုးကရင် (အရှေ့ပိုင်း), ပအိုဝ့်ကရင်, ကယား, အရှိုချင်း,
ခန္တီးရှမ်း, Aiton & Phake, တိုင်းလျမ်ခေါ်ရှမ်းနီ, ရွှေပလောင်, ပလေးပလောင်, ရူမာည်းတအောင်း, စသည်တို့ဖြစ်သည်။

 

I just copy and pasted into FrameMaker, and it looks good to me:

I have used Microsoft's Myanmar Text font.

You can find more information about Microsoft's font "Myanmar Text" here.

As it is an OpenType font, it supports Unicode.

The Character Designer's purpose is changing the look and feel of single characters/words.

For general font changes, you should change the pararaph style itself with the Paragraph Designer.

You can also do global font replacement with > View > Panels > Fonts. The Fonts panel lists all fonts in the current document. You can double-click a font to change a font to some other font in the whole document (including style defintions).

What is the failure mode?
What is displayed for the attempted characters? A question mark or some unexpected glyph?
If the font is:

  • Unicode, and populates the ranges:
    Myanmar Range: U+1000–109F
    Myanmar Extended-A Range: U+AA60–AA7F
    Myanmar Extended-B Range: U+A9E0–A9FF
  • The code points of interest are all BMP (U+0000 to FFFF), and none in SMP (U+10000 and above).
  • The font is not a "Variable" OTF font

It should work in FM.

Microsoft's font Myanamar Text populates all three, and it works fine in FrameMaker:
