Comment 2 Mayank Jain 2006-10-20 03:40:42 EDT

I already have a working fix for this, but I need to know that which keys in the
keymaps (inscript, phonetic) should this ZWJ be mapped to.

Rajesh, can you please provide me the keys to which ZWJ be mapped to (for

Comment 3 Rajesh Ranjan 2006-10-20 04:13:48 EDT
Hi Mayank,

I think it would be better if we can have same keys for inscript and phonetic (
ie  d and f respectively) and by pressing these two times continuously we can
get the resultant halant ie not going to combined with the charactor next to

In this way it will be easier to memorise it for user as well not need to
replace or shift any other charactor.


Comment 4 Mayank Jain 2006-10-20 04:54:28 EDT
Okay, mapping the following

"dd" to 200d in inscript
"ff" to 200d in phonetic

Comment 5 Mayank Jain 2006-10-20 05:27:19 EDT
After mapping, following can be typed (as per in screenshot in comment 1)

Comment 10 Rajesh Ranjan 2006-11-02 06:35:39 EST
By mistake, Instead of 200c, in keyboard layout 200d is inserted for the
required value.
200c is required for halant to be not connected with the next charactor after
the halant.
