World Ready Paragraph Composer not working for Tibetan
Adobe 2017.1 release, build 184.108.40.206
Adobe World-Ready Paragraph Composer (AWRPC) for Tibetan fonts does not work in InDesign. While this was not an issue in CS4 since the Adobe Paragraph Composer (APC) was working well for at least two fonts (Jomolhari-ID and SambhotaUnicode), it has become an issue preventing us from using any later versions of InDesign: the APC became unusable for Jomolhari (our main font), and since the AWRPC was never completely working, we are now in a situation where neither APC or AWRPC works… (though SambhotaUnicode still works for APC only).
Attached are some self-explaining screenshots (testing 3 different fonts, with both paragraph composers):
In ID CS4: all three fonts work well for the Adobe Paragraph Composer (the highlight in the SambhotaUnicode disappears when unticking the “Substituted Fonts” option in the Composition preference), but not for the Adobe WR Paragraph Composer:
In ID CC 2017 (latest version): we can see that while APC works for most glyphs, it stops working well with special characters like the "inverted guigou” (though still working with one font only). But the AWRPC still doesn’t work at all...
So we would like to request the Adobe World-Ready Paragraph Composer to investigate the issue, in order to be able to use all the available Tibetan Unicode Fonts that actually work well in Microsoft Word, for instance.
