Creating Urdu Documents in Mac September 20, 2007

Posted by asimag in MacBook Pro, Urdu.

You can create Urdu Documents, Spreadsheets, Database on your mac.

Solution 1:

Use built in International Preference Panel to enable Urdu. Goto this site for instruction on enabling Urdu Keyboard on your mac. Using this solution you can type urdu in any mac application by using Urdu Keyboard (Pakistan Flag) from top menu bar.

Solution 2:

You will need following software:

Parallels (Windows XP), InPage 2.4

Launch Parallels Desktop on your mac and inside it launch InPage Pro. Create Urdu Document in InPage.

Export Document created in InPage in .eps format using Export Menu

Drag file create in Windows to Mac Desktop.Open the dragged file and Preview Application will automatically open .eps document.

You can also edit or use .eps document in Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop. You can even cut and paste specific text from Preview Application to Adobe.

The advantage of this solution is that .eps files are scalable and can be edited or sized to any dimensions. Moreover you get Natural Nastaliqe Font and have a choice of different fonts which are offered by InPage Program.

In my opinion mac is way better in handling .eps files.
