Free Pali OpenType Font

Postby Bhikkhu Pesala » Fri Nov 23, 2012 10:23 pm

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 My Opera Forum, Technical Section, 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.

I figured out how to install the CST4 Tipitaka on Windows 7 — see my post below.

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:

Dear Dhammawheel Sangha,
after surfing, as a amateur student of pali i would like highly suggest this two:
http://www.buddha-vacana.org/glossary - by far the most complete with references to suttas
http://dictionary.tamilcube.com/pali-dictionary.aspx - online english pali or pali english.Most everything is there. With combination of Concise pali dictionary.pdf - download on the net,basically you have quite the complete resources togheter of the whole pali words.
Have a good use of it
with great Metta

I have added a brief review of the Chaṭṭha Saṅgāyana Tipiṭaka Software to my Software Reviews site.

If you haven't installed this software yet, please do. It's a valuable resource for studying Pāḷi, and doesn't take long to learn how to use. My review page should get you up and running in an hour or two.

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried to install and run it on Windows 8.1 64-bit and came across a few niggles.

It has to be run in administrator mode (right-click and select Run As Administrator), otherwise it crashes on startup. This problem shouldn't occur if the program is installed outside of the Program Files (or Program Files x86) directory, but the user shouldn't have to do that.

Technical niggles aside, it looks like a useful program that could benefit from a modern revamp. Being a royalty free program, it would be nice if the authors uploaded it to GitHub so that other developers could update and improve it.

PDF-XChange Editor now comes with Internet Search providers, and you can delete any that you don't need to add your own, such as the PTS dictionary or Access to Insight.

Then, select any word in a PDF document (Unicode encoded Pali), to look it up in the PTS dictionary. English words can be searched just as easily.

Make sure that you download the MSI installer to get this feature.
