I've got the system here set up so that just about everything else I ever use is happy displaying any of those languages...I'm trying to cut and paste a single phrase (click here) into either of the image programmes to create a single image using text in many languages
any ideas where the problem might lie...do graphics programs generally handle non-latin characters OK?...is there a form of encoding I have to place the characters iinto first?
I'd rather not settle for screen shots of html pages or any such kludge...because I want the graphic to contain reasonably good looking anti-aliased text...I also need smilar looking text, so "nicking" existing images off the web is as useless as it is unethical
anyone got any ideas?
Can you select the foreign font in the graphics program's type entry function, and type the foreign text in character by character? The hunting & pecking for the right characters could take a while, but typing it directly into the program should get around whatever cut&paste problems you're having...
I've been playing around and have found a java based encoding swapper...so hopefully on monday I can try dropping the characters in directly using GB rather than Unicode
what I really need is a list of the numerical character references though...and not the fscking Unicode one...everyone links to that in english...maybe the Chinese link to some code charts for GB, but I'll never know
Paint Shop Pro uses fonts that are installed in Windows. Paint Shop Pro does not have its own location for storing fonts, it just uses what is available from the Operating System. Paint Shop Pro supports True Type (ttf) and Adobe Type One ( .pfm ) fonts (included with Adobe Type Manager "ATM" ).
Adobe Type Manager (ATM) comes with a set of Type One fonts, all of which we do support. Under Windows 2000, ATM doesn't need to be installed to use the Type One fonts. It is possible to install them the same way True Type fonts are installed. However, under Windows 9x, ATM must be installed in order to have these fonts available.
Paint Shop Pro does support double-byte and bi-directional language font. Double-byte fonts include Chinese, Korean and Japanese. Bi-directional fonts include Arabic and Hebrew. For Paint Shop Pro to support these fonts it must be used within an operating system that is native to that font type. For example: Japanese fonts will not work inside of an American Operating System. It must be used in a Japanese System. The exception to this is with Windows 2000, where you can set up Multiple Language support. You then only need to have the Native Language as the default.
