    I am using InDesign version 13.1 x64

    Problem: In Microsoft Word 2010 we type a ZWNJ+ZWJ to get the correct form of the next to the last character and the last character. That is next last character should be final form and the last final. When we copy this word into InDesign the next to the last character GA U+182D should be final form and the U+1826 UE vowel should be final form. The GA becomes initial form and the UE also becomes initial form.

    Steps to duplicate:
    1. Open the attached Word document called Mongolian word with ZWNJ and ZWJ
    2. Open the attached InDesign layout called ZWNJ-ZWJ
    3. From the Word document copy the word and past it into your own InDesign layout since we could not attach ours.
    4. The result is what we describe in the problem description above

    See our attached screenshot of our Word document and InDesign layout

    It seems that Unicode Consortium is in the process of recommending to use U+180F for this type of the root+suffix words but it is not yet available. So, as far as we know our only solution for now is to use the combination of ZWNJ+ZWJ.

    We hope you will be able to fix the problem so that the behavior in InDesign is the same as in Word. Because we use the same font in InDesign namely Noto Sans Mongolian.

    I found the answer. In the Paragraph Styles and the Open Type Feature menu when I change the Positional Form to Automatic Form it works and the characters connect.
