Letters in Indic anguages not displaying correctly

Hi,

I'm creating a book in English and various other Indic languages.  When I paste the Indic languages, some of the letters are incorrect?

This is for Hindi, Urdu and Tamil

I understand Scribus 1.5.5 has more support for complex languages. Does this mean and include Indic languages?

I've done a few hours research. I tried to download the Ghostscript file from the link on  Wiki Scribus but found the pkg file won't open. After an hour or so I learnt this file is not for Windows.

If I can't open and install ghostscript file then I can't download Scribus 1.5.5, is this correct?

I'm new to desktop publishing software, non programming knowledge.

I'm using Scribus 1.4.7 on Windows 10.

Thanks.

a.l.e:
so,basically:

- yes, you need 1.5.5 for indic languages.
  (and the support is said to be rather good)
- no, you don't need ghostscript for getting scribus to work
  (you only need gs for specific features)

so, for your first tries you need to downlaod

https://sourceforge.net/projects/scribus/files/scribus-devel/1.5.5/scribus-1.5.5-windows-x64.exe/download

please give feedback if it did work for you.

Bahsa0011:
Thanks for the quick reply.  Much appreciated.

I'll let you know if it works.

Hi,

It's 64-bit and I'm running a 32-bit Windows.

Is there a 32-bit version?

Thanks
