Hi everyone, I have a question...why is it that if I copy and paste pali from an online source, to either this site, or to a Word document, that the 'n's and 'm's (the ones with dots either over or under them, that is) are enlarged somewhat...? In fact, when I paste it to Word it gets even more distorted than the example below:

Ekāyano ayaṃ bhikkhave maggo sattānaṃ visuddhiyā sokapariddavānaṃ samatikkamāya dukkhadomanassānaṃ atthaṅgamāya ñāyassa adhigamāya nibbānassa sacchikiriyāya, yadidaṃ cattāro satipaṭṭhānā.

In short, how can I get the pali to stay the same, with no distortion at all?
Thanking you in advance,

manasikara.

Hi Tilt, I tried your suggestion in Word, highlighting individual letters one at a time, and slightly reducing their font size. It worked, but would be a very time-consuming exercize if one was doing a fair bit of transcribing. I think maybe the 'pali fonts' program thingy I downloaded over a year ago isn't quite right, somehow. I am quite lacking in tech savviness, so it might take a while for me to sort this issue out...but thanks for your idea, in the immediate term that certainly does work.

I highlighted the whole sentence and increased the size (via trial and error) to match the size of the odd letters. Much less time consuming. Using the "font size" option i found this works as the size:

Code: Select all

[size=115]Ekāyano ayaṃ bhikkhave maggo sattānaṃ visuddhiyā sokapariddavānaṃ samatikkamāya dukkhadomanassānaṃ atthaṅgamāya ñāyassa adhigamāya nibbānassa sacchikiriyāya, yadidaṃ cattāro satipaṭṭhānā.[/size]
Use the large and change the "150" to "115" for the size. It is not perfect, but if you want consistent sizing on the forum, that is one clumsy way to do it.

Hi manasikara
change the font! not all fonts have the relevant letter so borrow from another which doesn't show, new times has but it is a new addition, I use tahoma.

sending it thi way as I am being naughty going online at this time :spy:

Tilt, thanks for your suggestion! Duh, of course...just highlight the lot, why didn't I think of that??

Manapa - I thank you also for the tip about Tahoma. I hope you didn't get into any trouble by helping me out online, at that hour! Though I'm sure the Abbott would forgive anything related to dhammadhuta...

Bodhi Monastery has recently made some great improvements to their website. Added to Bhikkhu Bodhi's wonderful series on the Majjhima Nikaya, which remains available, are many new recorded talks, including a series of lectures by Venerable Bhikkhu Bodhi on the Sutta-Nipata, as well as the Paramis, and Ven. Bodhi's A Course in the Pali Language, using James Gair and W.S. Karunatilleke's A New Course in Reading Pali as source text. This is over forty hours of instruction available free and a wonderful resource for beginning Pali language students. http://bodhimonastery.org/a-course-in-t ... guage.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Hello all,

Not sure if this has already been posted:

Sutta translations - hover the Mouse over pali words for their individual meaning. Great site (thanks to RobertK for bringing it to attention elsewhere.)

Free Pali OpenType Font

I have just completed a major upgrade of my Pali OpenType font. I haven't uploaded it to my site yet as I want to get some feedback from Pāli scholars to see if anything needs fixing.

To make use of the OpenType features you will need a supporting application such as PagePlus X5 or later, Word 2010, or InDesign. Other applications can still use it for Pāli, they just won't have access to the OpenType features described in “Pali Description.txt.”

The archive uses 7-Zip Compression to keep it small.

It might be best to send any feedback to me by email rather than cluttering this sticky thread with off-topic discussion. Or start a new thread on Dhamma Wheel if you think printing of Pāli needs a discussion.

Digital Pali Reader Firefox plugin:

Among other features, you can highlight Pali text on any web page and right-click and get a translation.

Dear bhante,

I have a WinXP Professional x64 system and CST4 works perfectly for me.

Do you have the required version of the Microsoft .NET Framework? You can get it here:
