Hi,

I am a non-tibetan, very new to the Tibetan language.
I will need to input sadhanas in Tibetan together with several other
languages into MSWord.
So I start to learn about Tibetan input.

I have installed Tise and Tibetan Machine Uni, these work well on my
PC (XP and WORD2000 with usp10.dll fixed)
I can type a few simple words, but can't go further. For example, I
can type k, g, but can not type kh, ng...

Do we have available a help file for Tise? or may be a keyboard map?
Some instructions about the typing rules... ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Best Regards,
anh

Hi,

There is a readme file at
http://groups.google.com/group/tise-devel/web/readme?hl=en - with a
section "How to type Tibetan" - this should be enough for getting
started.

The only thing I'm not sure of is whether Tibetan Unicode fonts are
displayed well in WORD 2000 - I heard different reports about that. In
Word 2003 surely they do.

Regards,
Grigory

Thanks for your reply.

Not sure what's going on with Word2000, before it didn't work, now I
can type kh and ng...

Still a long way until I can input Tibetan Sadhanas but I can now type
་a few short mantras. Wonderful! Thank you for all your good works!

Best wishes,
anh

To get proper combinations of Tibetan letters with Word 2000 you may
have to update the usp10.dll file with one that supports Tibetan.

Word 2003 and Word 2007 should already have a usp10.dll that supports Tibetan

In Word 2003 this is usually located in
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\office11\usp10.dll.

In Word 2007 it is usually located at C:\Program Files\Microsoft
Office\Office12\USP10.DLL

To get proper Tibetan line-wrap in MS Word

For typing Tibetan In Word you should set the "Use line-breaking
rules" compatibily option - otherwise you will find that lines of
Tibetan text will wrap in the wrong places (in the middle of syllables
or only at spaces).

In Word 2003 you will find this under:
Tools > Options > Compatibility <tab>
scroll down and check "use line-breaking rules"
Then click "Default..", "Yes", and and finally "OK"

In Word 2007 click on the round "Office button" at the top left of your screen.
Then click on the button at the bottom of the menu which says "Word Options".
Then click on "Advanced"
Scroll right down to the bottom where it says:
"Compatibility options for:"
and choose "All New Documents" in the list box
Next click on the little "+" sign next to "Layout Options"
Then scroll right down the list of options till you come to
"Use line-breaking rules" - tick the check box and then click on "O.K."

usp10.dll has been updated and it seems to work well, except some rare
times, but it's enough for me to start typing sadhana.
I suppose sometime in the future I'll have to upgrade my system into
Word 2003 or Word 2007.
It feels good to see the characters displayed on the screen, given I
can not understand Tibetan, it provides a very nice feeling of
"getting into it" :)
Thank you guys for all,
anh
