      Kruti Dev is a true type font. So, it should work in Adobe Pagemaker. Please check whether Kruti Dev is installed in your system or not and whether it displays in the font drop down menu or not.

    Hello, I’m working in CorelDraw with few Hindi pages. Fonts like Mangal, Kruti give a problem of displaying boxes as soon as I click outside text box. While font like Yogesh doesn’t display “sh” of lakshay, instead converts into two letters “k” and “sh” as well fails to display half letters of Hindi. Any solution sir.

      Hi, Kishore! Kruti Dev font should work fine in CorelDraw. Since Coreldraw does not support Unicode, you cannot use Mangal font in it. But, Kruti will work fine. Just ensure that Kruti is installed in your system.

      Open a notepad file. Click on ‘Save as’. Before saving with some file name change the encoding to Unicode on the lower right side. Save it and close. Then open the same file and paste Tamil text easily.

    • Sally

      Download Kruti dev font from an internet source. Install it in your system. Now you can write in Hindi in Adobe Pagemaker by selecting Kruti Dev font. It is so easy. Or do you want to use a Unicode font? For that you need to use Adobe Pagemaker’s latest version or some other solution. Hope this helps you.

    You are unable to paste in notepad, because you have not changed the encoding to unicode. Follow these steps:
    1. open a notepad file.
    2. Save as –
    3. On the right bottom side, see encoding. Change it to Unicode.
    4 Save the file giving it some name.
    5. Now open again and then paste Tamil text.

    It should work now.
