hello all,

since there seem to be no activity in this old thread, i'll start a new one, concerning Tibetan fonts in Indesign CC2019. wrongly stacked characters, missing letters by showing squares; with World-Ready-Composer on, these problems still occurs. i'm copy + pasting from a PDF (where it shows correctly stacked and complete Tibetan text without a problem). working on a MacBook Pro, macOS Mojave, version 10.14, all of these fonts are not working correctly:

i tried all kind of work-arounds, like installing older versions of Indesign 2014, installing Hebrew or Arabic versions of InDesign CC, etc. no result unfortunately.

am i the only one? i find it hard to believe a huge market leader like Adobe don't seem to arrange a way to set Tibetan fonts... i really hope someone can support in this problem.

kind regards,

Jampa Tsomo

This is a long shot. If I'm having problems copying and pasting with two programs that support advanced forms of formatting I will introduce an intermediate step involving either Notepad on Windows or TextEdit (in plain text mode) on a Mac. I will first copy and paste into the simple text editor. I will then select and copy everything before pasting into my final program. It sometimes helps. Good luck.

If I were doing this project I would convert the PDF to Word first. I don't think copy/pasting from PDF to Indesign will work. Give it a try and let us know if it works.

Another Tibetan font that doesn't work is Kailasa (standard on the Mac), and it is nothing to do with pasting from a PDF. If I create a text object, and type in the Tibetan, or even paste in the Tibetan from a txt file, the stacking vowels don't work. Is there any simple solution? The links provided by the Adobe Employee are interesting, but ultimately not useful  - one is for Photoshop elements, and the other is for wanting to work the entire time in another language, which is not the case. I simply want to have an English UI, that allows me to type or paste Tibetan characters. I'd love a solution. Thanks.

I'm having the same issue. Tibetan unicode fonts that work fine in TextEdit, and that used to work fine in an old version of InDesign no longer work properly. (I'm on a Mac.) I need to update an old document that included large blocks of Jomolhari-ID, and now the line ends have black squares that I can't remove, some lines don't wrap, and a few stacks mess up. When I replace it with a different font (BabelStone or Monlam Ouchan), text-wrap works, but even more common stacks (such as sku, rgya and grwa) mess up. If I paste from InDesign into TextEdit, the stacks are fine, but then paste them back or retype them directly in InDesign and it's a mess. Please somebody help us!

The only font that I've been able to get to work is LTibetan

I love LTibetan and used it for decades, but the 5-year-old document I have to update was typed in a Unicode font, and LTibetan is not Unicode. It would be difficult to retype the document in LTibetan now because the lovely old WylieEdit of the 1990s no longer works so I'd have to use copy paste from an old document to get certain stacks. (I'm a whiz at typing in legacy LTibetan, but only for updating isolated words in my Ladakhi dictionary document, not for typing 9 pages of text!) 

Or do you mean there is now a Unicode version of LTibetan? If so, where can I get it?
