Font Shaping: Khmer

cambell
Khmer is a national language in South East Asia. Currently PrinceXml doesn't render it correctly.

See http://www.princexml.com/bb/viewtopic.php?p=7062

Just adding a note here in the hopes that it will be fixed one day.

Thanks.

Is Khmer still on the roadmap or has it already been addressed? If not, when should we expect it to be?
mikeday
It's still on the roadmap, and it may be supported in 2014, it really depends how long other things take.

Any update on support for Khmer font shaping? Is this still on the roadmap?
mikeday
It's still on the roadmap, and we're revisiting our complex script shaping support this year.

Hi, guys!

Have a similar problem with Khmer font rendering. For example, this text:
សត្វ​ចិញ្ចឹម ន្តិ

converts into this:

It's very important for us to be fixed ASAP, since we have lots of customers using Khmer font. Or, as an option, maybe you have a suggestion how to workaround such cases.

Supporting each complex script is a significant undertaking so we may not be able to promise this in a hurry. Our latest build has finally added support for Sinhala script, which completes the basic set of Indic scripts for now, but Khmer and Burmese/Myanmar remain on the roadmap.

I really hope that you guys will do your best with it. Thank you in advance.

The latest build of Prince now supports the Khmer script! Please let us know if you experience any issues with particular fonts.
Petro
Good to hear that, checking.

Dear PrinceXML Support Team,

I hope this message finds you well. I am reaching out to inquire about the current status of support for the Burmese (Myanmar) script in PrinceXML. I have encountered significant issues with rendering Burmese text in PDF documents generated by PrinceXML. Despite trying various fonts and CSS configurations, the rendered output does not match the web version, especially for complex script features and ligatures.

I read a previous response from your team in the forum where it was mentioned that "supporting each complex script is a significant undertaking so we may not be able to promise this in a hurry. Our latest build has finally added support for Sinhala script, which completes the basic set of Indic scripts for now, but Khmer and Burmese/Myanmar remain on the roadmap."

Could you please provide an update on whether full support for the Burmese script is planned or any recommendations for workarounds in the meantime? Any guidance or timeline for this feature would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your assistance.

Support for Burmese remains on the roadmap but work on it has not yet begun at this time of writing.
vtofeliuk
Thank you for your prompt response.

Could you please provide any estimated timeline for when this support might be implemented? This feature is very important for us, and having an approximate timeline would greatly help us in our planning and decision-making.

Do you have any specific requirements for which Burmese fonts you will be using?

We plan to use Noto Sans Myanmar Google Font.
