Hello. Recently, Adobe announced
its official support for 5 Asian scripts including Khmer in Photoshop (and Illustrator). I'm not sure if that includes InDesign, but it renders Khmer script well through World-Ready Paragraph Composer until the paragraph justification is set. I tried to change the leading, the spacing, and any other option available, but I couldn't get it working.
See the image below.
- Adobe InDesign CC 2017 (also tried in CC 2018, the same results.)
- Adobe World-Ready Paragraph Composer
- Zero-width spaces are used in the text to mark the word boundaries, somehow important for Khmer text.
I also opened a bug report here: https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601180-adobe-indesign-bugs/suggestions/36534535-khmer-script-justification-is-broken
, but no reply.
I hope this could reach people from Adobe. Please correct me if I said anything wrong.
