Devanagari font in layed out in Indesign (using IndicPlus) does not export correctly to a PDF.

Namaste InDesign gurus,
      I have a problem at hand. Wondering if anyone has encoutered similar problem before? Any help is greatly appreciated. And if you're in San Francisco bay area - I can buy you a lunch :-)
Short description: Devanagari font in layed out in Indesign (using IndicPlus) does not export correctly to a PDF. All the ligatures are assembled and displayed in the PDF.
Adobe Indesign Version: InDesign CS5 Design Premium - regular U.S. version (not ME).
Steps I took:
          I purchased CS5 Design Premium and also purchased the IndicPlus plugin to author sanskrit documents in InDesign. I create Sanskrit text using either of the following methods.
1) Itranslator
2) Paste the devanagari from the Itranslator directly into InDesign or paste it first into MSWord and then copy from MSWord and paste it to Indesign.
It doesn't matter how I paste it. After I apply the IndicPlus character/paragraph style so that the sanskrit looks good in InDesign, when I try to export it to a PDF. The PDF does not display the ligatures currectly. It just lists all the characters in order without assembling.
I've spent a lot of money buying CS5, IndicPlus and then I can't even create a simple PDF document from InDesign. It is very frustrating.
Has anyone been able to successfully export a sanscrit document from InDesign PDF ?
(Please let me know if my problem description needs more fleshing out).
I could create the PDF from MSWord directly but I'm trying to use indesign to layout my book. If InDesign cannot export to PDF I'll just have to use MSWord for my book layout. I've spend probably scores of hours trying to learn InDeisn and formatting my book content - seems like it is all going to be waste.
Is MSWord the best choice or only choice for laying out books that have sanskrit text in them?
-Ravi

Has anyone been able to successfully export a sanscrit document from InDesign PDF ?
Not Sanskrit, no, but plenty of Hindi, Nepali, Marathi, and other languages written in Devanagari script - so it should be possible. I don't even use IndicPlus, which by most accounts makes working with Indic text much easier.
1) Itranslator
I've never seen this, but a quick Google led me to the homepage of ITranslator for Windows, where I saw this:
Itranslator 99 (Build 1.3.0.86)  & New Beta Version
uses 8-bit true type fonts and is compatible
with Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP.
For more information, click here.
Itranslator 2003 (Build 2.0.0.38) & New Beta Version
uses 16-bit Unicode-compatible fonts and is working
only on Windows 2000 / XP / Server 2003.
For more information, click here.
So, if you're using ITranslator 99, there's the problem - those "8-bit true type fonts" won't work in InDesign. Can you post a sample of the text you're trying to paste into InDesign? Name the font(s) you are using, both in Word and in Indesign, and if possible make a small sample of the text available for us to test. It's also possible that InDesign is using a substituted font, which could cause this problem. So, if the font name in InDesign has brackets around it, you know that InDesign doesn't actually have that font installed and is auto-substituting. Also, if you go to View -> Screen Mode -> Normal and the text is highlighted pink, you know that the font has dropped. (Unless the highlighting for dropped fonts was turned off - check in Edit -> Preferences -> Composition and make sure that "Substituted Fonts" is checked.
Also, for what it's worth, is there any way you could Place your text instead of copying and pasting? This may be cause of your problem - but even though it probably isn't, it's still worth a try.
Lastly - no, I've found InDesign to be superior for typesetting for almost all languages, but the learning curve is pretty steep, and many of the problems faced by people working in non-English languages are not easy to research when you have a problem.

  • Acrobat/Indesign does not export correct into the selected output intention (eci_iso_coated_v2_300)

    I use the CS6 suite with Acrobat XI at windows platform.
    When I want to save a file from InDesign as .pdf with output intention eci_iso_coated_v2_300 the result is a .pdf with more than 300% ink coverage.
    I tried to transform the result in Acrobat XI into this standard output intention, but also the result has more than 300 % ink coverage.
    What is the reason of this bug?
    Before with Acrobat X this worked without problems

