FEATURES



FEATURES:

Lipikar is a desktop authoring tool for non-English languages. It has been designed primarily for users of non-English or foreign fonts on Windows™.

Through its unique interface, Lipikar strives to take away the grind of remembering which character of a particular font corresponds to which key (or keys) on the keyboard, thus making foreign language text-entry a simple task for novices and power-users alike.


WHAT LIPIKAR OFFERS:

Created for academics and serious users, Lipikar has the following built-in features for your convenience:

  • A mouse-hover sensitive zoom window
    See any character/letter clearly before using it
  • Complete character layout with mouse input feature
    No need to remember Ctrl-Shift-Alt-Key combinations
  • Font-based text search
    Search your text with the font it was written with
  • Text save to / load from
    Save your work now to load it later if you are short of time
  • FontBrowser
    Browse through previews of all the installed fonts
  • Custom FontMap Editor
    Create/save/load your own layout of FontMap by picking only the letters you need and arranging them around
  • Keyboard Map Viewer
    Find out which key on your keyboard is mapped to which character of any font

WHAT LIPIKAR DOES NOT OFFER:

So that you know them clearly before you decide to download:

  • Unicode (extended) or DBCS fonts are not supported
    Supports only normal ANSI/ASCII range of characters from ASC(32)/HEX(20) through ASC(255)/HEX(FF) for all Windows™ bitmap fonts.
  • Font files in other folders cannot be used
    Works only with fonts already installed by Windows in your Windows\Fonts folder.
  • Does not display a virtual keyboard layout for typing
    Lipikar is actually a better alternative to it. In this context, please remember that Lipikar's built-in Keyboard Layout Viewer is only for informational purpose and is not interactive.
  • It is not a word-processor
    Lipikar's text formatting capability is limited. A single font with its color, styles (bold, italics) and effects (underline, strikethrough) can be applied to the entire text file, which is limited to about 60,000 characters.
