How to use Czech characters

How to use Czech characters
2 years ago
Hello,

From time to time I need to use some Czech characters like capital R-hatchet "Ř" (U+0158) etc.
The fonts I use are Times Roman (from Calamus) and Open Sans. It seems the characters I want aren't include in the fonts.
Is there a easy way to get these characters in the text?

Thanks,
Martin

I'd recommend to use TTF for this.

First of all, press [F10] to open the Fonts dialog. Then check that your True Type Font loader module has been loaded. (If the PS Type1 Font loader module is also loaded, please remove it.)

Now you can click on [Load] and select a TTF font in the file selector. Before you click on [OK] to load it, press the [Ctrl] key. A tiny Encoding window will open and allow you to select the codepage to be used when loading the TTF. Select "Windows-1250 iso-8859-2 Central Europe". This will load the codepage which contains the Czech special characters (if they are defined in that TTF).

In order to do this only once per document, keep in mind to embed your loaded document fonts into the document ("Options > Fix document > When saving the document ... Fonts: (*) Embed").

In order to save loaded TTF as CFN, you need the optional FonTools module.

Thanks you very much. That Ctrl-thing did the trick

I own you one.
