    Default Issues with InDesign in THAI ?

    Every time I have to do DTP in InDesign for Thai, my Thai reviewers tell me that the upper/lower letters are always shifted (not right on top, or bottom of the main letter). I think it's due to the paragraph settings.
    What do you think? How would you solve it?

    Hi Nabyl,
    Maybe you need to activate the World Ready Paragraph Composer option in order to see ligatures properly.

    I am not familiar with "World Ready Paragraph Composer"- Where can I find it?

    Hi Nabyl, hereīs a screenshot of a text with the World Ready Paragraph Composer turned off and on. Please see differences.


    The text on the left is with the option turned off while the text on the right is turned on.

    To change this option you have to select your paragraph, and then Click Ctrl+Alt+T. When the Paragraph Options window appears, click in the right top corner menu and then select World Ready Paragraph Composer"

    Hope it works

    Thanks for the info and the screenshots Santiago. The World Ready Paragraph Composer option is very important and necessary for Thai language.

    Hi Rodrigo,
    not only for Thai but for all Asian and Middle East languages as well. When working with non-occidental languages you always need to turn this option on if you want to see them properly.

    Does it come with the InDesign license? Or do you have to pay extra for it?