    Hi Rob,
    I was told the new way to work would be to draw files via Bridge direct into the InDesign file
    and I thought automatically the color would not be changed.
    my colourmanagement setting in bridge for the whole CS6 was  ECI isocoated_V2_300
    The Illustrator file was saved without color profile.
    In this test file I used 3 kinds of black: background of pirate in cmyk 79,34 / 72,78 / 59,38 / 79,88 = ink coverage 291 %
    DÜSSELPIRATEN in “black” (if you would convert this in the file with the cmyk button it would be the same ink-percentage as before
    “e.V.” was set to 100 % k
    I set the preferences for Acrobat from InDesign CS6 as pdf X4 with profile eci isocoatedV2_300 in three ways:
    no color conversion
    convert to profile
    convert to profile keeping existing values
    in all tree files the pirates background has 322 % ink coverage instead of 291 %
    Why does Acrobat convert “black” in the wrong way?  If I click in Illustrator on the 4c button to convert the “black” into 4c it is 291% ink
    Acrobat should come to the same result with all profiles: iso coated V2 and iso coated V2_300
    The same happens also by saving as .pdf X3 or .X1
    The minimum what I expect is, that Acrobat reduces ink coverage for black to 300 %
    I also made test with the new ECI profiles for laminated prints from 2012.
    And with newspaper profiles
    In this case the ink coverage comes below 300 %, but only when I choose convert to profile.
    And then the 100 % k converts to cmyk, what I don’t want to have with text.
    Is there no way to reduce ink coverage below a special percentage without changing Text 100% k
    And is there a bug in Acrobat XI with the ECI IsoCoated_V2_300 Profile? For there is no color reduction below 300 % in all conversion settings.
    I can’t test this with Acrobat X or IX, for my computers with this software don’t run with CS6 64 bit.
    enclosed you find my files

  • InDesign CS5.5 does not display fonts correctly

    InDesign CS5.5 does not display Futura fonts correctly. I have removed all versions of Futura from FontBook on my Mac (running Mac OSX 10.7.4) but CS5.5 - Indesign, Illustrator & photoshop - still displays Futura as being open but only InDesign does not display the font correctly. The font displays correctly when I open InDesign CS4 and all other versions of Illustrator and Photoshop.  I really need to use this font. What's going on with InDesign?

    In your first screen shot , there are 2 futura font ,one is Adobe Type 1 font and the second one is True Type, you might have installed both the type of the font on your computer sometime. Now you have removed all the futura font and it is still showing in the Indesign , also the same thing happened with the Minion Pro , seems to me the font cache is not updating.
    First remove the Adobe Font cache's file:-
             At the Finder, choose File > Find.  
             Type AdobeFnt.lst, select the system drive, and then press Return.  
             Delete all AdobeFnt.lst files found (for example, AdobeFnt10.lst).
    then clear system font cache  :-  
    Launch Terminal (from /Applications/Utilities)
    Enter the following command at the prompt and press Return: sudo atsutil databases -remove
    Restart your computer immediately

    When I sign off on yahoo email. I get a blank page on every tab if any are opened. I have to exit out & restart firefox . It does not happen w/any other browser. I have no malware or viruses. Please advise.

    Actually, it's not obvious & common sense would dictate that users' bookmarks would not be left stuck to random computers even once they've logged out of the account. No one wants that if it's a public work computer or if they're traveling & use an Internet cafe. As I am not the only one who has noticed this issue or had bookmarks disappear/be deleted, in addition, common sense would indicate it's not really a very good system. And carrying around a flashdrive to run Firefox off of it is a good solution? Really? Just curious why a useful feature such as being able to login & use your preferences & bookmarks & then logging out removes your preferences when you're gone hasn't been developed. Yahoo keeps my preferences when I logout (it's called My Yahoo!). Maybe a My Firefox or My Chrome solution could be developed.

  • Web pages posted to .Mac using iWeb do not render correctly on IE

    Okay, let's face it - most people out there use Internet Explorer (IE) to view web pages. I just published my web page using iWeb onto my iMac account. The web site renders correctly on my Mac, but does not render correctly on my PC using IE at work. Several other people using IE saw similar problems. For example, IE does not show the links until you run your mouse over them. Also, the text renders as an image (you cannot select text individualy). What do I do to ensure that all the world views the site correctly? Thanks.

    Welcome to the discussions, stoma.
    You'll have to essentially dumb your site down to IE level. Get rid of the cool effects, the transparencies, the rotated images, basically everything that makes iWeb so impressive to use. Make a nice plain site with no frills and you're 90% of the way to near 100% IE compatibility.
    Take all of your images and edit them outside of iWeb (like with other web applications) and that's another significant chunk. There will be a few bits left over, but some of those will be things you can't do anything about (like some of the page elements being created as .png's). You'll be as close to IE compatible as you can get with iWeb.
    Post your URL to let other users post as to what your SPECIFIC site would need.

