Sinhala Unicode does not display correctly in Libreoffice impress

asked 2019-04-30 16:26:41 +0100

I am using linux mint in my home laptop, and I have installed Ibus (m17n) input method with Sinhala unicode. (utf-8) The input method is working fine in browsers and other system apps like notepad.

However when I use it on Impress, the order of the letters changes dramatically. For example ක්‍රමය would type as ක්රමය this is only one, but there are many changes like this.

I have checked the language settings and they are fine. However I have noticed that libreoffice writer is not detecting the language as sinhala (in the status bar at the bottom) when I start typing. I have to select the text and change the language, on Impress, the Sinhala language cannot be even seen.

I tried ajusting the settings in the preferences, related to asian languages, but nothing happened.

I have even tried changing the fonts for sinhala language. It also didn't work out.
