Fonts display improperly

Post by sithi » Sat Oct 29, 2016 5:36 am

In Presentation HD, English characters are displayed correctly, but Thai characters are displayed improperly. This problem can be divided into 2 cases, as sollows:

a) Several fonts, e.g. Basic Sans Black, Arial Black, simply display any Thai character as a rectangle (i.e. box), which is a well-known problem with fonts included with a majority of apps in a 'mobile OS platform' when such proprietary fonts have to display a non-English character. Even in a desktop platform like Windows, this can also be a problem.

b) In contrast, other fonts such as Droid Sans Thai (from the name, I suspect that this font is supposed to design specifically for display Thai), and other fonts like Arial, simply show a blank space for any Thai character.

Is there anything wrong? FYI, my system runs Android 4.2.2
Thanks for your response.

Thai is not yet supported in SoftMaker Office. This is on the agenda for the future.
