Dear friends,

The indic font Crimson Pro is not rendering properly. It renders great on google fonts page (see screenshot) but not in inDesign (See screenshot). I have enabled World Pragraph Composer.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you so much...

Try a different font, Adobe Devanagari for instance.

I have a few questions to go with my suggestions:

 

  1. If you print the font from InDesign, how does it look? How about if you print the proof page in Google Fonts?
  2. If you create a PDF from InDesign, how does the font look in Adobe Acrobat? How does it print from there?
  3. How do you intend to use this font with InDesign? To create print output? To build digital publications?

 

Answers to the first two sets of questions help you determine if the print font is problematic, or if the screen bitmap rendering is. Answers to the third, if the font prints OK or there's just an issue with how it looks within InDesign, will help you determine whether you really need to care.

 

If you can output the end result you want, InDesign screen rendering is a bother, but perhaps not significant in the total scheme of things.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Randy

I don't think Crimson Pro has the glyph ṁ (latin small letter m with dot above GID 1117). So it won't print.

Adove Devaganari has it:

 

sāpi taṁ cakame vīkṣya
nārīṇāṁ hṛdayaṁ-gamam
hasantī vrīḍitāpaṅgī
tan-nyasta-hṛdayekṣaṇā

I defer to your knowledge of this.

 

The steps I offered are good to define issues with any font rendering with InDesign. I'm not familiar with this specific font, or its usage. I respect your specialized knowledge here. Because I can't help with that part of the issue.
