Recently, I've been trying to learn Thai and have set up an alternate Thai keyboard layout. All works pretty well until I try to save a document written in Thai. It seems to save OK, but when I open it later, all the Thai text is represented by small rectangles... i.e. garbage.

What is the secret to saving documents in Thai? I think it has something to do with unicode, but I have no idea how to deal with it.

Any help would be appreciated.

I forgot to mention I am using LO on Win 7.

Do you have Thai fonts in your font directory? I don't know where you get them, but that's what you need.


No, it is not a font problem. There are several Thai-capable fonts that come with Win 7. One of them is Lucinda console. The problem is that the Thai characters are Unicode while the latin characters are ANSI. I have the same problem saving documents written in Thai on Notepad if I save them with ANSI encoding. However, if I choose one of the Unicode options from the encoding drop box, the document is saved perfectly well, using the same font that I use for Thai in LO, Lucinda console. Unfortunately, LO gives no such option. This is definitely a defect in LO.
