I want to create an image with some text written on it. The text which is to be written is in Hindi language and I have that text in a ms word file. But I don't know Hindi typing so the only option I have is to copy and paste that text from ms-word file as it is. Now the problem is the same font is working in ms-word file properly but as I soon as I copy it to Photoshop with the same font enabled, it is showing something weird boxes. In short, Hindi font is working for ms-word but same Hindi font is not working for Photoshop particularly in case of copy and paste. Not only one font, I tried many of them but problem is the same for every font. Please help. Proper answer will be greatly appreciated.
@hatstead thanks a lot for quick reply but I think you didn't read the question properly. I said the same Hindi font is working in ms word but as soon as I copy it from ms word file to Photoshop with the same font enabled it shows weird boxes. so, copy and paste is not working even if the same font is enabled in both applications.
Please post something in Hindi text here. I should like to try pasting the message on to a picture file as a block of text, I.e . not using the type tool in PSE.
You can post via the camera icon at the top of the reply box.

hatstead मेरा आज का कार्यक्रम पहले से तय है
Now I go to preferences>type>enable missing glyph protection and now it is not showing weird boxes but another problem is the text is not same as it should be or as copied from ms word. The difference is shown in the attached picture and now this problem is a driving me nuts. Please help.
I copied the Hindi text from your post with the snipping tool in Windows 7
Opened the snip in PSE
I applied a Levels adjustment layer to enhance the text in PSE
Copied the text to the clipboard
Pasted the text on a picture file.
Is this what you are after?
hatstead Thanks a lot for your quick reply, but this is not what I want! Actually when I posted the picture with Hindi font I forgot that you don't know the Hindi language. Actually in the picture I want something which is written on the right hand side to the equal sign ('='). Problem is when I copy it from ms word file or notepad file with same font enabled in the Photoshop, Photoshop automatically converts it to something which is written on the left hand side to equal sign ('='). Believe me I have done everything in last 24 hours to fix this problem but unfortunately none of the solution worked. I also used "Place" option to import the ms word file but again unfortunately Photoshop doesn't allow text files or .doc file format to be placed. So the thing is I want something which is written right hand side but when I copy it to Photoshop, Photoshop automatically converts it into something which is written on the left hand side. I hope you got the crux. Please help!!
Yes same problem I am facing now in my work and have not any solution yet for me....
Nothing more futile & frustrating than a "know-it-all" commenter who 1) Assumes the original poster is stupid 2) Misunderstands the original question and further increases the confusion 3) Posts a sub-par workaround, once has been asked to rectify
Why would someone use such powerful tool as Photoshop while copying snippets of font image from Word? Might as well use Paint if resolution and technical versatility is of no regard.
Sometimes no solution is better than a crappy solution, especially in a matter whose quality depends on small details.
If you have a better idea, please share.
Here's what worked for me:
Hope it helps,
For everyone experiencing this same problem, this works perfectly! Thank you so much! Please try it out. It may not have many likes, but that is because this thread is not viewed much. After hours of frusturation, this fixed everything. Perfect!
Your reply has been very helpful. Thank you. The solution works perfectly.
PSE is not a text editor. That is why I suggested that you copy the text available to you in your WORD document as a "print screen", then paste it to the picture. Windows 7 has the Snipping tool which facilitates this process. Your equipment may vary.
hatstead Snipping tool or print screen or other tools which captures screen doesn't solve my problem thoroughly, you know why! Anyways, Thanks a lot for your time and assistance. Have a great time ahead.
Gagan did you get solution to this problem?
Please help if you know. Thanks
Not getting suitable answer for this problem yet.
Anybody Help... seriously
I had the same problem 4 years back. I solved it by not using Unicode. Copy paste of Hindi unicode and its fonts like Mangal or Mathura etc. never work. Instead I downloaded some specialized softwares which were made specifically to type Indian languages. The most famous (but paid after 30 days trial) that worked for me is Baraha. It worked perfectly when I had to design pages for Hindi text.
For that, first you need to pay some time (around half an hour) learning how to use Baraha. After that, all is easy. Make a Baraha rtf ANSI file after you type the hindi stuff you want, and then copy-paste will work.
Let me know in case you don't follow. I will help you out.
Here are some sample shots
Shot 1: First type the stuff you want. It also has a tutorial how to type in Phonetic way
Shot 2: Then Export it as RTF (ANSI) and open the file.
Shot 3: Now copy the text from the file (for example, here I have opened RTF in MS Word). Make sure that you notice that font is BRH Devnagari.
Shot 4: After you paste text, if it shows weird symbols, Select all text (Ctrl+A) and change font to BRH Devnagari. It will work without problem.
I am trying to do this too - I am English and can't read or write Sanskrit, but I have to design some graphics in different languages/alphabets. Someone has emailed a Word doc to me with the correct text, but when pasting into Photoshop it changes it. Any clues? it's driving me mad! Thanks
What version of photoshop or photoshop elements?
What operating system?
Guys, I have the simple solution of this problem.....
when u copy any hindi or other language text and paste in photoshop or any other adobe software just make of ALLCAPS (TT) Icon in your font property. Boom the problem is solved.....
Big rocket science!!!!!!!!!
Any simple solution after all these years? It's shameful at this point. It's nearly 2019 and problem still persists on the latest version (20.0.1).
This thread is about photoshop elements.
Photoshop CC 2019 has Middle Eastern features which means one should be able to type the text in photoshop instead of pasting.
