Sinhala rendering changes when brought into InDesign

Cathy Taggart

I am working with variable data and when I bring in my text (in Sinhala) which is correct in my data, it is changed as soon as it is placed in InDesign. What do I need to do in order to maintain the correct rendering of the text.

I can send you an example if you need to see what happens.

Is there something that needs to be done to add Sinhala to the World-Ready Composer?

This depends on the version of InDesign you're using.

If you're using the Cloud version, this means you're completely off your machine + Adobe controls what fonts are available.

If you're using Creative Cloud InDesign, you'll have to contact Adobe + ask them to make the correct font available.

If you're using, a local version of InDesign, it should have ingested all your system fonts. If not, then best to open a ticket with Adobe to determine why your font has been missed.
