Hi Taylor and Andrew,

This is a known issue with the Myanmar engine on Windows. We are tracking the issue, but don’t have a date for the fix at this time.

Hi Taylor,

This should work fine in theory. Are you using a mymr or mym2 style opentype font?

What applications, operating system and fonts are you using?

Hi there, has anyone had any issues with the Myanmar character set – i have raised an issue recently where the combination ၣ and ် does not combine correctly to make ၣ် on my windows devices. It used to work just fine. It is am extremely common tonal marker and is a big issue for anyone who types the S’Gaw Karen language, which is a lot of people !
Thanks, Taylor
