Indian Fonts showing as Squares
« on: May 04, 2013, 03:00:22 pm »
Hello,

My environment:

  Pinguy OS 12.04 64bit
  Scribus 1.4.1.svn
    Build ID: C-C-T-F-C1.10.2-64bit
    Using Ghostscript version 9.05

I am new to DTP and am exploring the possibility of using Scribus to create artifacts in Indian Languages.

The Sanskrit2003 font shows fine in the Text Editor.  But when I save/verify and switch to the Layout Editor, it shows squares.

The same text shows up fine using gedit or LibreOffice.

I tried other similar fonts and they are all showing up as squares in the Layout Editor.

Wondering if I am missing some basic configuration.

Thanks.
Anand

I tried with the Developmental Release 1.5.0.svn and the text is visible in the Layout Editor.

But the word/line spacing is not as it should be.
