I am trying to use bengali writing product AVRO but since it uses UNICODE by default so working with ADOBE products like photoshop, pagemaker, etc. are not working at all. When i change the mode to ANSI then AVRO works but i also have to change the font to ANSI coded font(unicoded fonts dont work). Now it will be very kind if someone help me with any one of them, please i really need the answer -

1) Collection of Bengali ANSI coded fonts(which i searched but unsuccessful to find any).


2) Method to convert these UNICODE fonts to ANSI fonts(if its possible, I dont know actually)


3) A workaround to use them on Adobe products and still using the unicoded fonts.

    "ANSI" is not a charset. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jan 24 '13 at 5:03
  • Sorry my knowledge in encoding etc is very low. I just tried to explain the problem so i told what i know. – Arin Chakraborty Jan 24 '13 at 11:21
  • There are some ANSI fonts available on the app's site, did you bother to try them? – Karan Jan 27 '13 at 18:53
  • Yes, i have checked that already and with just 2 fonts installed which look just the same, its same as having nothing. Hope you understand thats why i asked for the other two options if possible. Its so frustrating – Arin Chakraborty Jan 27 '13 at 19:11

Windows does not have an ANSI Bengali codepage. If your applications do not support Unicode, you won’t be able to display Bengali text in them.


you can manually write the unicode in micro-word then covert it into shape & use in adobe illustrator or photoshop... I do this where i can't get the ANSI fonts available for adobe & my choices.
