InDesign CS5 and Indic scripts

Devadaru's picture


We are grateful for the world-ready composer in CS4, which allows one to set Indic unicode fonts, and grateful to Thomas Phinney for revealing how to activate it.

Has any additional functionality been added in CS5—like, for instance, page numbers in whatever script one wants?

(Previous thread on CS4 and Indic scripts here.)

WinSoft ScribeDOOR CS5 is still probably the easiest way to get some user interface to control the world-ready composer (along with additional features that improve the work with Indic scripts):

It's quite affordable (€69 for the InDesign version, €99 for the InDesign + Illustrator bundle).

That does look helpful. I take it then that CS5 doesn’t yet support page numbering in scripts other than roman...