  • InDesign 5.5 does not meet system requirements

    Hello,
    Currently I have a much older version of Adobe creative suite, CS3. But I am currently attempting to install CS5.5 Master Collection onto my MacBook OSX 10.6.8. As I get to the Install options, I choose Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign 5.5 as those are the programs I use most. However, though both Photoshop and Illustrator meet my system requirements, InDesign 5.5 does not. I have no idea why InDesign does not meet my requirements. And I would like to wait before installing the programs on my computer as InDesign is the program I use most for my work.
    I would just like to know why InDesign is not compatiable with my current computer and to see if there is a possibility to resolve this issue.
    Please let me know if I should be more specific with my questions.
    Thank you,

    Hi, Peter Y.: (FYI, "Peter" seems to be among the most popular names on this forum.)
    Please note that Adobe's method of numbering ID releases is confusing in any language. "CS 5.5 Master Collection" is the full and correct collection name, but it's also the full and correct release name of the ID component it contains, as in "InDesign CS5.5," whether referring to the ID component that is integrated into the 5.5 Creative Suite, or to the single ID CS 5.5 product bought outside any Creative Suite collection.
    On Mac, the About InDesign menu item under the InDesign menu will show a different number, just to make things crazy. ID CS 5 in the About panel is "Version 5." ID CS 5.5 in the About panel is "Version 5.5." In the early days before suites, ID 1.0 was version 1. When suites came in, for whatever reason, the new numbering convention came with it. It's absolutely guaranteed to baffle folks in the same way that, in Paris, "the left bank" of the Seine doesn't relate to which direction you're facing - it's always the south bank.
    As Peter S. says, newer installing a newer InDesign release won't damage an installed older release. However, just to be super-cautious, keep in mind that installing a component from within a collection that has the same number as an existing installation of the same product that wasn't part of a collection may cause problems. For example, if ID CS5.5 was purchased as a single product and installed on a computer, installing ID CS5.5 from a collection may cause damage; perhaps someone on the forum knows if a warning message would appear in a case like this.
    Also, it's well known that installing an older version when a newer version is already installed, can cause problems. For example, if ID CS5.5 is installed, installing ID CS5, ID CS4, ID CS3, etc., will cause problems. The issue is that some newer-version files reside in the same location as same-named older-version files, and installing older versions overwrites the newer files; the installers don't catch this problem, and so there's no warning message.

  • 10g exporting to CSV using client_text_io is not working correctly.

    I have an odd issue which i could do with some help with. I run an function that exports to CSV based on an pre defined record group.
    This has been working fine for many months with various customers. Recently a new customer used it and they have 28k rows in his record group and the export is actually not exporting correctly.
    The record group has a record count of 28331.

  • Fcpx - after selecting part of a clip, marking in and out, pressing the e key does not add it to the timeline.  what do I do?

    At the Mac store they showed me how to select part of the clip, Mark in an out, and then use the key board shortcut, the E, to move back down to the end of the timeline. At home it refuses to do that. I can't even drag it down. I am using Snow Leopard, not lion. Can anybody tell me why I can't get the material down to the timeline except as an entire clip?

    I was stuck in this exact same position yesterday, and wow was it ever frustrating. I can't remember the exact steps I stumbled upon to figure it out, but basically you need to create a "project" (not a "sequence" like you'd think - there is no "new sequence" command in FCP X) and that "project" will in fact be the sequence you are able to add your selections to.
    The same real estate the sequence lives in is also where the "project library" lives, which will overtake your sequence if invoked - look to make sure the film reel icon at the bottom left of the screen is not active (blue). If it is active, click it to make the project libary go away.
    I'm still struggling with FCP X as a long time professional FCP 7 user, and from what I've read this isn't uncommon. Best of luck getting past these fisrt few awkward hurdles and onto the actual editing (which, I have to say, so far I am having a hard time being precise or creative with).

  • InDesign CS6 plug-in not recognized correctly by InDesign

    I have been trying to create a simple InDesign CS6 plug-in that writes to a log file as I'm opening & closing InDesign documents. SDK package had the LinkWatcher sample that I've been using as a reference when creating my solution.
    Currently the problem is that I'm getting a "Adobe InDesign does not recognize mfindesign.pln as a valid plug-in" when I try to start up InDesign CS6 with the plugin. That isn't too helpful as it doesn't let me know where the problem is and compiling the code with VS2010 gives me no errors currently.
    Relevant parts of the code can be found from https://github.com/crnd/MFIndesign/. I've been using CResponder as a base class in my implementation.
    Anyone have any good pointers where & how to start looking for the problem? Or even better if someone can already spot the mistake(s) I've made...

    This is a typical problem to solve, based on my individual experience on this issue i would recommend the following check points.
    Check that your plugin is linking to correct version of libraries.
    Check you are using the correct version of SDK
    Look for the odfrc command line and see that correct flags are being sent as argument to it. Also that the correct version of odfrc is being used to compile the resources
    If possible use the debug version of InDesign, it may give you more detailed error prompt. Like if the plugin you are trying to load is a release version, or the resources are missing.
    See if the resources are actually compiled and the resulting folder is placed parallel to your .pln file, like very truly mentioned by Bartek. Pay attention to what the name of this folder should be.
    Also makes sure that these resource folders are not empty.
    Hope one of these steps does the trick for you.
